In this English grammar tutorial for people starting to learn English, teacher Stuart explains all you need to know about countable nouns uncountable nouns, and how we use ‘some’ and ‘any’.
Basically, countable nouns are things we can count – apple, orange, knife, fork, ball, bat. Therefore, we can say one apple, one orange, two knives, three forks, etc.
Uncountable nouns are nouns we can NOT count – beer, milk, sand, chocolate. We can’t say one sand or two sands. With uncountable nouns we usually use ‘some’, so we say ‘some sand’. Or, we can say a grain of sand, a can of beer, a carton of milk, etc.
