    Re: hello

    "a little" means some, whereas "little" means very little, probably close to none.

    Example

    I studied a little: meaning I at least put some effort on studying. (positive)
    I studied little: I seldom studied that it's almost as good as nothing. (negative)

    I'm sure others in this forum can provide you with better examples. Let's just wait...
