Watch these videos to learn how to use adjectives.
Use adjectives to show the quality of something.
Point 1: Adjectives are often used after a be very to describe the subect.
- He is funny.
- It is hot today.
- My house is old.
- You are so nice!
Point 2: The be verb can change tenses, and the adjective does not change form.
- He was happy.
- It will be hot tomorrow.
- My house was old and cold.
- You can be nice at time.
Point 3: We sometimes add very and really to show greater intensity of a trait.
- Tokyo is really crowded.
- Rome is very old.
- She is really nice.
- He is very strict.
Point 4: Adjectives can also describe a noun. If the noun has a determiner or quantifier, it goes between them and the noun.
- Russia is a big country.
- She is a nice lady.
- It was a difficult test.
- I bought some really nice shoes.
