most | enough | plenty of + NOUN

B1 Point 43 in the category of DETERMINERS is defined as:

increasing range of quantifying determiners with both plural nouns and uncountable nouns (‘most’, ‘enough’, ‘plenty of’, ‘loads of’).

*This overlaps another B1 point.


PELIC WRITING CLASS EXAMPLES:

Most students eat lunch and dinner in a cafeteria.

Korean, Female, Level 3

 

In addition, the people who lived in Korea 100 years ago didn’t have enough transportation.

Korean, Male, Level 3

 

*Note that ‘loads of’ is C1 if it is used as hyperbole:

PELIC READING CLASS:

If the teachers always assign loads of homework for kids to practice,

the students may only focus on the skills which they learned from the subject.

TLC SPEAKING TEST EXAMPLE:

I love this city. It has plenty of job opportunities and a beautiful landscape.

Female, Italy, B1

EXPERT EXAMPLE:

It’s like music;

maybe it’s helpful to know some theory and to be able to name the notes as they sound,

but there are plenty of fine musicians who play by ear.
