As you may have noticed, there are many ways to compare things in English. So here’s just one more!
Using the « as…as » formula is very useful when you want to compare two things that have the same quality. Often, children compare their heights in this way. They might stand on a chair and say to their mom or dad: « I’m as tall as you! » Or they might compare themselves to their peers: « Jenny’s not as tall as me. »
There’s also a film from the late 90’s with Jack Nicholson: As Good as It Gets.
Here are a few more examples:
- My husband doesn’t like his job as much as I like mine.
- Our games aren’t as good as our friends’ games.
- My cats are as big as my dog.
- The day is as beautiful as it was yesterday.
- You are as beautiful as the first day I met you.
- It’s not as hot as yesterday.
