Adjectives -ed vs -ing



It's confusing! What's confusing? This grammar is confusing. How does it make you feel? I feel confused.

The "ing" ending for an adjective describes the person, or thing that causes a feeling or reaction. Examples: The trip was exciting. The lecture was interesting. The comedian was entertaining and amusing.

The "ed" ending describes a subjective response. It tells how I feel about the thing or person. Examples: I was annoyed when I had to wait in line. I was excitedabout the new class. I'm interested in the new book. I'm fascinated by Japanese art.

The YOU File - Introducing yourself to your classmates



This is an activity that students love! They sit in pairs or in groups of four and interview each other or the person sitting opposite them. Then they take their sheets back with the information filled by their classmate, get up and present themselves to the class.
