English Lesson: Pretty, Cute, & Beautiful

Michael Uncategorized 4 Comments

My sister is very pretty. She had a date last night and she wore a pretty pink dress. She looked beautiful. She had a cute hair clip in her hair and it was the same color as her bag.

Today I would like to talk about three words which are sometimes confused: Pretty, Cute, and Beautiful. Do you know how to use these words? Have a look at the paragraph above and then check today’s lesson.

Pretty is used for women & girls, things that relate to women & girls, and things in nature.

  • Jane is a pretty girl, just like her mother.
  • Lori has a pretty feather in her hair.
  • She was wearing a pretty dress
  • You can also have a pretty hair style, a pretty blouse, and pretty shoes
  • What a pretty flower!
  • There was such a pretty sunset tonight.

Beautiful is also used for women & girls, things that relate to women & girls, and things in nature.

  • Jane is a beautiful girl, just like her mother.
  • Lori has a beautiful feather in her hair.
  • She was wearing a beautiful dress
  • You can also have a beautiful hair style, a beautiful blouse, and beautiful shoes
  • What a beautiful flower!
  • There was such a beautiful sunset tonight.

Cute can be used for people, and objects not found in nature. We do not use cute for things in Nature

  • Jane is a cute girl, just like her mother.
  • Lori has a cute feather in her hair.
  • She was wearing a cute dress
  • Hello Kitty is so cute! Not, Hello Kitty is so pretty
  • Little Johnny is a cute boy. Not, Little Johnny is a pretty boy
