Thank you for your lesson.

    Hello there. I have read in a grammar book I purchased that subjunctive mood should be used in condition of uncertainty. Example. If she have the money, she will make it in the city.

    I used to use has for the third person. I would like to clarify this, because there are some English novels which use has instead of have. :)

    Thank you Rebecca

Thanks Rebecca
very good lesson
WHY (some)is incorrect for the fist question?!!!
please review it

brala

    Some is correct in the first question. You had to choose the answer that was incorrect. Always be careful what the question asks you. All the best!

    Rebecca

      Yeah, you’re right! Sometimes we do not even read the instructions and just go through the quiz, and this is what happens.
      As simple as that!!!

      Thanks for this interested video-lesson

      Regards

      Regino

        Corrections:

        . . . and this was what happened.

        . . . Thanks for this interesting video-lesson.

        We all make mistakes from time to time, right?

        Have a great week Rebecca!!!

        Regino

      I did not read the first question carefully and got it wrong :( I thought it was asking… Which of the following is CORRECT?

      verin

      Thank you, next time i will be more careful

Hi, Rebecca
tell me, please, why advice is uncountable noun?
I think, we can say “He gave me too many advices”
even if you mean an opinion by this word, we still can count them – “one opinion, two opinions”

give me the answer, please :)

growman

    What if we’re not sure if a noun is countable or uncountable? For example “information”. I saw “an information” or “informations”, and sometimes I get confused, maybe not because of the word “information” because I know that it is uncountable, but how actually native speakers treat this kind of situation, when they don’t know if a noun is count or non-count? Or, how does it sound, when we say for instance “an information” or “informations”.

    I’m just curious, I’m not saying that I want to speak that way, I just want to know how native people react when someone pluralize non-count nouns. :)

    morfik

      When you make this kind of mistake when speaking to a native speaker, it is understood that you have not mastered the language. In some cases, it may not matter, like social situations. In other cases, like a job interview, it may be problematic if they are looking for someone who speaks English well. So try your best to learn as much as you can. English speakers learn this point automatically as they grow up with the language. My best wishes to you.

      Rebecca

    I know it is confusing to remember why one noun is uncountable and another is uncountable, aside from realizing that we can count some things. You cannot think about it too much, especially when it comes to the uncountable nouns. You just have to accept that they are used that way. That is why I made a resource on the subject to help students – you can find it in the resources section of our site. You cannot say ‘many advices”, but you can say “many pieces of advice”. All the best to you with your English!

    Rebecca

Thank you Rebecca for all you efforts .

momen22

Yes, sometimes it’s hard to guess, if the noun is countable or not. Who would expect that “fruit” is uncountable and “vegetable’ is countable? They should be in the same category.

swierszczowa1

    I use, “fruit” for one, and “fruits” for many. I know that I should use “fruits” when I deal with different kinds or something, but I really don’t see any difference. Why should I say “fruit” when I have many fruits. xD The same with “fish” and “fishes”, how do I know if there are different types of them, “There are fishes!” xD

    morfik

      For that matter of fact, about fish and fishes, shrimp and shrimps . Methinks it`s okay
      I get it, the bizarre thing it about “person” “persons” ,”people” “peoples”
      I know that the plural form of person it people,nevertheless I figure out that it could used with “S”
      in this way : ^persons^ merely in formal documents and situations.
      e.g. All persons born in India are citizens of India .
      ^peoples^ when it means race or nation owing to it`s countable in this sense .
      e.g. African peoples . ^_^

      hisham77

Hi Rebecca. i red onec that advice could be cauntable. we can change c to s an d so es. is it wright?

best wishes.

Ahmed

ahmed69

    Advice is always uncountable. You are given a lot of advice or a piece of advice.

    Advise with an s is a verb. So you’d say “he gave me some good advice” or “he advised me to do xyz”

    Sofia

      thank u for the replay

      ahmed69

      Yes, Ahmed, Sofia is right. Thanks Sophia. My best to both of you.

      Rebecca

Hi Rebecca
Wouldn’t it be right to say “a little pizza” when we are refering to a small pizza?
And if pizza is a countable noun, why it’s not written “pizzas”?
I’m looking forward your answer
Thank you

Neusa

    You could say: We ordered 8 pizzas for the party.
    It’s fine to use the word in that way. All the best.

