Learn Grammar with us Few and little
We use a few with plural, countable nouns. For example, "A few people came to the party." We use a little with uncountable nouns. For example, "There's a little coffee left, if you would like some." We can also use few and little (without "a") to mean very few or very little (i.e. much less in quantity). For example, "There's little point in calling" (= there's not much point calling). "There were few people at the concert." "A few" is more in quantity than "few"; and "a little" is more in quantity than "little". "Few people understand" (not many people understand), compared to "a few people understand" (some people understand). In spoken English, we can also say not many, or only a few to mean "few" and only a little or not much to mean "little". "Not many people came to the party." Or "Only a few people came to the party." "There was only a little petrol left in the car." Or "There wasn't much petrol left in the car."

Leave Someone High and Dry Say, Jill. I thought that John was going to help you do the dishes tonight. So did I. But he left me high and dry. Where did he go ? Well, he got a call from some of his pals at work to go bowling, and he left me alone to do all this work without any help at all!
