Average: 3.4 (79 votes)

Today's Intermediate level lesson is by Ian who teaches at our English school in Cape Town. When we want to describe the quantity of something (how many things there are), we use certain quantifiers depending on whether the object being describe is a countable noun or an uncountable noun.

We use quantifiers when we don't need to give the exact amount.


"I don't have a lot of money." (I have a small amount of money)

"Can I have some rice with my steak?" (A portion of rice)
