Use of Some and Any

What to do? What to do?

The use of SOME and ANY is confusing for new English learners.

Here are a few tips to get you on the right track.

SOME We use “some” in positive sentences. We use some for both countable and uncountable nouns. Example: I have some friends.
ANY We use “any” in negative sentences or questions. We use any for both countable and uncountable nouns. Example: Do you have any cheese? – He doesn’t have any friends in Chicago.
EXCEPTION! We use “some” in questions when offering or requesting something that is there. Example: Would you like some bread? (offer) – Could I have some water? (request)
ANY We use “any” in negative sentences or questions. We use any for both countable and uncountable nouns. Example: Do you have any cheese? – He doesn’t have any friends in Chicago.
