English Lesson: Short Responses with How and What

Michael Uncategorized 2 Comments

How cute they are!

We can use how or what to respond to a person or a situation.

We use how + adjective:

  • Jack: I got a new hat
  • Jane: How nice!
  • Cathy: Look at these flowers!
  • Jane: How beautiful!

We use what + adjective + noun:

  • Jack: I got a new hat
  • Jane: What a nice hat!
  • Cathy: Look at these flowers!
  • Jane: What beautiful flowers!

It is also possible to put S + V after these expressions, like this:

  • Jack: I got a new hat
  • Jane: How nice it is!
  • Jack: I got a new hat
  • Jane: What a nice hat it is!

Have you seen any beautiful flowers today?
