Welcome to today’s lesson. We’re going to talk about comparative and superlative. So let’s get into work.
- We use comparative adjectives to compare two things or people.
- We add -er to short adjectives and the word “more” to long adjectives.
We form comparatives as follows.
short adjective comparative
long adjective comparative
difficult more difficult
interesting more interesting
important more important
We use the word “than” when comparing to other things or people.
My sister is older than me.
Your car is more expensive than mine.
We use superlative to say that something or somebody is supreme or outstanding.
We add the + -est to short adjectives and the words “the most” to long adjectives.
SHORT ADJECTIVE SUPERLATIVE
old the oldest
big the biggest
new the newest
LONG ADJECTIVE SUPERLATIVE
understandable the most understandable
incredible the most incredible

e.g This is the most beautiful landscape I’ve ever seen.
Well, that’s all by now. Practice and enjoy studing grammar. See you next lesson.
