Comparatives are a challenge for students because they need to remember grammatical rules. This lesson provides activities to engage your ESL students in a fun practice of adjectives and comparative sentences. Students also practice pronunciation and stressed syllables.
By reading the adjectives presented in this handout, you can model pronunciation and have students underline the stressed syllable as you read. Students can practice reading the adjectives to their partners. Encourage them to emphasize the stressed syllables. This might be embarrassing for some students but remind them that they are in the perfect environment to practice; their comfortable classroom.
