Last time, we learned about countable and uncountable nouns. And we use quantifiers, such as 'much', 'many', 'a lot of', 'a little', and 'a few' with nouns. Quantifiers tell us the number or amount of a noun. We use the quantifier "much" with uncountable nouns. "Much" means a large amount. We only use 'much' in questions and in negative sentences. For example: Is there much rain in summer? No, there's not much rain and summer. We also use "a little" with uncountable nouns. "A little" means a small amount. For example: There is a little water in the bottle. We use the quantifiers "many" and "a few" with plural countable nouns. "Many" means a large number. For example: There are many palm trees on the island. "A few" means a small number. There are a few birds outside. We use the quantifier "a lot of" with both uncountable and countable nouns. "A lot of" means a large amount or number. There is a lot of rain in spring. There are a lot of cars on the highway. Let's take a quick tour of some places in the U.S. and use quantifiers to describe what we see. Our first stop is New York City. Here, there are many tall buildings and cars. There's also a little grass and nature. Is there much snow in Alaska? Yes, there's a lot of snow in Alaska. In California, there are a lot of palm trees. On this beach, there are a few birds. Now, it's your turn. Click pause and choose the correct quantifiers in these sentences. Task of the week! Describe the landscape of your country using quantifiers. Next time, we will learn about the difference between adjectives and adverbs. This is American English. Thank you for watching.
