    there is no changes

    Hi Teachers,
    You are a Servicedesk Agent at a company. A user calls in and wants to have their password changed. Due to technical issues, you have to reset the password using the user's current one.
    You say, "I will reset your password using your current one. So there is no changes. You password will be the same as your old one"

    Is the sentence "So there is no changes." used correctly?


    Thanks so much.

    No, it should be "There are no changes." However, "There's no changes" is acceptable in spoken English - not "There is no changes,"
    "There's three men here to see you." It's strictly wrong according to traditional grammar, but it's right because we (almost) all do it.

    Use there is no change or there are no changes here.
