COMPARATIVE ADJECTIVES- Adjetivos comparativos

Comparison of adjectives in English is very easy. You just have to take into account that there are three groups of adjectives when we talk about comparison: short adjectives (1 or 2 syllables), long adjectives (more than 2 syllabes or those formed with suffixes like -ing, -al, -ful) and irregular adjectives.
SHORT ADJECTIVES (adjetivos cortos- una sílaba)
Comparative adjectives are formed with the ending -er (than) Be careful with the spelling rules.
For example, 
my mother is older than your mother, 
your house is bigger than mine, 
this exercise is easier.

Superlative adjectives always come with the article the and the ending –est
For example, 
this is the tastiest food I’ve ever eaten, 
my house is the biggest in my neighbourhood, 
this exercise is the easiest.

LONG ADJECTIVES (adjetivos largos, más de dos sílabas o formados con sufijos)

Comparative adjectives need the word more before the adjective and (than before the second part of comparison)
For example,
the book I’m reading now is more interesting (than the book I read last month)

Superlative adjectives take the words the most before the adjective.
For example, 
the most beautiful pictures are taken at sunset.

IRREGULAR ADJECTIVES (adjetivos irregulares)

As they are irregular, you have to learn them by heart. Here you are the most common ones:

good– comparative better (than)- superlative the best
bad– comparative worse (than)- superlative the worst
far– comparative farther (than)- superlative the farthest
