## A step further...

Study this chart to see how we make comparisons in Spanish. Especially pay attention to how we make comparisons with adjectives and adverbs since we have been practicing adjectives and verbs. I have also included making comparisons with nouns, but this is looking ahead a bit. We have just begun looking at the gender and number of nouns. For now, it is something to become aware of, but you will not be tested over it in this lesson. This information is to help you add more detail to your descriptions if you wish.

 con adjetivos con adverbios con sustantivos (nouns) Martín es más inteligente que Miguel. Manuel corre más rápido que yo. Milagros tiene más hermanos que yo. Miguel es menos inteligente que Martín. Yo corro menos rápido que Manuel. Cynthia tiene menos gatos que yo. Carlos es tan inteligente como Martín. Cyndra corre tan rápido como Manuel. Araceli tiene tantos hermanos como Milagros. Yo no tengo tanto dinero (money) como mi hermana. traducciones (translations) - más - more, menos - less / fewer, que - than, tan - as, como - as ¿Teresa tiene tantas clases como tú? ¡Tú no tienes tanta tarea como yo!
