In the slide presentation below you will find a number of contexts where you can practise making comparisons.
But first, a quick review:
|To make the comparative or superlative of:||you:|
|one-syllable adjectives ending in e||add -r, -st|
|other one-syllable adjectives||add -er, -est|
|two-syllable adjectives ending in -y||change the y to i and add -er, -est|
|other two-syllable adjectives||put more, most in front|
|longer adjectives||put more, most in front|
Choose a few examples from the slide presentation, and write as many comparisons as you can. You can use some of the additional language on the third slide to help you. Example:
Being an employee is generally more stable than being self-employed, but it is also more restrictive. Whereas social charges are lower when you’re self-employed, retirement benefits are not as high. Self-employed people have a more flexible schedule, while employees work more predictable hours. The percentage of employees in France is much higher than the percentage of self-employed people. That may be because it is easier to be an employee.
Now it’s your turn. What comparisons can you make?
