This is David. I thought maybe some people would be interested to know what I did before coming to Japan.
What is rhubarb? Most Japanese people have probably never heard of it, let alone seen it. Rhubarb is a vegetable with thick red stalks and big green leaves. Unlike most other vegetables, you won't see rhubarb tossed into a salad, stir fried, or added to a soup. It is most often used in dessert recipes and has a sour taste, which is almost always sweetened with sugar.
A little and a few are quantifiers that mean "some".
Little and few have negative meanings. We use them to mean "not as much as we wished for or expected"
We use a little with uncountable nouns and a few with plural countable nouns
We use little with uncountable nouns. We use few with plural countable nouns.
I hope this helps you all out!
