|Learn the difference between "much" and "many" with this English grammar lesson.
We use many when asking about quantity with countable nouns with the expression "how many". Example: How many apples are there?
We use how much for asking about quantity with uncountable nouns. Example: How much milk is there?
We also use many in negative sentences with countable nouns to describe a small quantity or amount. Example: "There aren’t many apples."
For describing a small quantity with uncountable nouns, then we use much in the negative, for example "there isn’t much wine."
For positive sentences to express a large quantity, we do NOT use much or many. We prefer "a lot of" or "lots of". For example "There are a lot of oranges" and "there is a lot of milk.
At the end of the English lesson, there are some grammar exercises to test your understanding.
The accent is a British English accent and there are subtitles / closed captions during the whole video lesson.
