Dear class,

How are you? How are you dealing with the quarantine? What are you doing at home? What series are you binge-watching? What books are you reading? What are your favorite activities to do at home? How is your routine?  

Task 1: Write a short paragraph (50 words) telling me about your quarentine routine. Let's share ideas, stay in and take care of each other!

We are working on our review unit so let's practice Comparative Adjectives a little bit.


We use comparative adjectives to show change or make comparisons:
  • This computer is certainly better, but it's much more expensive. 
  • I'm feeling happier now that I have some pizza.
  • We need a bigger pizza.
We use than when we want to compare one thing with another:
  • My sister is two years older than me.
  • Santiago is much bigger than Rancagua. 
  • She is a better player than Patrick. 
  • Brazil is a bigger country than England.  

How to form comparative and superlative adjectives

1. We usually add –er to one-syllable words to make comparatives
 old - older
 long - longer
2. If an adjective ends in –e, we add –r:
nice       nicer     
large      larger   

3. If an adjective ends in a vowel and a consonant, we double the consonant:
big          bigger  
fat          fatter                   

4. If an adjective ends in a consonant and –y, we change –y to –i and add –er:
happy   happier               
silly        sillier    

5. We use more to make comparatives for most two syllable adjectives and for all adjectives with three or more syllables:
careful           more careful    
interesting           more interesting            

6. The adjectives good, bad and far have irregular comparatives:
good      better 
bad        worse   
far          farther/further                     

Watch this video with the explanation and more examples

Task 2: Make five sentences comparing something new you have versus something old you had. For example:

1. My new phone is faster than my old phone. 
2.  My new bed is bigger than my old bed.
3. ...

Leave task 1 and 2 in the comments (with your name) or send them to my email.Do this by friday.

Stay in, wash your hands, take care of each other <3
