Types of Nouns in English - ESL / ELA Charts

ESL / ELA Grammar Charts about the eight main type of nouns in English - Common Nouns, Proper Nouns, Countable Nouns, Uncountable Nouns, Concrete Nouns, Abstract Nouns, Compound Nouns and Collective Nouns.

Includes bonus summary chart with the 8 noun types in a single chart.

Also included is a chart using the noun Toothbrush to show that nouns can be more than one type of noun. Toothbrush can be a common noun, a concrete noun, a countable noun, and a compound noun.

These charts are ideal for putting on the classroom wall or could also be made into booklets for students to use as a reference guide.

I have created a video on YouTube about this topic: Types of Nouns in English - Grammar Lesson (Suitable for the classroom). You can watch this free video to have a better idea of the contents of these charts and even use it in the classroom if wish.
