a piece of Spanish

Today I was on the bus thinking about something:

  • There are three pieces of furniture
  • I used three pieces of chalk
  • I would like three pieces of toast

But you can’t say:

  • Three furnitures
  • Three chalks
  • Three toasts

But in Spanish, you can. (Tres muebles, tres tizas, tres tostadas).

And that was my bus ride to school in a nutshell.
