Adjetivos terminados em -ed e -ing

In the video Luol said he was 'soexcited' – he used the –ed adjective.

"I'm so excited for the 2012 Olympics."

To talk about how we feel about someone or something we can use the –ed adjective.

Example: He was so excited that he couldn't sleep last night.

To talk about how someone or something made us feel we can use the –ing adjective.

Example: That film was very exciting.

Now complete the sentences with the correct form of the adjective.

1. The speech that my boss made was very ________. (surprised / surprising)

2. I am very ________ in science. (interested / interesting)

3. He has had a long day. He is very ________. (tired / tiring)

4. Horse riding is a very ________ sport. (excited / exciting)

Adjetivos e comparações

In the video Luol used the comparative adjective bigger.

"… for the Olympics to be in my hometown it just doesn’t get any bigger than that"

One way to compare two things is to add –er to the adjective.

Example: This shop is cheaper than the big supermarket down the road.

Exceptions

If the adjective ends in –y we usually change this to –ier.

Example: This towel is drier than the one in the bathroom.

If the adjective is very short we sometimes double the last consonant and then add –er.

Example: Sally is bigger than Claire.

If the adjective is long we add the word 'more' before the adjective.

Example: Is your watch more expensive than Phil's one?

Now complete the sentences with the correct form of the comparative adjective.

1. A mouse is much ________ than a cat. (small)

2. The weather is ________ in Spain than it is in the UK. (hot)
