– Look at the two sentences. How are they different?
@ A: It is very hot.
@ B: It is too hot.
A is a simple statement- It’s HOT!
But B shows some difficulty, like maybe because it is so hot, I feel terrible. Or because it is so hot, no one is happy.
– Here are some more…
@ C: Lisa is very tall.
@ D: Lisa is too tall.
C is a simple statement. Wow! Lisa is a tall girl.
But D has a negative feeling. Perhaps because Lisa is tall, she hits her head on the ceiling. Or maybe she is so tall, she can’t get a date or has no friends.
– So remember, using too shows that there is a problem with the situation.
