    quantifiers wriying mistakes

    hi for example, do you know if there is a page i can recomend my students to check for grammar mistakes like quantifiers use:

    in the sentence:
    i think the soup needs a few salt. It doesn't have much taste.

    what the mistakes are in the use of quantifiers???

    I think the soup needs a little salt. It doesn't have much taste.

    Use 'a few' for countable nouns and 'a little' for uncountable nouns.
