This course will first introduce you to countable and uncountable nouns. Countable nouns refer to something that can be counted such as 'key' and have both singular and plural forms. You will learn that the article 'a' or 'an' precedes their singular form such as 'a key'. Uncountable nouns are not typically counted and usually do not have a plural form, although there are exceptions. You will learn that uncountable nouns are not preceded by 'a' or 'an'.
You will then learn how to use 'few' and 'many' with plural countable nouns as well as 'little' and 'much' with uncountable nouns. As you go further, you will study the rules on using the articles 'a' and 'an', which you will find easy as long as you know your English vowels and consonants. The course will also teach you how to use the article 'a' to specify how much and how often, as well as the rules for the article 'the'.
The grammar rules on articles and nouns are some of the easiest but most important to learn in the English language, which is why you will find the lessons in this course really rewarding. This intermediate level grammar course is also designed to improve your English reading comprehension and listening skills, and to make your learning journey really enjoyable.
