Comparatives and Superlatives

19 Mar

In your opinion, what’s the best football team in Spain?

Which films do you think are more interesting: horror films or comedies?

These two questions are dealing with the Comparative and Superlative grammar.  It’s actually quite interesting to understand this grammar because you can use it in real-life conversations….

*For teachers:  Check out the adjective game.  I usually play with flashcards, depending on the level you can choose different adjectives.

Below you can find downloadable flashcards with adjectives.  This site’s got 3 sets (listed below as well)


(set 1) strong, weak. tall, short, slow, fast, heavy, light, pretty, ugly, boring, fun, big, small

(set 2) full, empty, high, low, wet, dry, close, far, long, short, new, old, easy, hard, dark, light, clean, dirty

(set 3) blurry, broken, bumpy, cracked, fiery, flowery, fluffy, glowing, holey, scratched, shiny, spotty, striped, stormy, wavy

If you really want to read some interesting stuff, check out the official site of Guinness World Records:


You can find out about some weird records like the highest jump done by a dog, or the longest female fingernails….and you can practice the superlative 😉
