PROGRESO DE LA LECCIÓN
0% Completado

Goal

It’s time to revise superlatives. We will learn how to use them in a more skilful way.

You can watch the video or go straight to the written explanation. You decide! Once you’ve finished, you can move to step 4.


Language Discovery

Look at the words in blue in the text on step 1. What do they have in common?

  •  They are all superlative sentences.

General notions

Use superlative adjectives to compare the qualities of a noun to all the other nouns in a group. 

The structure used is the following: (see level 4 lesson 6 step3)

subject + be+ the + superlative adjective + complement

SUPERLATIVES WITH IN

  • Sydney ranks among the best in the world
  • The city also obtained the highest score in the list

After superlatives, we often use in + names of places, or singular words for groups of people or things.

SUPERLATIVES WITH PRESENT PERFECT + EVER

  • Tokyo might be the most impressive city I have ever visited.
  • New York has the best restaurants I’ve ever been to.

After superlatives, we can use the present perfect +ever

SUPERLATIVES WITH THE LEAST

  • My city might be the least impressive city in the world

We can use the least + adjective

The least = The opposite of the most

Conclusión

Ready? Terrific! Let’s move on to step 3 to practise what you’ve learnt in this step.
