Here’s a grammar bite on comparative structures using ‘adjective+ er/more/less + than’ that we can use when we want to say that two items are different in a quality.
Remember that the general rule for one-syllable and some two-syllable adjectives, (small, clever, happy, etc.) is the affix -er, while other adjectives (honest, beautiful, interesting, etc.) have the word ‘more’ in front of them.
It’s Christmas time and many of the UK’s chain stores create the most incredible advertisements on pets, children and families. The advertisment that we have here is about a cat called Mog. Mog is the main character in a series of children’s books written by Judith Kerr and that somehow always manages to get into different conundrums.
This is a little listening activity based on Sainsbury’s 2015 Christmas Advert for some practice for elementary and pre-intermediate levels of English and, why not? help you get into the Christmas spirit.
