USE OF ADJECTIVES TO
My name isYeimy Alexandra López. I am an
English teacher. Today, we will learn to use
adjectives when describing nouns.
Adjectives are words which tell us something
about nouns, that is about a person, an
animal, a thing or a place. They usually come
before the nouns they describe.
The girl is beautiful
That snake is ugly
Mike is tall
Jhon is short
Itis a big red chair
The bag is small and old
It is a French table
Peter is thin and strong
An adjective describes how something 'is'. For
this reason, we usually use the verb 'to be'
when using adjectives.
Maryis an intelligent woman.
The students are very talkative.
I am not too strong.
don't have a singular and plural
form OR a masculine, femine and neuter form:
EXAMPLE: They are very intelligent students.
Karen is tall and thin.
Adjectives are always the same! Never add a
final -s to an adjective.
EXAMPLE: A big white cat.
It is a big new house.
