S: Describing cities
FC: What is the best city in the world?
1: To describe we use adjectives. | Adjectives have three forms:positive, comparative and superlative.
4: Positive: Sao Paulo is Famous
5: Comparative form+than to compare two objects Panama is more famous than Ambato. | Superlative form to compare more than two objects or people. Sao Paulo is the most famous city.
7: Formation of the Comparative & the Superlative Adjectives of one or two syllables make the comparative form by adding “-er” and the superlative by adding “-est”. e.g. cleaner/cleanest Adjectives of two or more syllables form the comparative with more and the superlative with most. e.g more respected than, the most respected. Some adjectives such as clever, narrow, stupid, gentle, friendly, etc. form the comparative either with -er/est or more than/the most. e.g. friendlier/the friendliest or more friendly/ the most friendly.l.
9: Spelling Rules One syllable adjective ending in “-e” take an “-r” in the comparative and “-st” in the superlative form. e.g large- larger-largest. Two syllable adjectives ending in “-y” convert it into “-í” and then get “-er/est”. e.g. noisy- noisier- noisiest. Adjectives finishing in consonant- vowel-consonant, double the final consonant and then add an “-er/est”. e.g. big- bigger- biggest
