2 The comparative with adjectives and nouns
You can use the following expressions with adjectives to compare things and people. Make the adjective agree with the noun in gender and number. With c’est, there is no agreement. plus + adjective + que more...than La ville est plus bruyante que la campagne. The city is more noisy than the countryside. aussi + adjective + que La ville est aussi intéressante que la campagne. The city is as interesting as the countryside. La ville? C’est aussi intéressant que la campagne! moins + adjective + que less...than La campagne est moins polluée que la ville. The countryside is less polluted than the city.

You can also compare nouns using plus de, moins de and autant de before the noun. Remember to use que/qu’ to continue the comparison. Il y a plus de vaches que de canards. There are more cows than ducks. Elle a moins de chevaux que ses grands-parents. She has less/fewer horses than her grandparents.
