Bonjour Doraida ! Here the distinction is about whether to use "un peu de" (uncountable) versus "peu de" (countable): you will need the "de" in both cases. I hope that's helpful! À bientôt !
Thank you I think I understand now
Aurélie, I recommend making the distinction between "a few friends" translated as "quelques" and "few friends" translated as "peu de" clearer in this lesson. As wriiten in the lesson, the usage of quelques and peu de appears to depend on countable and uncountable things. quelques (plural)

[un] peu de 

Used with uncountable quantities, un peu de means a little, a bit of
