Lots of, a lot of & a lot

Added by Tomasz H. 9 June 2014 in category: English, Grammar, Learning tips

A lot of, lots of, a lot

The quantifiers lots of, a lot of and a lot are often used interchangeably in English. This time I show you the rules how to use expressions correct.


A lot of / Lots of

They have the same meaning: both mean a large amount or number of people/things. They are both used before countable nouns and uncountable nouns. Both expressions tend to be used in informal English.

We need a lot of people for this game.

We need lots of people for this game.

A lot of rain falls in autumn.

Lots of rain falls in autumn.


A lot

It means very often or very much or great deal. It is used as an adverb. It comes at the end of a sentence & never before a noun.

I like football a lot.

He's a lot happier now than he was.

I enjoy running a lot.

John seems to travel a lot.
