Vocabulary practice for the Cambridge PET exam
When we compare two things in English we can use 'er' or 'more/less' to say something is 'bigger than' or 'more expensive than' etc. However, there are other ways we can make comparisons like this. Look at these sentences. Can see other ways of comparing two things?
I'm not as good at English as Spanish.
I didn't spend as much as I usually do today.
I'll come as quickly as I can.
The economy is growing twice as fast as expected.
Is the UK the same as Britain?
This bread doesn't taste the same as usual.
Now try the quiz below to check your ideas.
Complete each sentence by choosing the correct comparative form:
For each question, complete the second sentence so that it means the
same as the first.
Use no more than three words.
To practise 'as ...as'/'same ... as' forms, compare your life now to 10 years ago. How have things changed? What things are still the same? For example:
I'm as fun to be with as I always was!
I don't like sweets as much as I used to.
My hairstyle is the same as it was 10 years ago.
