Adjectives - part 2

Posted by ISLPR Language Services on May 7, 2019 at 6:15 AM


Use _er, _est if the adjective has one or two syllables, e.g. happy, happier, happiest; high, higher, highest.

 Positive degree: high 

Comparative degree: higher

Superlative degree; highest

 Use more or most if the adjective has more than two syllables, e.g. beautiful, more beautiful, most beautiful.

There are also some words that have special comparative forms, e.g. good, better, best; bad, worse, worst.


every (adjective) = all the things referred to but it is treated as a singular, i.e. it is usually followed by a singular noun, e.g. Every boy in the class failed the test.

Much, many 

much + singular uncountable noun, e.g. much money.

many + plural countable noun, e.g. many boys.

At ILS, language testing is personal.

Language is an interactive and social skill. Therefore, we believe English should be taught and tested similarly.

ISLPR Language Services (ILS) developed the ISLPR® Test because we saw the need for a test that examined your real-life language. The ISLPR® Test is an interactive and personalised test. As the ISLPR test is personalised for each candidate, there are no tricks to pass the test. 

Why we're different:

  • We test your speaking, listening and reading skills in a one-to-one interview.
  • The content of your test is customised to match your area of expertise.
  • The ISLPR is the shortest English test, therefore minimising the chance of fatigue.
  • We offer individual English tutorials with accredited tutors.
  • We offer a feedback service so you can find out why you got that rating in your test.
