Hello dear students. During the last weeks we have been learning how to use adjectives when we want to compare things.
At the bottom of this blog you will find a link to a game about comparatives.
But first, remember that in order to form a comparative adjective, we need to follow the next rules:
One-syllable adjectives adding “er”
Example: My dad is older than me
If the one-syllable adjective ends with “e”. Just add “r”
Example: A ship is larger than a boat
If the one-syllable adjective ends with a consonant and a single vowel before it, you have to double the consonant and add “er”.
Example: A horse is bigger than a cat
Two-syllable adjectives. You have to add “more” before the adjective
beautiful more beautiful
peaceful more peaceful
Example: Our new house is more beautiful than the old one.
Two-syllable adjectives ending with “y”. Change the “y” for an “i” and add “er”.
Two-syllable adjectives ending with: “le” add “r”. Ending with “ow”, add “er.”
This road is narrower than the motorway.
Adjectives with three or more syllables. Add “more” before the adjective.
important more important
intelligent more intelligent
A dolphin is more intelligent than a fish.
Remember there exist some irregular adjectives which are exception to the rules:
