1. Individual Assignment: Practice with Pronouns, Adjectives, Adverbs, and Comparisons

• Write several sentences describing a recent interaction with a friend or family member about personal finance or credit cards. This interaction may be imagined or real.

• Use at least five different pronouns, adverbs, and adjectives in your sentences.

• Identify all pronouns used by italicizing them.

• Bold each adverb.

• Underline each adjective.

• Compare the event to one or more similar events. When comparing, use at least three comparatives and three superlatives.


These are my sentences:(Please let me know if I have any errors or mistakes on my sentences. Thank you in advance.)


My cousin Rudy and his fiancée Gina have been carefully(adverb) saving money for the past four years to get married this(pronoun) beautiful(adj.) summer. They told me that they secretly(adverb) limited their(pronoun) budget for the perfect old-fashioned(adj.) wedding. Gina took a basic(adj.) beginner cooking class probably(adv.) to learn the primary essentials of baking. With this class that she(pronoun) has been taking, it has truthfully(adv.) helped them(pronoun) save a big(adj.) amount of money, by eating homemade meals instead of eating out. My cousin would like to have a big enchanted(adv.) wedding, and Gina wanted a small(adj.) family wedding. The first couple of years were pretty(adv.) bad(adj.) for them(pronoun) because of the debts they had to pay. Both(pronoun) of them went to a pricey(adj.) university and they were surprisingly(adv.) in debt with a couple of students loans. In the end, they managed to happily(adv.) save money for their(pronoun) perfect(adj.) wedding.


*These are my comparing sentences:

Saving money is harder than spending money. When one has children, the most interesting changes happen in life. The fascinating wonders of having children, is that they are beautiful beings to have. My cousin does not have children and I do so I am busier than him. It seems that we are happier than him, because he is always at work and spends less time with his wife. I am always with my family and we have the most wonderful days a mother can ask for. Children are more expensive than having just a fiancé and it makes my cousin a better money saver than me.

  • Grammar - ,

    so I am busier than him. <~~ Use "he" not "him" (same error elsewhere, too)

    better money saver than me. <~~How should you correct this one?

    comparatives:
    harder, busier, happier, less, more expensive, better

    superlatives:
    most interesting, most wonderful,

  • Grammar - ,

    Do I have five different pronouns, adverbs, and adjectives in my sentences?

    Thank you!

    For the three comparatives and three superlatives, I only had two superlatives?

  • Grammar - ,

    Is this what you were talking about? To include "deep" between "surprisingly" and "in"? Then to remove the "s" in "students"?


    Both of them went to a pricey university and they were surprisingly deep in debt with a couple of student loans. In the end, they managed to save money happily for their perfect wedding.
