- Common nouns (teacher, students, school...)
- Proper nouns (Rachel, Mohammed, Maryland English Institute...)
Example: Students and teachers come to school.
Always capitalize proper nouns!
Example: Rachel and Mohammed are at the Maryland English Institute.
There are 2 kinds of common nouns:
- Count nouns (sandwich, book, song...)
- Non-count nouns (meat, paper, music...)
Non-count nouns have only 1 form. You can't count them. (WRONG: 1 meat, 2 musics...)
Study the vocabulary on pages 66-67 of the Oxford Picture Dictionary (OPD).
Count Nouns: egg/eggs, vegetable/vegetables, grocery bag/bags, shopping list/lists, coupon/coupons
Non-count nouns: fish, meat, chicken, milk, butter, fruit, rice, bread, pasta
