    Exclamation A lot / very much

    Good morning teachers and experts...

    Please, can you tell me if I can use "a lot" and "very much" in the same way??? Both are adverbs to intensify, aren't they?

    Example: He studies a lot / very much.
    She works a lot / very much.

    Thank you very much!

    Default Re: A lot / very much

    Yep, though 'a lot' is not used much in formal language.
