  • Good day, my dear friend Bill. I hope you still remember me. I´m Oscar, an English teacher from Colombia. I imagine I sent you my last letter about 3 years ago, or even more; but I never forgot you. You´ve been not only the most excellent teacher for me, but almost an old best friend. I just read you´re retiring and you would probably not answer these letters. I hope you will answer this one. First of all, let me share with you a personal achievement I got: I´m a lawyer !!! I finally finished my university classes and got my professional title. That was in december, but I´m still an English teacher because I just can´t be ungrateful with the job that has given me money for food and prosperity. I´m trying to work both as a lawyer and as a teacher, too.
    Ok, now let me congratulate you and your family for that new member, Miles. I can see he´s a very special boy and he will be your new best friend, Bill.
    Now, let me tell you that I have a short question for you about english grammar. Right in this moment I´m teaching the use of "some, any, many, much a lot of, a little and a few". The doubts I have are the following:

    Someone says to a friend:

    "Hey, can you lend me some money? I need to buy a pencil."

    The guy who has to answer that question his out of money, so how should he answer?

    "Sorry. I don´t have any dollar in my pockets"

    "Sorry. I don´t have any dollars in my pockets"

    What if he wanted to use "There + be" :

    "Sorry. There isn´t any dollar in my pockets"

    "Sorry. There aren´t any dollars in my pockets"

    I taught my pupils that "any" can be used with either singular or plural nouns:

    "There is not any water in the glass"

    "There are not any glasses on the table"

    But my doubt is when you want to say that there is not even one dollar in your pockets. Should I use "any dollar" or "any dollars"?

    The other question is about using "a lot of" with singular and plural nouns. "a" means "one", then is it ok when I say "There are a lot of students in that classroom" ? Should I say: "There are lots of students in that classroom" ? Are they both correct? Is there any difference between them?

    I´d really appreciate your wise answer, my friend Bill. Bill the English teacher and Bill the Papa chulo, he he he. God bless you and your family.
