Lesson 5: Greatest Vacation of All Time


Anna goes to a travel agent to find the Best Vacation Ever! But does
she? Travel agent Ace wants to sell her the Most Expensive Vacation
Ever. But does he?

Anna: Do you need a vacation? Wow. That was the best vacation I have ever had in my head. A beach is much better than here. I need a vacation!


Professor Bot: I hear you, Anna. I need a vacation too but not at the
beach. Sand is not good for robots! When we compare things, we use
special forms of adjectives. "Better" is a comparative adjective. That
is used to compare two things. "Best" is a superlative adjective. It
shows that one thing has more of ...something than ALL of the others.
Try to find more of these adjectives. Look for ER or EST at the end.


Ace: NO! You cant get your money back. I dont care that it was your worst vacation ever!


Ace: Hello! Have a seat! Welcome to the Worlds Best Vacation Travel Agency!


Anna: Thank you and congratulations!


Ace: For what?


Anna: For being the worlds best travel agency.


Ace: Right thanks.


Ace: Trudy, hold my calls. I am going to sell our most expensive vacation.


Trudy: Sure thing, Boss.


Ace: The Mountain Getaway is good for you. Its a little pricey. But think of it -- you, on top of a mountain for seven days!


Anna: Im afraid of high places.


Ace: Of course you are. Thats why our Deep Sea Adventure is better for you! It is pricier than the Mountain Getaway. Just you and the animals of the sea!


Anna: Shark! Shark!


Ace: No, there are no sharks in your dream vacation! You need the Safari Camp Out! It is
our priciest vacation. But I think its the best one for you. During
the day, youll see elephants, giraffes and lions. At night, youll
sleep out under the stars.


Anna: Look, I think this was a bad idea.


Ace: Sure, you can leave. But then you wont see the latest vacation technology.


Professor Bot: Did you find all of those adjectives? Dan started with
good - The mountain getaway; then he moved to better - The Deep Sea
Adventure. And finally, he said the Safari Campout was the best vacation
for Anna!


Anna: Exactly what is the latest vacation technology exactly?


Ace: Im happy you asked. Meet the Travel Max 2000!


Anna: Wow.


Ace: So, tell me, how do you like to travel?


Anna: Well, I like travel that is cozy and romantic but still exciting.


Ace: Great. Tell me more.


Anna: I like traveling in a plane but not in a helicopter! Planes are
a little scary but helicopters are scarier! My favorite way of
traveling is by train. Ships can be the scariest! Have you seen the
movie Titanic? Oh, and no horses. But I will ride a camel. And no bike tours. Biking is THE slowest AND least romantic way to travel. Excuse me, but I think the Travel Max 2000 is on fire.


Ace: Yes, were both on fire! We really want to sell you the most ex-, I mean, best vacation ever!


Anna: No, I mean its really on fire!


Ace: You killed it. You killed the Travel Max 2000!


Anna: I am so sorry! Can I help you fix it?


Ace: No, no!


Anna: Dont cry. I know what you need -- a vacation!


Anna: The Safari Campout looks fun. It is the priciest. But I think you deserve it.


Ace: No, no!


Professor Bot: Oh Anna. This is the smokiest lesson yet! There were a
lot of comparatives and superlatives but I cant breathe. Just go to
the website to learn the best ways to use them!
