ENGLISH in 60 Seconds *GRAMMAR LESSON* – Participle Adjectives

Hi, I’m Teacher Mahya from California KL. Today, let’s look at Participle Adjectives.

  1. Past participle adjectives end in ‘ed’ and are used to describe how a person feels.
  • Bored
  • Amazed
  • Interested
  1. Present participle adjectives end in ‘ing’ and are used to describe how something is (not how someone feels).
  • Boring
  • Amazing
  • Interesting

“I was so bored and I didn’t know what to do.”

(You’re describing how you felt)

“Everyone thinks Kevin is boring except me.”

(You’re describing Kevin and his personality, not how he or you feel)

Good luck!

“Order of Adjectives”

When you want to describe something, you need to follow a specific sequence. 8 types of adjectives are placed as:

1- Opinion

2- Size

3- Age

4- Shape

5- Color

6- Origin

7- Material

8- Purpose

You might not need to use all these adjectives in one sentence very frequently but let’s imagine that you want to describe your cat to your friend very precisely.

Here the order of the adjectives will go I have a cute little 2-year fluffy brown Persian cat.

Or

if you want to describe a bag, you would say I need a nice big round brown Italian leather bag.

Now that you know the order, color up your sentences with more adjectives.
