In English we class our nouns into countable and uncountable.
Countable nouns are nouns we can physically count:
Uncountable Nouns are nouns we can’t physically count:

We also use some when we ask for and offer things:

We use any in questions and negative sentences with uncountable and plural nouns:

We use how much with uncountable nouns:
