Uncountable English Nouns | Fix Common Grammar Mistakes & Errors





So many of YOUR English mistakes are related to the way that you use nouns! In this free video lesson, we are going to improve your use of English nouns!

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)
- much/many
- some/any
- a little/a few
- so/such

Learning and understanding how countable and uncountable nouns are used differently in English will DRAMATICALLY improve your grammar!

I've made a worksheet that you can download so you can practice what you learn in this lesson.

This video, we’ll focus on uncountable nouns. You can check out EMMA's lesson on countable nouns right here: https://youtu.be/XWkRGtCd3eY

What you need to know about uncountable nouns:
Uncountable nouns are difficult to count! All of these nouns are uncountable:
- Liquids (water, milk, wine)
- Powders (flour, coffee, sugar)
- gases (air)
- electricity, money, music...
- abstract nouns (like happiness, motivation and luck)

Uncountable nouns have only one form - they cannot be plural.

You can’t use 'a' or 'an' with uncountable nouns because they are used with singular nouns (one) - and uncountable nouns can’t be counted!
You can’t use numbers with uncountable nouns!

You can use ‘some’ with uncountable nouns - because we use it to say there is an amount, but not a specific amount.

But you can also use uncountable nouns WITHOUT ‘some’: Can you get rice from the supermarket? When it’s not important to say how much!

Watch the video lesson to learn how you can quantify uncountable nouns.