    Rebecca

Thank you so much Rebecca .this topic is really clear for me .
I’d just like to ask one question.There are some nouns that end with “s”.
So what if the noun ends with “s” like french fries .I am a bit confused.Is it countable or non countable.Can you give further explanation on this?

tess

    French fry is a countable noun,
    Singular:a french fry
    Plural:french fries

    fatiima8

lposada

Excelentttttttt Its very nice this class

alejandro

Thanks!

When you say in the quiz

Would you like ____ pizza?

You said in the lesson that we can use both for count or non-count nouns using SOME

Is correct to say Would you like some pizza/ or Would you like a few or a little pizza?

:)

gelines2013

    You were asked to choose the answer that is WRONG.
    The only one that is wrong there is ” Would you like a few pizza?”, so that is the correct answer.
    My best to you.

    Rebecca

Wow ! I got 90%. Thank you so much Rebecca.

Angel

Hi, Rebecca.
I’m Spanish, and Spanish people often have very serious problems with uncountable nouns, because our concept of these things.
For exemple, I can say to you “don’t drink a litle of wine a day”, and it’s an advice. And I can say to you “don’t smoke forty cigarettes a day”, and it’s another advice. For a Spanish person, I’ve just given you “two advices”.
For example, maybe five years ago it rained in my city, and then, three years ago it rained again, and yesterday it rained, too. For a Spanish person, it would be correct to talk about “the recent rains”. (There was three rains last week).
You can be watching the news, and you hear an information about the president. Then, you hear another information about the defence minister… For a Spanish person, you’ve heard two informations.
It’s not always so easy… as a Spanish, I have to learn all the uncountable English nouns by heart, there is no criteria I can use.
Thanks for your lessons, your page have the best material I’ve found in the Internet!

ruben

    … litre of wine… (not litle of wine).

    ruben

      …and, of course… there WERE three rains (not was).
      I have to pratise a lot to avoid these kind of errors when I speak and talk “without thinking on it”, it’s obvious…

      ruben

    Hi Ruben!
    Information is uncountable noun. OK?

    sweetlullaby1

      Hi. Yes it’s uncountable .

      Soei

    Thank you. I’m glad you found the resource helpful. Yes, it is always difficult when one’s native language behaves differently from the language we are learning. It requires serious memorization, as you said. Good for you that you are doing what you need to do to master English. My best wishes to you, Ruben.

    Rebecca

Thanks Rebecca for your lesson.
I failed to chose “some pizza” at the first Q.
It is wrong?

Vinh

…and – because of our concept – the of was missing.
Every time I read what I wrote, I find more errors!!!! jajajajajaja. I have to improve a lot!

ruben

    Your english, Ruben, is right. I am catalan and I feel jealous;) Just one thing. English people (like catalana peopole, otherwise), laugh “ha, ha, ha”. See you!

    greenvelvet

Thanks Rebeca, very useful lesson .

libyano

This lesson was really important for us because I always have many doubts about this topic. I agree with libyano, very useful lesson.

Antonio

Thank you Rebeca

gazdy

Rebecca Thanx for the Lesson. Few Chair or Chairs ?

enis

    Hi enis,
    U know,few n a few r determiners n we use them + a plural countable noun.
    e.g. few letters/a few letters
    few desk/a few desks
    few people/a few people
    So,few or a few chairS is right.
    Hope I could help!
    :)

    fatiima8

      Thanks, Fatima. My best to you and Enis.

    Rebecca

    Thus,4 no.1,among the options,we know that we can use a little 4 uncountable nouns n some 4 uncountable nouns n plural countable ones n a few 4 plural countable nouns,n here pizza is singular;don’t u think the question is a bit imprecise????!!!!!

    4give me if I my in4mation is wrong.

    Warm Regards!
    :)

    fatiima8

      The question asks you to choose the answer that is wrong, not the answer that is wrong! Many students did not read the question carefully and got it wrong. One always has to be careful to read the questions properly on tests and that is why we give you such kinds of questions in our quizzes. Hope this helps! All the best, as always, Fatima.

      Rebecca

        I meant :

        The question asks you to choose the answer that is wrong, not the answer that is RIGHT!

        In other words, find the one you cannot say!

