Hey thanks for this, it's brilliant! One of the best PowerPoints I've come across on this site! Just to let you know, I changed 'which one is more smart' to 'which are smarter' and so on for each of them. I'm using this today, I think my kids will love it! Thanks again for the quality post!

Thanks jack! Regarding the questionable usage of "which one is more adj.", it was intentional.
I didn't want to reveal the comparative adjective since part of the task was to create the recall/formulate the comparative knowing only the base adjective. I would also get the student to spell out the comparative if it was an example consonant duplication (e.g. big = bigger).

Leo,  how do you make your power points?  Do you use a mac?

Leo,  how do you make your power points?  Do you use a mac?

i do indeed use a mac, but i still use powerpoint 2011, which is actually an inferior version of powerpoint 2010 for windows. the mac version is virtually identical except for a few aesthetic tweeks, but lacks the all important "trigger" function. it also comes with a different set of themes, but i don't use the theme templates. the trigger function is what allows Deajeon to make all his awesome and interactive bomb games. As a result, my powerpoints are all linear, whereas Deajeon's are highly interactive. You can make this same powerpoint in office 2003/4 as well, but it would lack a few of the nicer transitions and the ability to embed videos directly into the file.
if you're asking "how" i make the powerpoints and not what do i use to make the powerpoints, i can only say that i spend a lot more time on each lesson than the average teacher and that i'm very much a perfectionist. actually, my lessons were basically just titles, headers and bullet points for the first 5 or so months in korea, but then i started refining my pp skills to what it is today.

i hope that answered your question?


Hey! Excellent powerpoint! I've been rockin' the Konglish jokes in class too; they eat it up... most of the time (I think the devil one gets the best reaction). Well, unfortunately, the embedded videos won't open in the ppt version I have on my computer, so I am just looking them up myself. But, I am unsure whether there is a land video? Also, were you able to keep the game going 45 mins or longer? Were your classes largee, max being 35-40? Thanks for posting. Keep planting those seeds, and being an entrepreneur of young minds!

Leo, I really like your work, but I have to question concerning why you use expressions like "more smart," and "more big," instead of smarter and bigger? Perhaps it's a personal choice, but I always considered "more smart" to be poor grammar even if they are not technically incorrect.

Hi Leo,

Another great lesson, cheers! Although, all the embedded videos won't play. Any ideas?

Hey, this game is fantastic, thanks a ton!  I'd love to be able to get the videos to play, but we're using PP2007 I think.  Do you have links to the videos?

Thanks Leo, an absolutely brilliant lesson... my kids have loved this so far. Sometimes when you're trying to simplify things to make it easier for the kids to understand it becomes easy to forget what an abundance of knowledge exists out in the world. Thanks for the reminder that the only boundaries that exist are those which we create ourselves.

And thank you Dave for those links - now that I have the videos the remaining lessons will be even better.

I'm glad you understand~ Many of my lessons, such as this one, require a significant amount of time researching. Perhaps too much time... but, so long as I'm learning during the process, I'm not bored and it's fulfilling to I continue to do it.

It looks like an awesome lesson. Do you make the kids with the ball switch off every round?

Yeah, for my larger classes, it was necessary to keep everyone engaged.

Your Konglish Powerpoint is one of the funniest things I've ever shown my kids, and many of them gave the exact reactions you demonstrated in your video.

Thanks.

I don't know if it's the same with everyone else, but I've had trouble with going back to the original screen after an answer is shown, so I've been just exiting and going back to the original slide that shows the points.

Feedback: I used this lesson in my after school class and the students were interested, but as I expected it was a tad too easy for my mid to high level English students. I think this game would be a perfect supplemental review activity for a more full introduction lesson to comparatives and superlatives.

One important thing I learned:

You need at least 3 or 4 teams or the point distribution does not work very well. For example, during the game one team had 60 points and the other team had only 10 points.

I have attached a comparatives and superlatives lesson I have used in the past (I don't take credit for this ppt.) which could be a useful addition to this game. Also, I have added the work sheet that I gave to the class.

Also, for those who want to know:
Comparative = 비교급
Superlative = 최상급

It was also too easy for my advanced students, but it was more of a fun lesson for them than an educational one. Thanks for the supplementary material and input!
