    a lot - very much

    My daughter wrote:
    "I like Wednesdays very much" but her teacher crossed it out and wrote "a lot" ...
    To be honest, I don't understand that. Is this a BE AE thing?
    The Longman Lexicon of Contemporary English says "a lot" is informal

    Thanks for your comments
