10.6 - Adjectives
The following text is taken from an Intermediate coursebook. In the activity, students need to choose a new assistant to work with the managers in a television and radio company.
When deciding if you wanted her as your assistant, you probably focused on words such as reliable, popular, strong-willed. These adjectives describe the candidate, thus helping us decide if this is the right candidate for the job. Adjectives are therefore very important when describing something or someone.
a) A comparative form – older
b) A superlative form – best
c) A compound adjective – self-confident, over-confident, strong-willed, even-tempered
Typical endings: confident, energetic, cooperative, boring, strong-willed, even-tempered, reliable.
