Teaching – “er” adjectives

Here’s another great powerpoint presentation. This time the powerpoint comes from a teacher I work with. It shows students how to make comparisons by attaching “er” to adjectives (e.g. bigger, taller, faster, etc.).

Time: about 15 or 20 minutes

Level: 2nd grade JHS

Which is stronger, Godzilla or King Kong?

In the book there is a pretty interesting story to work with involving King Kong and Godzilla. But I think this powerpoint can make this lesson more interactive and interesting for the students. Download the powerpoint below and check it out for yourself:

Why this powerpoint is good 

  • It compares internationl landmarks, raising student awareness about the rest of the world
  • It is presented in a quiz-show style so students can enjoy the thrill of guessing and discovery
  • There is a section at the end where students can personalize the learning point by choosing between two things (e.g. math and English) and using the grammar to tell others about their preferences.


  • The powerpoint uses Japanese translations for all the sentences — something which may be helpful to students. I have a feeling, though, that given the right class, it could be done without it.
