There are countable and uncountable nouns in English.

Countable nouns:

Most of the nouns are countable. You can combine them with numbers, e.g one, two or three. Here is an example:

one pencil
two pencils
three pencils
etc.


Uncountable nouns:

These nouns can't be combined with numbers. Here is an example:

water

If you want to express a quantity, you have to use a special phrase e.g. a glass of water.

NOTE:
Some nouns can be either countable or uncountable. We recommend to use a good dictionary. Here is an example: hair - hairs

You have some hairs on your T-shirt. (There might be 5 or 6 of them.)
Your hair looks lovely. (Here you think of the hairstyle.)
