Good (adjective): I did a good job.
Well (adverb): I did well on that test.

Bad (adjective): I have a bad reaction to corn.
Badly (adverb): We played badly in last night’s soccer game.
Real (adjective – opposite of imaginary): A real ladybug flew onto my paper.
Really (adverb – means very): My picture of a ladybug looked really good.

Challenge 5: Adjectives with countable/not countable nouns
Be careful with using adjectives with countable and non-countable nouns.
You can count: books, dollars, cups, etc.
You cannot count: information, money, sugar, etc.
Therefore you might have many books, dollars, and cups, but you would have much information, money, and sugar.
|Countable – (a large number)||Non-Countable – (a large amount)|
|many, more, most, few, fewer, fewest, several||much, more, most, little, less, least, some|
