Difference Between There Is and There Are

       Some of students may know when they should use “There is” or “There are”. However, some other students may be confused of using both of them. For helping to overcome of some confusing those students, we will post about the difference between the using of “There is” and “There are”. (Also read : Difference Between WILL and GOING TO)

We use “there is” and “there are” to say that something or someone exists.

The choice between the phrases of “there is” and “there are” at the beginning of a sentence is determined by the noun that follows it.

We use “there is” when the noun is singular (“There is a cat”).

And we use “there are” when the noun is plural (“There are two cats”).

You probably know that the choice between “is” or “are” depends on a noun. In most sentences, the noun comes before the verb.

  • A cat is on the bed. Two cats are on the table.
  • A bird is in the cage. Three birds are on the mango tree.

But in sentences that begin with “there is: and “there are”, the noun comes later.
