So and Such – English Grammar Lesson

Expressing yourself accurately is very important in any language. Are you a little bit hungry? Really hungry? Extremely hungry? Life is not black and white. We don’t always talk about absolutes. For that reason, words which can change the strength of your adjectives are very important.

There is another reason why these words are important – passion! Is it enough to say that the love of your life is beautiful?  Or handsome? No! Add some extra fire to your words! You are so beautiful! He is such a handsome man. This food is so delicious! I have had such an amazing day. Using these words correctly can make the things you say so much more interesting or exciting.

We frequently use ‘so’ and ‘such’ like this to make an adjective stronger, more intense, in a similar way to ‘very’ or ‘really’.


It was very hot.

It was so hot.

It was such a hot day.


Notice the difference in the structure of the sentences?


It is so cold                     so + adjective

It is such a cold day       such + a/an + adjective + noun
