    Very useful activities, thank you! I notice there are no songs… I would suggest you to include “Accidentally in Love” :)

  6. alexcase says:

    Good point. I moved all the comparative ones and superlative ones to their own pages, leaving none here… Any ideas for songs with both comparative and superlative, anyone?

    Could only find one decent one with both, from Rockin’ English, just added.
