  • Hi, I'm Sam from BBC Learning English,

  • and today we're looking at the difference between

  • no, not any and none.

  • Let's have a look.

  • Imagine you ask me this question:

  • Do you have any change?

  • I have zero change,

  • and I can say this in three different ways:

  • Sorry, I have no change.

  • where we use the verb have with no

  • followed by a noun.

  • Sorry, I don't have any change.

  • where we use the negative don't

  • followed by the verb followed by any

  • followed by the noun.

  • Or, I can say:

  • Sorry, none at all

  • where we use none without a verb or a noun,

  • so it's a short answer.

  • So now you shouldn't have any problems with this!

Hi, I'm Sam from BBC Learning English,
