    Strong adjectives

    Adjectifs Forts

    Strong or extreme adjectives are adjectives which are used instead of using very + a normal adjective.

    Strong adjectives are more expressive than normal adjectives and are used with adverbs like really or absolutely.

    You can use really and very with normal adjectives.

    Look at these two sentences:

    I thought the film was really/very good (good is a normal adjective)

    I thought the film was really/absolutely fantastic (fantastic is a strong adjective)

    Use strong adjectives to complete the gaps in the exercise below.
