    make a lot progress/ make a lot of progress

    Hello.

    What is the difference between sentence 1 and 2 concerning meaning, formality etc.?

    1-"I am sure he will make a lot progress if he is given this opportunity"
    2-"I am sure he will make a lot of progress if he is given this opportunity"

    Thanks

    Re: make a lot progress/ make a lot of progress

    2 would be grammatically correct if you end it with a full stop.

    You cannot omit 'of'.
