The Amazing Race (TAR)is a popular reality TV show. Elise Doganieri and Bertram van
Munster created it in 2001 and since then it has won many awards. In the show, teams travel
around the world to different places. They try to arrive first, or at least not come last and they
also try to win prizes on their journey.
Every year, between 10 and 12 teams play on the show. There are two people in each team
and they must know each other before they come on the game. For example, they can be
husband and wife, parents and children, friends, etc. They have to travel to different countries
and work together on the journey. The teams get some money at the beginning of the race and
they use it to buy food, tickets, etc. They can use planes, trains, bikes or even skis to travel.
The teams explore places theyve never been to before and have games or challenges. These
challenges have some connection to the country they are in and can be things like riding a
camel, solving puzzles or eating a lot of food, for example. The teams often have to face
extreme weather conditions during their journey. Many times they are outside in the rain or
snow or in storms and get cold and wet. Its all part of the experience, though.
Each week, one team leaves the show, and in the end there are only four teams. The first
team to get to the last city on the journey wins the game. TAR is a very hard game and the
teams become really stressed, but its an amazing experience.
1. What do teams in TAR do?
a. They do different sports.
c. They race to various places.

b. They win awards and prizes.

Comparative and Superlative forms


We use comparatives to compare two things or two people.
(e.g She is taller than her husband.)
Superlatives are used, however, to compare to show the difference between more than two
things or more than two people. (e.g Paris is the biggest city in France)
To form comparatives and superlatives you need to know the number of syllables in the
adjective. Syllables are like "sound beats".
For instance:
"find" contains one syllable,
but "finding" contains two find and ing.

The rules to form comparatives and superlatives:


1. One syllable adjective ending in a silent 'e' nice
Comparative add 'r' nicer
Superlative add 'st' nicest
2. One syllable adjective ending in one vowel and one consonant big
Comparative the consonant is doubled and 'er' is added bigger
Superlative the consonant is doubled and 'est' is addedbiggest
3. One syllable adjective ending in more than one consonant or more than a vowel high,
cheap
Comparative 'er' is added higher, cheaper
Superlative 'est is added highest, cheapest
27

M3T Schools
Prep Stage (1), Language Section, traveller, First Term

4. A two syllable adjective ending in 'y' happy


Comparative 'y' becomes 'i' and 'er' is added happier
Superlative 'y' becomes 'i' and 'est' is added happiest
5. Tow syllable or more adjectives without 'y' at the end exciting
Comparative more + the adjective + than more exciting than
Superlative more + the adjective + than the most exciting
Examples:
The Nile River is longer and more famous than the Thames.
Egypt is much hotter than Sweden.
Everest is the highest mountain in the world.
This is one of the most exciting films I have ever seen.

Worksheet 17

Read the text below and write T for True or F for False
Havasu Falls are in the Havasu Canyon next to the Grand Canyon in the southwestern
USA. There are actually three waterfalls in the area: Havasu, Mooney and Navajo. The
waterfalls are in the Havasupai Indian Reservation, the home of the Havasupai people.
Havasupai means people of the blue-green waters.
The best time to visit the falls is in spring, in the months of April and May because the
weather is cool, but it is warm enough to swim. Later, in summer, it gets hot and rainy and
there can be floods, too. Visitors can camp in a campsite or stay at the Havasu Lodge. But you
have to book a room at the Lodge three or four months before you plan to go.
To reach the falls you start at the parking area at Hualapai Hilltop. From there you can walk,
ride a horse or fly in a helicopter to Supai village, 13 km away. From Supai village it is about
4 km to Mooney Falls. You dont have to be an experienced hiker to walk to the falls because
the walk is safe, even for beginners. However, you must be very careful because there are
many dangerous cliffs. There are also caves to explore on the way. It is a good idea to take
water with you and to watch out for rattlesnakes, too.
Whether you walk, ride a horse or take the helicopter, the impressive waterfalls and the
peaceful surroundings make this one of the most fascinating places you can visit. It is an
unforgettable experience.
1. Havasu is one of the three waterfalls in the Grand Canyon.
2. The months of July and August are not a good time to visit the falls.
3. The Mooney Falls are about 17km from the parking area.
4. The walk to the falls is dangerous for walkers without experience.
