Solutions for: App 412 / Comparison (Revision) (2)

Let's practise using comparisons in English!
When you want to use an adjective for comparison you need to add an "er" or just "r" if the word already ends with an "e". So "tall" - "taller" OR "simple" - "simpler".
To form a sentence use the word "than". For example: Tom is taller than Mike.
For a few longer adjectives (with more than two syllables) you need to add "more" in front of the adjective instead of adding "er". For example: Lucy is more excited than her sister.

For the superlative add "est" to the end of the adjective. For example Tom is the tallest boy in our class.
There are also a few irregulars where the normal rules don't work:
good -> better -> best
bad -> worse -> worst
much -> more -> most
many -> more -> most
little -> less -> least

Also look out for adjectives that end with a "y"! Here you need to replace the "y" with an "i". For example the adjective "tidy": He is tidier than his little sister. OR He is the tidiest in our family.

Don't forget: Double the consonant after a short vowel: big - bigger - biggest OR sad - sadder - saddest
