    Re: alot, a lot and lots of...what is difference?

    We don't usually write 'alot' as one word. So 'a lot' and 'lots of' it's all the same! You can say 'loads' too

    It is incorrect to write alot as one word.

    '. . .a lot of' and 'lots of' mean the same.

    Dive into English, please state that you are not a teacher.
