Very – Too


– 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.
