#### Slide 4 -Drag question

Much, many, a lot of (lots of)
We use much, many and a lot of to talk about a large amount; we don't know the exact amount.
• Uncountable noun > much or a lot of
• Countable noun > many  or a lot of

We use a lot of (lots of) in positive and negative sentences and questions

! We can use these words without a noun, when it is clear what we are talking about
Example: I've got some money with me but not much
! Much and many in positive sentences are formal. A lot of or lots of is more informal

(a) little, (a) few
• We use (a) little instead of some to talk about a small amount. (= uncountable noun)
