Saturday, March 24th 2012

Thanks for the winter vocabulary. In Belarus we have the same winter conditions like in Canada. so it’s usefull to know how we should characterised that outside weather. to tell the truth I hate winter. but…

Saturday, March 24th 2012

I thank for teaching English.

Saturday, March 24th 2012

Hi Alex i wanna ask something
what is the difference between few/little and fewer/less?
thx for the leasson btw :)

Saturday, March 24th 2012

    Hi, Ayarinanda. We come from the same country. If you don’t mind, allow me to give you a hand.

    1. Few and Little
    -Few is used before countable nouns.
    e.g. Savanna is a large and flat grassland area with few TREES.
    -Little is used before uncountable noun.
    e.g. She arranged her speech hastily with little PREPARATION.

    2. Fewer and less are usually used for comparative statements.
    e.g. Because Junior is still less than three years old, He has fewer teeth than his ten-year-old brother.

    Sunday, March 25th 2012

    Rifai gave a good explanation. :) Thanks for your question.
