Comparatives and superlatives

We can use comparatives to compare things and superlatives to say which thing is top in a group.

Cats are faster than mice.
Science is more difficult than maths.
The cheetah is the fastest animal.
I think art is the most difficult subject.

How to use them

For adjectives with one syllable, add er and est. Sometimes the spelling changes. Don't forget the for the superlative.

tall - taller - the tallest
I'm taller than my brother. My father is the tallest in my family.
big - bigger - the biggest
My room is bigger than my sister's room. Our parents' room is the biggest room in the house.

For adjectives with two syllables which end in y, take away the y and add ier and iest. Don't forget the for the superlative.

easy - easier - the easiest
Maths is easier than science. English is the easiest subject.

For other adjectives with two or more syllables, use more and most. Don't forget the for the superlative.

interesting - more interesting - the most interesting
That book is more interesting than my homework. This TV programme is the most interesting!

The adjectives good, bad and far have special forms.

good - better - the best
bad - worse - the worst
far - further - the furthest

Wow!!!! The game where you have to guess words is definitly the BEST game! Have you got more games like that one?

Hi TopazXylophoneTonight, 

I'm happy you liked the game! I'm sorry we don't have many games like that one at the moment. But when we add more games to the site, we'll try to make some more like this one :-)


Best wishes,

Infirst game is wrong answer. The biggest country on the world is Russia not China.

Hi QuickJade1,


In the first game the question is 'This country has the biggest population in the world'. 'Population' means the number of people who live somewhere. China is the country with the most people, so that's why it's the answer :-)


Hope you're enjoying the activities here!
