Comparative Fashion | Esercizio Ascolto Inglese

Today’s online mini-lesson by Scrambled Eggs English School in Milan is on how to use the comparative when talking about fashion!

Milan is recognised worldwide as the fashion capital! So, the Team have put together a fashion-based audio with lots of related vocabulary. We have also incorporated the comparative so that you can learn how to compare styles and trends when talking about clothes and fashion.

We use the comparative when we compare two nouns. The comparative forms in different ways:

  • If the adjective is a short adjective, one syllable, we simply add ‘-er’ to the end of the adjective. NB Some words require a spelling change, the last constant doubles up, for example big becomes bigger.
  • If the adjective ends in ‘y’, we first change the ‘y’ to an ‘i’ and then also add ‘-er’ to the end of the adjective.
  • If the adjective is a long adjective, two syllables or more, we put ‘more’ in front of the adjective.
