Basic Grammar Lesson - So vs Such

Happy was so tired this morning!

So and such have similar meanings, but these two words are used differently.

We use so before adjectives to mean “very” or “quite”.

The structure is so + adjective

For example, you can say so warm, so nice, so interesting. Here are some examples:

  • It was so warm today, that I saw people walking on Broadway wearing just T-shirts.
  • It was so cold last winter in New York.
  • I’m so happy that you’re studying with me here

We use such before nouns and noun phrases to mean “very” or “quite”.

The structure is such + noun (or) such + noun phrase.

For example, you can say such a gentleman, such a nice day, or such a fun party. Here are some examples:
