More people are studying English these days. I guess that’s because in international business, people are using English more. I think a lot more businesses are looking to recruit candidates who can communicate in English. How about you? If you study more, maybe you can get more chances to land a great job.

Today, let’s have a look at a few ways to use more.

More comes before a noun, so we use more + noun in a comparative sentence:

  • I have more time tomorrow than today.
  • Jack has more books than I do.
  • Jenny ate more pizza than anyone else at the party.

We also use more of + proper noun, specifically names of people and places:

  • I saw more of Greg before he got his new job.
  • We visited more of San Francisco on our second trip there.

But more comes after a verb, so we use verb + more or verb + object + more.

  • I should study English more…Not, I should more study English.
  • I need to practice golf more.
  • Jack wants to sing more, so let’s stay at the Karaoke bar until 12:00

If you know anyone who might be interested in this English language point, why not help them out! Just share this lesson with them. Thanks for studying today!
