  • Hello, I'm Emma from English!

  • In this lesson, you'll learn how to use

  • these little, useful words correctly in English sentences.

  • Both of these words indicate a degree.

  • They give us more information about

  • an adjective or an adverb or a noun.

  • So, here 'too' means that it is

  • more than what is wanted or what is needed.

  • So, it's usually a negative thing!

  • You are more hungry than you want to be!

  • This is really frustrating for you

  • because you can't concentrate!

  • So here, 'enough' tells us

  • that it is the amount that we want or we need.

  • It's the right amount and this is a positive thing!

  • You have what is needed, you are good enough.

  • Ouch! That is really mean!

  • Not enough means that it is

  • less than the amount that you want or you need.

  • It's a really negative thing. It's a pretty mean thing to say.

  • So, let's look at the structures for each of these words

  • with adjectives and adverbs first.

  • So, 'too' comes before an adjective or an adverb.

  • Remember that using 'too' with an adjective

  • or an adverb usually suggests that it's a negative thing.

  • It's more than what is wanted or needed.

  • So, it's not correct to say that the movie was 'too good'

  • when you really enjoyed it!

  • It's also not correct to say that your friend is 'too funny'.

  • It sounds really strange to native English speakers

  • because it suggests that it's more than what you want

  • or what you need it to be.

  • Use 'really' or 'very' or 'so' instead.

  • That sounds better!

  • There are some exceptions to this though,

  • when you're speaking colloquially

  • - especially in Australia, where I'm from!

  • Like... For example, if someone asked me,

  • "How are you?"

  • I'd probably say, "Not too bad."

  • This is really common in Australia and it means 'good'

  • but that's an exception.

  • Okay, what about 'enough'?

  • 'Enough' comes after the adjective or the adverb.

  • Now, what about when 'enough' is used

  • in a negative sentence?

  • 'Enough' comes after the adjective or the adverb

  • but 'not' comes before.

  • And this has the same meaning as 'I'm too weak'.

  • ... Which means 'it's too cold'!

  • You can also use 'too' and 'enough' with nouns.

  • So again, this means that we have more of the noun

  • than we want or we need.

  • You would choose 'many' if the noun was countable.

  • And you would choose 'much'

  • if the noun was uncountable.

  • Now, if you are not sure about

  • which nouns are countable and which are uncountable,

  • you should check out this lesson right here

  • because I'll explain it for you there!

  • So, what about 'enough'?

  • Well, with a noun 'enough' comes before the noun.

  • Again, this means that we have the right amount,

  • the amount that we want and that we need.

  • And to make these sentences negative we add 'not'

  • - usually before the main verb.

  • The 'be' verb is a bit of an exception here, to the rule.

  • The structure is a little different.

  • When the 'be' verb is the main verb,

  • then 'not' comes after the main verb.

  • So, these handy little words will definitely help you to

  • express yourself more clearly in English

  • and now you know exactly how to use them correctly.

  • Make sure you practise them.

  • Write some examples if you want,

  • add them in the comments below!

  • Remember that 'too'

  • means that it's more than the necessary amount.

  • 'Enough' is the necessary amount, it's the exact amount.

  • And 'not enough' is less than the necessary amount.

  • And if you've managed to make it through this lesson

  • all the way to the end

  • then you are going to get a special reward
