    there are much more opportunities ...

    "there are much more opportunities"
    Does this sentence sound okay to you?
    I've been told that this is incorrect but I've searched the Web and actually found out that this kind of structure is very often used by native speakers...
    English is damn hard, isn't it?
    Thanks in advance for your replies

    Indeed, saying much more opportunities is not as good as saying far more opportunities.
