I. Talk to a partner about the following questions.
1. What is your favorite city in the world? Justify your answer.
2. What must a city have to be perfect for you?
3. What is your opinion about the city you live in? What can be improved?
4. What would you change about the city you live in?
II. Watch the movie segment. Look at the items below. Write P if you think they are more evident in Paris (Midnight in Paris), R in Rome (To Rome with Love) or in NY (The Smurfs). Remember the rules:
as many ______________ as
as much ___________________ as
the most ______________ of the group
the most __________________ of the group
the fewest ______________ of the group
the least __________________ of the group
Superlatives describe a particular quality to the highest degree when compared to the same quality found elsewhere. So, we might say All the cities have a lot of cars in the streets, but I’d say New York has the most cars in the streets. OR Rome has the fewest cars in the streets. OR Paris has as many cars in the streets as New York and Rome.
( ) Cars in the street

( ) Famous monuments
