Student or Learner
Normally, there's refers to one item, though, I've heard something like: There's a lot of cars......
Is it correct?
I'd appreciate native speakers' help!
It is ok if it links to the singular noun "lot".
"There's a lot/bunch/gathering of students in the cafeteria." ..is correct.
"There are a lot/bunch/gathering of students in the cafeteria." ..is not correct.
You could say.. "There are many students in the cafeteria."
Or simply.. "There are students in the cafeteria."
Or even.. "There are lots/bunches/gatherings of students in the cafeteria."
There remains one more question. Can uncountable nouns like information, time, money etc. used with "a lot of" and "lots of"? Is it correct to say:
You can gain a lot of/lots of information via the Internet.
The team has spent a lot of/lots of money on new players?
