hi my name is Emma and today's lesson is on a very very common grammar and

0:09

vocabulary mistake

0:10

so this is a mistake that both ESL students and native English speakers

0:15

make so we are going to look at the words a lot a lot a lot and lots and

0:25

also one more

0:26

that's not in the title a whole lot ok so i hope you get a whole lot from this

0:30

lesson

0:31

so let's begin I'm so first we're going to cover the word a lot and notice that

0:36

all of these words have the same pronunciation

0:41

I just different spelling so a lot a lot is the same thing as a large number of

0:48

it can mean many much so it just means a big number

0:55

it can also mean often but we'll get to that in a second

0:59

let's look at the first sentence i have furniture

1:05

so if i have a large number of furniture

1:10

great a lot i have a lot

1:15

furniture is this correct

1:18

there's something I'm missing oh now this is one of the major mistakes

1:25

ESL students make they always forget the of with a lot so when you have a noun

1:31

like furniture or books you need this

1:34

so remember a lot of something

1:37

ok now the word furniture is what is called an uncountable noun

1:44

so this means we never have an S at the end of furniture

1:48

it's never

1:50

miniatures it's always furniture whether you have a lot or a little

1:55

it's always furniture so it whereas book is a countable noun

2:04

you look we have an s on any time we use a lot

2:10

we need to pluralize if it's a countable mountain so we have other videos on non

2:15

count and count nouns which you can watch if this confuses you

2:19

but the main point is that if you're using a non-count noun

2:24

you don't need an S with a lot of if it's a countdown

2:28

you do need an S ok so I have a lot of books i have a lot of furniture

2:34

I have a lot of friends I have a lot of cats so it just means a big number

2:39

now the second way we use a lot is after a verb

2:44

so in this case we are describing the verb to have a sentence I swim a lot

2:51

this just means i swim often so in this case the word a lot really just means

2:57

often i read often

3:00

I drink tea often i paint

3:04

well not often but i would like to paint more so I'd like to paint often i'd like

3:08

to paint a lot

3:09

so one thing that you can also do is we have the word here a lot a whole lot and

3:17

lots

3:18

how do these words come into our whole equation

3:23

let's first start with a lot now in this case a lot

3:27

it might look like this but in this case t
