  • Hello guys and welcome to this English course on adjectives.

  • In this video, I will be talking to you about adjectives ending in 'ed' or 'ing'.

  • These adjectives are very common in English and they often confuse students and learners

  • in general.

  • So please be really careful.

  • Listen very carefully.

  • Repeat after me.

  • Try and understand what the difference is.

  • Let's get started Adjectives ending in 'ed', describe a

  • person's feeling.

  • For example, 'bored'.

  • 'I am bored.'

  • Adjectives ending in 'ing' describe a situation or an event.

  • For example, 'boring'.

  • Let's take a sentence.

  • 'This film is boring.'

  • Ok that's the event.

  • It's boring.

  • And because the film is boring, I am bored.

  • That's my feeling.

  • I hope you get it.

  • Let's get a few more common examples.

  • For example, 'annoyed' and 'annoying'.

  • 'He is annoyed'.

  • That's a feeling.

  • 'The noise is annoying'.

  • You're now describing the noise.

  • Other example, 'confused', 'confusing'.

  • 'The student was confused'.

  • 'The English was confusing'.

  • 'depressed' 'depressing'

  • 'My mom was depressed'.

  • 'She watched a depressing TV drama'.

  • 'excited' 'exciting'

  • 'I'm excited.'

  • 'Travelling is exciting.'

  • 'frustrated' 'frustrating'

  • 'My dog is frustrated.'

  • 'Staying home all day is frustrating.'

  • 'frightened' 'frightening'

  • 'My little sister is frightened of the dark.'

  • 'A dark room is frightening.'

  • 'satisfied' 'satisfying'

  • 'My dad is satisfied.'

  • 'He has a satisfying job'.

  • 'shocked' 'shocking'

  • 'We were shocked by the accident.'

  • 'It was a shocking accident'.

  • 'interested' 'interesting'

  • 'I'm interested in articles.'

  • 'I'm reading an interesting article'.

  • Last example, two sentences, two different meanings.

  • Look at these: 'The teacher was bored.'

  • 'The teacher was boring.'

  • Now you really have to understand the difference between those two

  • because the meaning is not the same at all.

  • When you say 'the teacher was bored', you are describing the teacher's feeling.

  • Okay, that's how the teacher felt at that time.

  • He or she was bored.

  • But when you say 'the teacher was boring', you are describing the teacher.

  • Okay, the teacher made the students feel bored because he or she was boring.

  • Okay, so remember 'ed' is for feelings.

  • And 'ing' is to describe events, things, situations.

  • Okay let's move on to practice now.

  • I now have a few example sentences for you.

  • Let's have a look together.

  • 'Wow I am excited or exciting about my new car'

  • Now what's the correct answer?

  • What do you think?

  • Now remember 'ed' to talk about feelings.

  • 'ing' to describe things.

  • In this case, are you talking about your feelings or are you describing your new car.

  • Of course you are talking about your feelings.

  • So 'Wow I'm excited about my new car.'

  • Second example: 'Try not to get bored or boring when you

  • study English.'

  • Now what do you think are you talking about feelings are you describing things?

  • Of course, again, we're talking about feelings in this sentence.

  • 'Try not to get bored when you study English.'

  • Then, 'Math is confused or confusing to me.'?

  • Do you know the answer?

  • You are describing math to you.

  • It is confusing to you.

  • So math is confusing to me.

  • 'It was a thrilled or thrilling rollercoaster ride.'?

  • Now in this case, if you think for a minute, can a roller-coaster ride feel anything?

  • No it can't.

  • So it's obviously a description.

  • It was a thrilling rollercoaster ride.

  • And finally: 'My mother is disappointed or disappointing

  • in my English score'.?

  • Of course you are talking about your mother's feeling.

  • She is disappointed in your English score.

  • Very well guys.

  • I hope you did well and I hope you understand the difference between 'ed' adjectives

  • and 'ing' adjectives.

  • Let's now review the sentences together and focus on pronunciation.

  • Now listen very carefully and repeat after me please.

  • 'Wow, I am excited about my new car.'

  • 'Wow, I am excited about my new car.'

  • Good.

  • 'Try not to get bored when you study English.'

  • 'Try not to get bored when you study English.'

  • Good guys.

  • Third sentence.

  • Very good.

  • 'It was a thrilling roller coaster ride.'

  • 'It was a thrilling roller coaster ride.'

  • Very nice.

  • And finally: 'My mother is disappointed in my English

  • score.'
