Uncountable nouns are often difficult for people learning English.
So...what are they?
They are nouns that only have one form (you do not add an 's' if there are more than one.)
You use them with words like 'some', 'a lot', 'any'
You do not use them with a or an.
As they are treated as singular nouns, you use them with 'is' rather than 'are'. For example, 'this is...'
Below is a list of some common uncountable nouns. If you find them difficult to remember, just download the audio and keep listening to it.
