Part 4: Hot and cold

I'm ready to teach you all something interesting about using intensifying adjectives with hot and cold.

And after that I have interesting things to share about many other words including cold, mad, naked and so on. Lots of new vocabulary to expand your existing vocabulary. Oh and I have something to tell you about the word dead that you don't learn in your country when you study English.

But I need three more people to write example sentences for the Part 2 task. We have two great comments from Alena and Lyudmila. Who is brave enough to add their own example sentences to Part 2?

Oh and if you can't find Part 2 it's here!

Part 1: Introduction to intensifying adjectives

The purpose of this lesson is to help you understand how you can add an adjective to another adjective to make its meaning stronger. You will learn many examples of new vocabulary and understand how to use these forms correctly. Let's start.

Example

a brand new car

Explanation

The word brand is added to the word new when we want to emphasize that something is very new. Please note that you only use this word with special items that are more expensive.

You wouldn't say

I bought some brand new bread

You would say

I bought some fresh bread.
