There are two types of nouns – countable and uncountable. Knowing the difference between them and how you can use these types of nouns is really important. It affects how you use:
– articles (a/an/the)
– a little/a few

What you need to know about countable nouns:
Some nouns are ‘countable’ – very simply, you can count them!
We can say there are three, five or ten of these nouns.
Countable nouns have singular and plural forms.
For example: one lemon (singular), three lemons (plural)
You can use the articles ‘a’ and ‘an’, with the singular form of the noun: a glass, an apple, a banana…
What about plural countable nouns?
When you have a plural countable noun, you can use the number to say how many. Or you can use ‘some’ (when you don’t want to be specific about how many)
You can say: some red chillies, some potatoes, two forks and three zucchinis!
Most English nouns are countable nouns. Other examples include: day, week, hour, minute, dollar, task, story, job, coin, accident and appointment.
– can be singular or plural.
– use a/an when using the singular form
– Use some when plural, but you don’t want to be specific
– Use the number to be specific!
