    Objectif 

    In this section, you will learn how to express comparatives and superlatives with verbs

    On étudie !

    Le comparatif des verbes

    Comparatif des verbes
    Français Anglais
    verbe + plus que verb + more than
    verbe + moins que verb + less than
    verbe + autant que verb + as much as

    For example:

    J'étudie plus que ma copine. (I study more than my girlfriend.)

    Il parles moins que je ne le pensais. (He speak less than I thought.)

    Caren danse autant que Shahrzad. (Caren dances as much as Shahrzad.)

    Le superlatif des verbes

    To compare actions (verbs), you use the following structures:

    Superlatif des verbes
    Français Anglais
    verbe + le plus verb + the most
    verbe + le moins verb + the least

    For example:

    C'est Paul qui mange le plus dans ma famille. (Paul is the one who eats the most in my family.)

    Il est la personne que je déteste le moins. (He's the person I hate the least.)
