Did you get all those quiz questions right? Good for you!
First to post a comment and pass the quiz with flying colors, what else can you ask for?
Congrats! Have a great weekend!
Same as me,that quizzes little bit easy:)
10/10 :D However, maybe I didn’t know about “unchanging nouns.” Thank you, Rebecca. Helpful :)
unchanging nouns are nouns that stay the same…
plural or singular…
example: 1 fish, 5 fish
2 sheep, 1 sheep etc

Yay I have got 10/10!!! Thank you so so much for your lesson, Rebecca!!! Now I understand these mistakes I had before. Anyway, thank you.
I got all correct answers. It’s very helpful to learn the irregular plural nouns.
It’s important to learn irregular nouns. I got 100 Are there any another irregular nouns? Rebecca
actually I found some for example
person/people bacterium/bacteria cactus/cacti focus/foci fungus/fungi series/series ox/oxen mouse/mice goose/geese tuna/tuna salmon/salmon
THANKS FOR YOUR USEFUL LESSON
The plural form of ‘focus’ can be either focuses or foci. The latter is more formal than the former. Greetings!
thanks you so much acidkike
Good that you are applying what you have learned by finding new examples. Yes, there are many more. You could google the topic to find lists of many more such nouns. All the best!
Thanks Rebecca! but I have a question: can I say or use the unchanigin nouns in the plural form, for example the fishes, is that correctly?
I think such as in lesson if you want to say many fish you can say “Those/These fish” but you want to say a fish you can say “this/that fish” .
Its an interesting way to learn because its explained very clear

Could you indicate some website where we can find a list of irregular nouns?
Yes Mam Rebecca, we need to know other irregular nouns…
i’ve found this site…
Thank you very much I got 10 correct out of 10 . Yesss!
Very good site I have been entering this site and I found it very much useful.
In this Quis I got 10/10
I scored out of marks in the quiz.
Rebecca could you tell me which sentence is correct?Police is/are going to help us to solve this criminal case?Is it correct using is or are in this sentence?
Many thanks for this helpful lesson :-)
It’s police are. Police should be used with a plural verb. However, many people including media treat “police” as a singular noun nowadays. So I guess, it’s not wrong to say “police is”.
I really appreciate your kind reply to my query.Thank you very much indeed for your cooperation.
Actually, we can only say:
The police are …
All the best!
Thank you so much Rebecca for your kind reply :-)
It always has been a great experience for me to improve my spoken English with a great teacher like you.Many thanks.
Thank you Rebecca! Plurality of nouns is one of the hardest things to master for me :( This video helped a lot!!

I GOT 8 MY MISTAKE
THANKS TOO MUCH TEACHER REBECCA
YOUR LESSON ITS VERY CLEAR
I love this lesson and the test. Thank you very much!
10/10- In fact this theme is very complex, choose between is/are is very complicated. For me, of all sentences above, which we have learned “the news…. is” make me think twice because “news” in Portuguese is plural. Thank you Rebecca
Yes, Jorge, good point. That is why it is necessary to pay special attention to these irregular words! My best wishes to you.
thank you very much :)
Congratulations to those who did well on the quiz and thanks to all for your feedback. Glad to hear that so many of you were able to apply the principles. There is no other way to master some of these irregular combinations except through practice! All the best with your English.
Thank you Rebecca.
Thank you so much.
Thank you for the lesson.
What is the difference between goose and geese?
Thank you so much for the lesson rebecca, I always had problem is this subject and couldn’t distinguish between them. thanks to you I know the categories know.
I was done the test successfully. I got 10 correct. You taught very good. You had a good inspiration for everyone.
you are making a great change in my future
10 out of 10 thank you so much MRS rebecca you are a great teacher
thank you so much!
I would appreciate it, if you would be so kind as to let me have a piece of information about two preposition. Let me presently explain:
It is necessary that I should say : I am AT University or I am IN University. I do not know what is right in UK, Canada and Usa. I pay my respect to you.
N.B: I got 10 out of 10.
* I beg your pardon: two prepositions
In North America, we usually use “I’m at the university.”, to say we are at the physical place. For example:
Where is John now?
He’s at the university.
But if you want to say that he is a student of the university, then you should say, ” He’s in university”. For example:
What’s your son doing these days?
He’s in university.
Hope this helps! Thanks for your feedback and all the best to you, Briklend.
I got 10 to 10. thanks Rebecca
Thank you very much!
Thank you Rebecca. It is such a useful lesson.

Thanks mam, which very helpful for my exams.
I’ve scored 1o out of 10. Thanks to your productive lesson, it helped me to understand a lot more in these, and help indicated me to see the mistakes I may make when using the language.
Also it would be really grateful if I could able to find more of these irregulars, singular, plural and unchanging nouns.
Do you have have an ideas for me to look up on the website or could you help me more about this sections.
However I am very much appreciated in your effort of teaching and all your crew.
You would need to google the topic – there are several websites which could give you further info. Thanks for your feedback and all the best to you.
Thanks so much for your suggestion. I will search more topics on google.
Rebeca, thank you for you helping about that lesson!
Thank you Rebecca! I got 10/10

Hi Rebecca, thanks for clearing up the confusions I had all the while. May I know which one is correct for the below?
There is/are a lot of news about John.
thank you rebbeaca :))
thanks you rebecca!
Hi Rebecca! You wrote in your “Spelling of Plural Nouns in English” that “news” is “a plural noun having no singular forms”. But at this lesson you said that “the news” is a singular noun. I am slightly confused. What is the correct definition? And how should I say “1 news,2 news etc?”
Hi, thank you very much! I was very easy.
Wow Rebecca definitely you was right,no matter when you made this amazing class i just want to give my thanks because as you said, i have learned something important in my writing and reading skills in just a few minutes, i had ideas about irregular plural nouns but certainly i did not know about the last two. When i used to watch them on television or when i was reading something from a website i thought they were plural when actually they were singular or both. Thanks again my dear professor.
Regards and hugs from Venezuela.
Wow! This lesson helps me a lot!
100% thank you
Great lesson!Thank you
Now Onwards you are my favorite teacher…..thank you teacher
Great!! It’s really informative and easily understandable, I’ve one question on what you taught about Irregular unchanging nouns and for the word ‘fish’ for instance “The fishes are very beautiful” and ” Those fishes are very colorful”. Can we use this word FISHES instead of FISH ? Please correct me if my understanding is wrong…
You got 10 correct out of 10.

It is a very useful lesson.
How do I identify a irregular singular noun when they’re so similar to some plural nouns? In the examples were listed only some nouns related to academic subjects.
Rebecca! You have a gift of simplifying grammar and making learning fun!
I had seen the rule before but I did see my first time relating the unchanging plural my first time I really enjoy being able to get better my skill in English.i have a couple of hours by using the platform I have been able to learn much unknown grammar and adjectives plural.
Thanks Rebecca! You explain very good!
