    Dear Teachers,
    Please, explain the difference between 'too much' and 'much too'. Examples of the both?

    Re: Usage

    Much too comes before an adverb or adjective.

    That's much too expensive for me to buy. You speak much too quickly for me to understand.

    Too much comes before a noun and indicates an excess.

    There's too much work to do in a day. I tried to cram too much stuff into my suitcase and broke the lock.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
