Comparative Adjectives

Comparatives are used to compare two people, two objects or two situations. They vary according to their use in the sentence. They are used with nouns, adjectives, verbs or adverbs. In this lesson, we will show you how to use comparatives with adjectives.

Comparatives of superiority

In French we use the comparative “plus que” to express superiority between two people, two objects or two situations.

For example:

L’océan Pacifique est plus grand que l’océan Atlantique.
The Pacific Ocean is bigger than the Atlantic Ocean.

Elle est plus intelligente que toi.
She is smarter than you.


When we compare the same possessions, it is better to use a possessive pronoun or in certain cases a demonstrative pronoun followed with the preposition “de” to avoid repetition.
