Quantifiers Revision. Manic Miner.

Let's revise quantifiers before you try the Manic Miner game.

We use a and an for singular countable nouns.
We use the when those nouns are specific.
We use some and any for uncountable nouns or for plural nouns. Remember some is mostly used in affirmative sentences whereas any is used in negations and questions.
We use how many and a few for countable nouns, and we use how much and a little for uncountable nouns.
A lot of is used for countable and uncountable nouns, mostly in affirmative sentences.

Countable, Uncountable. How much? How many?

Is it difficult to tell countable from uncountable nouns? Unfortunately, there are no hard and fast rules for that, and we have to know by heart which nouns are countable or uncountable. But you know, practice makes perfect, so let's get to work! Play the first game. Move the spider with the arrow keys to get the matching answer: Which nouns are countable? Which are uncountable? Which can be both? By the way, watch out! There are distractors! Then, have a look at the cards and think: Do you have to complete the sentences with how much or how many? Click where indicated to flip the card and find out.
