There are many ways to compare things. Often, we use an adjective and one of the following
sentences patterns:
                    Expressions for Comparing Two Objects
    cheap, easy to use              cheaper (than),    easier to use (than)
  comfortable, powerful       more comfortable (than), more powerful (than)
not cheap, not comfortable       not as cheap (as), not as comfortable (as)


As a class: Look at the advertisements below and make comparisons between the products:
                                                  Advantages of Cool Walkers
                            (1)           Cool Walkers are not as expensive as Slim Jimms.
                            (2)
                            (3)

Work in pairs. Compare these items. Write your comparisons down in your workbook or on a
separate piece of paper. (Teachers, lengthen it: A longer more in-depth activity is available from the
teacher’s manual).




                                            That’s like comparing apples and oranges.
                            This means that two things are so different that you can’t compare them.
Look at the conversation below. When you do the shopping role-play, use this
conversation as a guide.

       Clerk:      Welcome to Kenny’s Shoes. We’re having a sale on dress shoes.

       Shopper: That’s great. I need some dress shoes. What do you have on sale?
       Clerk:   Well, we have Silver Jims and Cool Walkers.

       Shopper: What do you recommend?
       Clerk:   Well, Silver Jimms are more fashionable and
                   higher quality. Whereas, Cool Walkers are not as expensive
                   and they’re more comfortable.

       Shopper: What’s the difference in price?
       Clerk:   With tax, the Silver Jims come to $47.00 and the Cool Walkers
                   come to $39.00.

       Shopper: So that’s about an $8.00 difference.
       Clerk:   That’s right.

       Shopper: I’ll take the Cool Walkers.
       Clerk:   How would you like to pay?

       Shopper: I’ll put it on my credit card.
                          ...
       Clerk:   Alright, here’s your receipt. Have a nice day.
       Shopper: Thanks.




                           1 - You are going on a vacation and you need to do some shopping
                           before you go.
                                  Go shopping to your partner(s) shop(s).

                           2 - Change places. Sell your products .
