English Lesson “Some” Vs. “Any”

Michael Uncategorized 1 Comment



I have some old records in my garage. Since we are in the digital music age, it may seem like I don’t have any need for them, but I do. Some of them are pretty old, and rare. I don’t think any of them are damaged or broken. Do you have any records in your house?

Today we will look at some and any. Do you know how to use these words? Take a look at the paragraph above and then check out today’s lesson:

Some is generally used for positive statements, like this:

  • I have some old records in my garage.
  • There are some peaches in the fridge. Why don’t you try one.

Any is generally used in negative statements and questions, like this:

  • I don’t have any need for them.
  • Bob couldn’t find any records in his attic.
  • Do you have any records in your house?

We can use some in a question when we expect a “yes” answer, or want to encourage someone to say yes:

  • Would you like some coffee?
  • Can you get me some candy from the kitchen?

Well, I don’t think I have any more time for this topic. I hope you get some use out of this lesson!
