Is the description of “Less/fewer” correct?
>> Less is used with UNCOUNTABLE nouns
>> Fewer is used with COUNTABLE nouns
Thanks for your question, Veronika. The short answer is yes 🙂 I’ve added some examples below. If you are not sure, we can speak about it in our next session
Less is used with countable nouns e.g. time, money, water, information:
I have less time than yesterday. (= Yesterday I had more time than today)
Fewer is used with uncountable nouns e.g. opportunities, books, chairs:
I have fewer opportunities in my new job than in my old one. (= I had more opportunities in my old job than in my new one.)
Thank you for your answer, Andy.
Then unfortunately the description “Less/fewer” above is wrong.