        Rebecca

Hi, I did the quiz, but I have a doubt.
The exercise 1 ask for the INCORRET item.
Pizza is a countable noumn right? Then, I should use “few pizza”, in this way, the only incorrect item is “little pizza” (talking about quantity), but at the end is showed the item “a few” like as the correct answer (incorrect form).

Could you explain me please? Thanx… ;)

Rafael

thank you our teacher

zachariasidssi92

      Noted )) Thank you very much!!!

      kenzoll

hello everyone, I wanna talk to you via skype to master the language. Let’s communicate. my skype is garikgarik270

garhakobyan

@fatiima, Thank you for your explanations. But I am kinda confused. You say a few people and few people, according to ‘desk example’, we can say few person, Right? I don’t know. But Thanx in any way. I think there was a lesson on few , a few etc.

enis

    @ Enis: We don’t use “few person” from what I know. I think your “desk example” is incorrect.
    “person” is a singular noun and “people” is a plural noun.

    examples:
    Few people can run 100 meters in under 11 seconds.
    There are a few people who can run 100 meters in under 11 seconds.
    There is one person who has run 100 meters in 9.63 seconds.

    Michael

    Oh…
    4give me!

Thanks Rebecca! The question above about “many advices” is interesting. Why we can’t say so?

kurte

    Because! Don’t try to analyse it too much. Just memorize and move on! All the best to you.

Thank you very much for your lesson.

Pantakan

I’d like to thank you for this lesson. But I also want to ask about something that I saw on X-men cartoon and I didn’t understand what the character meant.
A girl says to her friend: What just happened?
and the boys replies to her: He happened(aiming at Wolverine)…
What I wanna know is what does “He happened” mean?
Because I can see that “he happened” is not the same as in “What just happened?.” The word happen has another meaning…
Thanks

henry19

    Yes, they are using it in an unusual way to try and say that Wolverine is so amazingly powerful that his arrival can be described by saying, “He happened!” It is a very creative, liberal and imaginative use of the language, but then that’s the fun, right? Enjoy learning from cartoons, but accept that sometimes they may use English is untypical ways and sometimes they may just use slang. Great that you are so interested in English. All the best to you.

    Rebecca

Hi Rebeca,
Can u do a lesson about wil be, would be, should be etc. Why after “be” sometimes use words like closed (e.g.: will be closed). sometimes use gerund form (eg: will be doing). Also after “is” and “was” sometimes use past forms( like-shocked, surprised)

pinuccio1971

It’s a awesome lesson.I have some questions about that if I want to show something in the general meaning how I can do. What is the different meaning between plural noun and general meaning of countable noun. For example,_______ can swim for along time., elephant and elephants ,which one should fill in this question. Thank you very much.

nutonug

    You could use either one:

    Elephants can swim…
    or
    An elephant can swim…

    Good question. All the best to you.

    Rebecca

thank you so MUCH rebbeca for your explication

hind

    …for my explanation. You are very welcome. All the best to you.

    Rebecca

Although I got D and I can use words that modify both countable and uncountable nouns, I still have problem in some words labeled with C and U, e.g., pizza noun , u or C . the given samples : a piece of pizza , a lot of different pizza
Can I say : I would like to have a large pizza with seafood and mushroom topping ?
We had better to share these two pizzas .

stupor67

That’s nice. Thanks.

chafiq

tks, Rebecca, with this tricks I think it isn’t possible mistakes, is it ?

sarasampa

    I wish that were true, but of course, mistakes will happen and that’s okay as long as we try our best to improve and never give up! My best wishes to you.

    Rebecca

I dont go along with the sentence number 1 cuz I can say; would you like some pizza? it is used in offers when you expect that people to answer YES:.

Thank you Rebecca

saimaa

Thank you for your lessons!!!

modx

Thanks for you awesome lessons! But why can’t we say “Would you like some pizza?” for the first question?

abuouways

OK Rebecca, I got 90 %. Thanks a lot.

alpido24

Unfortunately, a lot of students made mistakes in the first question on the quiz because they did not read the question carefully enough. You had to choose the one thing you could NOT say, and so the one thing you could not say was, ” Would you like a few pizza?” That was the correct answer. You could certainly say,

Would you like some pizza?
Would you like a little pizza?

Both of these are correct.

Please watch out for these kinds of questions on tests as they are quite common. Also, on the TOEFL exam, they have what are called “negative fact” questions. So that is why many students have asked questions regarding the pizza question. Hope this clarifies all your doubts. My very best wishes to all of you. You are all very brave for learning English!

