The weather is so nice today. The sun is shining very brightly and the sky is very blue. I love the summer. Well, I don’t like when it is too hot and humid. Sometimes it is so hot in New York that you can’t walk around outside for too long.
Too, so, and very are similar words but we use them differently. In today’s lesson we will take a look at the difference between the these words.
Too + Adjective
Too + adjective is used to show something is excessive or problematic. Too is used with negative adjectives like expensive, tired, difficult, etc. Too implies a negative feeling and perhaps an unstated negative consequence. Look at the following example:
Justin: Do you want to come to the party tonight, Mike?
When we want to show that because something is excessive or problematic and there is a consequence, we use too + adjective, as in the above examples. When we simply want to emphasize an adjective, we use very.
Very + Adjective
Let’s compare too and very:
Remember, we do not use too with positive adjectives:
So + Adjective
So, how was today’s lesson? I hope it wasn’t it too difficult. I’m so happy that you visited my blog today. That was very nice of you. By the way, what is the summer like where you live?
