1.en.6 Comparatives: more …..than

Last week, during our English lessons we used comparatives a lot.

“A forest, more than trees”

“2nd ESO E , more than  students”

“Sara’s whistling was the best”

Now, we’ll have a closer look at grammar and see how to compare adjectives. There are some rules you must bear in mind.

Look at this excellent power point from grup14  and check if you understand how comparing adjectives works. Take notes in your workbook. Label your notes: grammar, comparatives and also make a reference to the post (1.en.6.) this way you will always know where your notes come from.

Did you find the presentation useful?

We shall do more practice in class and you must have the rules at hand, but now some homework. Before Tuesday the 27th

Go to the post made on the 20th of September by  Vicent Viel, your History teacher: Principals aglomeracions urbanes

and click on the link he gave you:

http://www.citypopulation.de/world/Agglomerations.html

Make 3 sentences comparing the cities that appear in the chart and post them to the blog. Copy the sentences you post in your notebook too.

Rules for doing this exercise. You cannot repeat a sentence that has previously been posted.

When you mention a city, you must know where the city  is a you must also be able to locate the city in a map.

It will be easier for the first ones to post the comments to the blog, so Hurry up!

Useful terms.

more populated than

most heavily populated

more densely populated than

less populated

the most populated in .. /the least populated in …..

You can compare cities at world level, within a continent or within a country. You can also compare continents.

No excuses for lack of data. If you run out of information to make your three sentences check this other site:
