    Today, we will learn how to express exclamation through three key words:


    So, What, and Such.

    They are all used differently and have unique rules.


    1) So

    "So" is used with an adjective when used to express an exclamation.

    For example:

    - He is so tall !

    - He is so smart !



    2) What

    What is a little different from his two counterparts:

    There is no verb in the sentence when used with exclamation, unlike so and such.

    As examples:

    What a nice dog !

    It is such a nice dog !

    It is so nice !

    "What" is used in the beginning of the sentence to express the exclamation.


    What a genius !

    "What" can be used with an adjective and followed by a noun or just a noun, while the other two exclamations cannot.

    For example:

     - What a nice man !

     - What a man !

     - He is so nice !

     - He is so man !

     - He is such a nice man !

     - He is such a man !



    What a genius !

    What an idiot !

    What a smart girl !

    What a dumb girl !

    The rule is the following:

    What followed by a or an and then the adjective and/or the noun and finally never forget the " ! "

    (What + a/an + adjective + !) / (What + a/an + adjective + noun + !)


    3) Such

    "Such" is used with an adjective and a noun when used to express an exclamation.


    She is such a lonely woman !

    She is such a lovely woman !



    He is such a good boy ! ---> He is such a bad boy !

    She is such a nice woman ! ---> She is such an evil woman !

    The general rule is the following:

    Subject or pronoun and then the verb and then "such" and the adjective and the noun and " ! " at the end =

    (Pronoun/Subject + Verb + such + Adjective + noun +!)


    In this exercise, you have to choose between the correct exclamation: So / What / Such in each sentence. 

    Good luck!
