I noticed that my teenagers have a problem saying “more hotter” and “more taller” so I prepared a lesson on comparative adjectives. I asked the boys to give me some adjectives as examples, so we could practice forming them like cold, colder, coldest. They came up with typical simple ones, like red, fat, dark, big, etc. And one boy who almost never speaks — it’s always the quiet ones, isn’t it? — came up with “humid”. Huh? Can you even get the Weather Channel here?
But I’m learning how to roll with the punches, and we did a lesson on humid, more humid, most humid.
