Countable Nouns

Countable nouns are things which can be counted. That means that when there is more than one of them, you need to add 's'. Also, when a countable noun is singular an article (a/an/the) is often used with it.
e.g. There are too many factories.

Non-Countable Nouns

Non-Countable Nouns are usually things which cannot be counted, such as rice or water. Non-countable nouns only have a singular form, but we either use the word "some" or nothing at all instead of an article.
e.g. There is too much smoke.