Rebecca

    Obviously, I made a mistake about the first question. I did’nt read the instruction.

    mamoudouhawa

    You hit the nail on the head!!! Reading instructions especially on tests is of paramount importance.

    So, we’d better get used to it.
    Thanks for this interesting and useful comment.

    All the best to you Rebecca.

    Regino

Thanks a lot, Rebecca. I keep growing with English learning skill having found this site.
Let me know, if I can write “OK, I am glad to know that you are all right”.

shans

Thanks! EngVid rocks!!

sgmmm

Rebecca, thank you so much for your lesson.

The first question in the quiz is confusing.
“Would you like _____________ pizza?”
My answer was “some”.
It was incorrect!!
The correct one is “a few”…
Actually, I’ve never heard someone asks like “Would you like a few pizza?” so I’m a bit confused.

I hope you’d explain it to me.
Thank you

bassamigo

Dear Mam,
In the first question why few is wrong??? Pizza is countable… isn’t it?? and with countable noun pizza few is right . pls clear my confusion..Thank you!!!

rani24

non-count nouns but trying more and more we’ll fix our problems in learning English . my goal is to be fluent in English and teach it to my relatives . i wish u all the best ,my great teacher Rebecca.

tefo

oops ( by trying )

tefo

I have a question about this question: Would you like _____ pizza? Which of the following is incorrect?
The answer should be “a little”, because pizza is countable noun, so in this sentence a few or some both are correct.
Am I right?

jokeryu

    Pizza is uncountable like sugar, milk, water, oil, wine, beer, sand etc. You can say “a piece of pizza” and than it is countable (because piece is countable…)

    L u k a s

      But I don´t what is the correct name for one big piece of pizza. A plate of pizza of wheel of pizza? :-D

irinadiplo

Thanks a lot!
if it is confusing to say much or many than use a lot of instead, it will be correct anyway

I’m in doubt about the noun roast chicken. Is it countable ou non-count noun? Can I ask “How many roast chickens are there in the fridge?” or How much roast chicken is there in the fridge?” Which one is correct?

vivi.vespero

Long time i mistake, i alway use “many informations” :D

Thank you very much, teacher!

lhthao

thank you teacher, that was very important
i would like to ask you, if would you to tell what else uncontable nouns like: information, knowladge, luggage, information, advice, weather, progress, traffic, damage, furniture, homework, research,
equipment, money…or we have just these (irregular uncontable)

Hi Rebecca,
I am quite confused. Why are we using “a few” for Pizza. Isn’t it fine to use “some”.
Would you like some pizza? or
Would you like a few pizza?

Anika.goyal

Thank you Rebecca. Good lessons to understand.

Thank you Rebecca for the trick.
I was taught that singular form of countable noun is used following to “no” or “any” while plural form is used after “some”, “a lot/lots of” or “plenty of”. E.g.: We don’t have any book. There is no chair in the classroom, but there are plenty of them over there.
However in your lesson you gave some examples like: “I don’t have any tables” or “There is no books”. I heard some people use the same like you do. It confuses me.
Please give us a lesson explaining when to use singular or plural form of nouns after some, no, any, none, etc. If such a lesson has already done, please give me a link because I cannot find it. Many thanks and all the best.

Despite that was really so confusing, but I got 10 out of 10 correct again. Thx Rebecca.
I believe that English as any other language, is not about being logical as much as getting used to it.

Hi mam! Hope you are doing good. This video has given me a clear picture about article usage. But I have few doubts too. First of all, food is considered as an uncountable noun, but I knew many people they say that was a good food, that was a good music. Here they use the indefinite article “A” how it is acceptable…pls correct me if I am wrong.

Thanks

i am an ESL teacher and a native ( but bilingual) speaker. I just want to say that i often check your lessons to see HOW to explain things . Things that I know how to do correctly but don’t know why ! In five years no student has ever said ” Oh i watched this lesson last night on Engvid!” Haa haa. BUT I do also, as a thank you- recommend this site ( and you) to every class. :)

Thanks a lot for your lesson.

Oh, I’ve got the first wrong. You had asked for the incorrect one and I’ve checked the only correct option. That shows how we need to pay attention to what is being answered in the questions.
Thanks, Rebecca!
