Free Download - Some & Any

The words 'some' and 'any' are what we call Determiners.  We use these words before nouns in order to add meaning. Some examples of other Determiners are: much, many, every, each and both. 'Some' and 'any' give us an indication about the amount of something.  These two little words - some and any - are often confused with each other but there are some important differences between them.

In this free downloadable resource, you can read about the difference between some and any, the situations in which we use each one and some examples.
