  • Comparisons

You can make comparison in two aspects; comparative and superlative. You need to know how to change the form of adjectives and adverbs when making comparison. There are three ways to do that.

1. Add er / est such as fast – faster – fastest, low – lower – lowest
2. Using more / most such as comfortable – more comfortable – most comfortable.
3. Some adjectives and adverbs need to change to other words completely

Many – more- most, badly – worse – worst

  • Adverbs of frequency

There are 12 adverbs of frequency. They signify how often an action happens. Each of them shows different degree of frequency. They are always close to a verb or an adjective.

100%AlwaysHe always gives me a ride home.
UsuallyI usually cook for my family.
Normally / GenerallyNormally, the market is crowded on Saturday.
Often / FrequentlyThe program is frequently used in the office.

  • Clauses

A clause includes a subject and a verb. There are two kinds of clauses; independent and dependent. These two are seen together in a complex sentence.

Example: I will call him as soon as he landed.

The independent clause is underlined. It makes sense on its own. The dependent clause is in bold. It doesn’t make sense and incomplete when it’s alone.

A clause in a sentence can act as a noun, adjective, or adverb. See more details here.
