1.en.6 Revision of comparatives to help you compare cities: size, population, wealth, density

Now, we’ll have a closer look at grammar and see how to compare adjectives. There are some rules you must bear in mind.

Look at this excellent power point from grup14  and check if you understand how comparing adjectives works. Take notes in your workbook. Label your notes: grammar, comparatives and also make a reference to the post (1.en.6.) this way you will always know where your notes come from.

Did you find the presentation useful?
