Countable & Uncountable Nouns Test [Intermediate]

Share this test!

English nouns can be either countable or uncountable. Countable ones are for things we can count using numbers. They have both singular and plural forms and can be used with an indefinite article a/an. Uncountable nouns have only a singular form and can't be used with the "a/an" determiner. Usually, they are the names for abstract ideas or qualities or for physical objects that are too small or too amorphous to be counted (liquids, powders, gases, etc.).

Test your knowledge of the countable/uncountable nouns using the questions below.
