In this lesson, students will learn some adjectives and their opposites to describe people, places and things. They will see some pictures and try to describe them by using a certain word. They will learn later on that these words are adjectives. They will try to give the opposites of each one by looking at other pictures. They will also learn how to put adjectives in their correct places in sentences ( after the verb to be and before a noun). They will also learn that adjectives can't be used in the plural form. They will learn how to use an adjective with "very" in a sentence.
