Words ending with -isimo are just one example of a Spanish superlative. In this class, students will revise a list of adjectives ending in -ado before translating sentences that include these adjectives. Students then will be guided through how to use the suffix ‘-ísimo’ when emphasizing the idea carried by an adjective and answer questions after listening to recordings. This class covers key skills in grammar which students in Years 9-11 will find extremely useful to review!
