5. Explaining the students, that adjectives can have more or less of a quality can be modified with very or really, but extreme adjectives are modified with really or absolutely.

The rule: Words like huge, fantastic and awful are sometimes called limit or extreme adjectives. Normally, extreme adjectives are not used with very, instead we use adverbs such as really or absolutely, e.g. it’s absolutely awful not it’s very awful.

Most extreme adjectives have an equivalent adjective, a scale adjective, which can be modified with very. For example very, very big = huge.

Scale adjectives , e.g. Big, hungry, etc. can be modified with very and really.

Task: The students tick or cross the correct or incorrect combinations in the box.


Really good v very good v absolutely good x

Really great v very great x absolutely great v

Really hot v very hot v absolutely hot x

Really boiling v very boiling x absolutely boiling v
