There is / there are Some ,any + plural e.g there are some pictures in our room There aren't any pictures in our room what about toilets How can I say toilets with [positive][negative]

  • Isn't it unusual to use plural with toilet, and to use "in our room"? Usually you would (in a hotel) have one toilet with your room - but not in your room. But maybe I don't understand the context. – Stefan Nov 26 '15 at 17:42
  • In general I mean Let me give you for example There are some toilets in our school Is this sentence correct? – Mrs.Pero Nov 26 '15 at 19:40
  • Yes, that is correct. You should accept the answer below. – Stefan Nov 26 '15 at 20:53

Just in the same way:

There is a toilet

There are toilets

There are some toilets

There aren't any toilets

There are no toilets

All are valid

Edit: Re the OP's comment, both of the following are valid:

There are some toilets in our school

There are toilets in our school

The latter would be the more common usage in my experience, but there is no real difference in meaning.
