Hello everyone! I'm Sam from BBC Learning English and today we are going to look at the difference between 'so' and 'such'.

To make an adjective stronger, we use 'so'. For example, Michael is so nice.

We use 'such' when we want to make an adjective plus a noun stronger.  For example, Michael is such a nice person.

For this reason it's correct to say "Michael is so nice person", because we have the adjective (nice) and the noun (person) together.

It's so simple, right?



Function/ఫంక్షన్-పనిచేయు స్థితి

So

We use ‘so’ to make an adjective stronger. It has a similar function to ‘very’.
ఒక విశేషణాన్ని బలోపేతం చెయ్యడానికి 'so' వాడతాం. 'So', 'very'...ఈ రెండూ ఒకలాంటివే!

  • This cake is so delicious!
  • I need to go to bed – I am so tired!

Such

We use ‘such’ to make an adjective stronger when it comes before a noun. If the noun is countable, we need to use an article (‘a’ or ‘an’) after ‘such’.
ఒక నామవాచకానికి ముందు వచ్చే విశేషణాన్ని బలోపేతం చెయ్యడానికి 'such' వాడతాం. ఆ నామవాచకం లెక్కింపదగినది అయితే 'such' తరువాత 'a' గానీ 'an' గానీ వాడాలి.

  • This is such a delicious cake!
  • We ate such good food at the restaurant last night!

Extension

Using ‘such’ + noun (without adjective)

Some nouns, such as ‘bore’ and ‘drag’, are the same as their verb form.

In this case, we can use such + noun to emphasise their qualities.

  • I don’t like studying Biology at school. It’s such a bore! And the lessons are such a drag!
