Lesson Plan for Making Comparisons


At times you will need to compare one thing to another. A friend may ask you to compare two movies that
you have seen to decide which one he should watch, a colleague may want a comparison between two
vacation spots you have visited, or a stranger may ask for a comparison between two restaurants. When
you compare two or more things you may be describing them and are indicating which is better or worse
between two things. When the  superlative is used, you are indicating which is the best or the worst.
