    Post Much and/or Many

    Hello all, I'm new here on the forum and I want to ask a little question.

    First think first, I'm sorry if this thread already exist, when yes please let me know it.

    So if you can see my question is right above between much and/or many and I need it for some sentences and grammar.

    I have a little problem about to learn it correctly. (I don't want that you do my exams, I do it for myself!!!)

    What should I do? Any tips or anything else?

    Okay well, I hope you can help me & by the way, sorry for the poor English, I coming from Germany, that's why I ask here for your help!

    Thanks in advance

    Jens M.

    Re: Much and/or Many

    Welcome to the forum!

    Here is the basic distinction: "Much" is used for things that are not countable. "Many" is for countable things.

    There are many problems here. There is much confusion.

    Re: Much and/or Many

    Oh okay.

    For example: I have many cola bottles; We have much to do...

    Well I think I know what do you mean.

    I will keep learning and thank you for your help!

    Note that the phrase is "First things​ first", not "first think first".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    I wasn't sure if this was a BrE thing, like "you've got another think coming."

    Understandable, but no.
