ENGLISH in 60 Seconds *GRAMMAR LESSON* – Participle Adjectives

Hi, I’m Teacher Mahya from California KL. Today, let’s look at Participle Adjectives.

1. Past participle adjectives end in ‘ed’ and are used to describe how a person feels.

  • Bored
  • Amazed
  • Interested

2. Present participle adjectives end in ‘ing’ and are used to describe how something is (not how someone feels).

  • Boring
  • Amazing
  • Interesting

“I was so bored and I didn’t know what to do.”

(You’re describing how you felt)

“Everyone thinks Kevin is boring except me.”

(You’re describing Kevin and his personality, not how he or you feel)

Good luck!
