3 Countable nouns e.g. I eat a banana every day. I like bananas.
“Banana” is a countable noun. We can put an ‘s’ on a countable noun: „Bananas”

4 Countable nouns A countable noun can be 1. singular (banana) or
2. plural (bananas) Countable nouns are things we can count. We can say ‘one banana’ ,‘two bananas’ etc.

8 Uncountable nouns e.g. I eat rice everyday. I like rice.
Rice is an uncountable noun.

9 Uncountable nouns Uncountable nouns are things we can’t count.
An uncountable noun has only one form. (rice) Uncountable nouns are things we can’t count. We can’t put an ‘s’ on an uncountable noun. We can’t say ‘one rice’, ‘two rices’, etc.

10 Examples of uncountable nouns:
 salad dressing  lettuce  ham  water  milk

11 There is/There isn’t There are/There aren’t + some/any

12 There is/ There are some
Study the following table:

13 There is/There are some
We use ‘There is some’ when the noun is uncountable. (meat, cheese.) We use ‘There are some’ when the countable noun is plural. (rulers, pencils.)

14 There isn’t/There aren’t any
Study the following table:

15 There isn’t/There aren’t any
We use ‘There isn’t any’ when the noun is uncountable. (milk, coffee.) We use ‘There aren’t any’ when the countable noun is plural. (dishes, watches)
