Helpful English – Comparison II


Notice we use than after the adjective if there are 2 subjects.
“Mike is taller than my brother.” Mike and my brother are the subjects.
“The book is usually more interesting than the movie.” In this sentence the 2 subjects are the book and the movie.
If the sentence has only 1 subject the word ‘than’ isn’t needed.
“Robert is thinner since he stopped drinking beer.” – This means “thinner than before he stopped drinking..” but than is not needed.
A: “I think I’m pretty strong.”
B: “I think I’m stronger.”
Make your own example sentences using comparative form.
Ex: I’m smarter than my brother.
