Student or Learner
Please help me with the following questions. It may sound silly, but i get confused sometimes.
First, which one of these statements is correct and why?
I’d like to buy a coffee/ I’d like to buy a cup of coffee.
Second question, I did not understand the concept of this rule of the use of indefinite article. Please read the following.
"We use indefinite article after 'to be' when we are describing something or someone."
I would like to buy coffee.
I would like to buy a cup of coffee.
I am not sure about your second question. It is not always mandatory that you need to use an indefinite article to describe someone or something.
EX: She is beautiful.
She is a beautiful girl.
