The city is more noisy than the countryside. aussi + adjective + queas...as La ville est aussi intéressante que la campagne. The city is as interesting as the countryside. La ville? Cest aussi intéressant que la campagne! moins + adjective + queless...than La campagne est moins polluée que la ville. The countryside is less polluted than the city.

3 The comparative with adjectives and nouns 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.
