Spanish Grammar: Quantifiers “mucho, poco, todo…” (A1)

Spanish quantifiers: mucho, poco, todo

Words that indicate quantity are a common type of indefinite adjectives or quantifiers. They answer the question “How many?”

The following overview is based on the adjectives mucho, poco, and todo. It illustrates how the form of an adjective always corresponds to the noun it matches. Apply the concept of number as your first step. The singular form of an adjective is used with the singular form of a noun and the plural form of an adjective with a plural noun. Apply the concept of gender next. Use the masculine form of an adjective with a masculine noun and the feminine form with a feminine noun.
