Learning when to use VERY, TOO and ENOUGH

Hello World! This is Eduardo Souto again coming to you from the VPFI Office in the small city of Guariba - SP, BRAZIL.

It's a pleasure to be here once again updating Você pode falar Inglês (VPFI) with some interesting content!

This is our 1067º blog post, I really hope you enjoy it as much as I do!

Today we are going to learn the differences among VERY, TOO and ENOUGH!




1. VERY
  • Use very before adjectives, adverbs or -ing words. 
  • Very is neutral – it is not positive or negative. It makes the word that comes after it stronger.
Examples: 
  • “Wayne is a very funny man.”
  • “I had a very busy day at work.”
  • “The exam is very difficult, but Jim can complete it.”
2. TOO
  • Too is used before adjectives and adverbs. 
  • Too is negative; we use it too mean there is more or less than we need/want. 
  • Too can be used with infinitive + to after the adjective/adverb.Use for + someone/something to explain who/what we mean.
Examples:
  • "It's too noisy in here. Let's go outside." (too + adjective)
  • "My soup is too hot to drink." (too + adjective + to + infinitive)
  • "This is too difficult for me to understand." (too + adjective + for someone/something)

3. ENOUGH
  • Use enough before a noun but after an adjective or adverb. 
  • We can use for someone/something and an infinitive with enough and to. 
  • Enough is positive - it means that we have as much as we want.
Examples:
  • "I have enough money to pay."
  • "There's enough food for everyone to eat." (enough + noun + for + someone/something + to)
