  • 'Bored.' 'Boring.' 'Excited.' 'Exciting.' 'Interested.' 'Interesting': What do these words mean, and when do I use them?

  • What's up, guys? My name is Shane, and by the end of this videoyou will know how to use adjectives that end with 'ED' and adjectives that end with 'ING'.  

  • A lot of adjectives are like this: They have two forms, one ends with 'ING' and the other ends with 'ED'.

  • Okay, let's look at 'ED' adjectives first, and make sure you watch until the end of the video because there will be a quiz to test your understanding.

  • 'I am so bored.' What am I talking about here?

  • Am I describing the situation? No

  • Am I talking about how I feel on the inside? Yes.  

  • So that's why we use 'ED' adjectives to talk about feelings.

  • Another example: 'He is so excited. He is getting a new phone today.'

  • Am I describing the phone? No.

  • Am I describing the situation?  No.

  • Am I talking about how he feels on the insideYes.

  • So again, we use 'ED' adjectives to talk about feelings.

  • One more example: 'They are really interested in learning languages.'

  • What amtalking about here? Am I describing a language or languages? No.  

  • Am I talking about how they feel on the inside about languages? Yes.

  • So that's why we use 'ED'. It's really easy, right?  

  • 'ED' and feelings.

  • That movie last night was so interesting. What am I talking about here?  

  • Am I talking about how I felt about the movie? No

  • Am I talking about the movie? Am I describing the movie? Yes.

  • So, that's why we use 'ING' adjectives to describe something.

  • Another example: 'It's so exciting. He is getting a new phone today.' 

  • What am I talking about? Am I talking about him?  No.

  • Am I talking about the phoneNo.

  • I am talking about the situation.  

  • I am describing the situation of him getting a new phone - It's very exciting.

  • And one more example: 'He never goes out. He never says anything. He is a very boring person.'

  • What am I talking about here?

  • Am I talking about how he feels? No.

  • Amdescribing him, what he is like? Yes.

  • So that's why we use 'ING' adjectives: We use 'ING' adjectives to describe something or someone.

  • So in summary, 'ED' for feelings, 'ING' to describe something or someone.

  • Now, let's have a little quiz to test your understanding.

  • Question number one: I've got nothing to do today. I'm so 'bored' or 'boring'?  

  • And the correct answer is: 'I'm so bored.' 

  • Why? Because we are talking about my feelingshow I feel on the inside.

  • Number two: I've got nothing to do today. It's so 'bored' or 'boring'?  

  • And the correct answer is: 'It's so boring.'  

  • Why? Because I'm not talking about my feelings, I am talking about the situation.

  • The situation of having nothing to do is so boring.

  • Question number three: My new teacher at school is very 'interested' or 'interesting'? He has lived in many different countries.

  • And the correct answer is: 'My new teacher at school is very interesting.'

  • WhyBecause I am describing him. I am talking about his personality.

  • Number four: I feel so 'annoyedor 'annoying'? I just can't solve this problem.  

  • And the correct answer is: 'I feel so annoyed.' 

  • Why? Because we are talking about feelings.  

  • Last question, question number five: That workout was very 'tiring' or 'tired'?  

  • And the correct answer is: 'That workout was really tiring.'

  • Why? Because we're not talking about my feelings, your feelings, his feelings. We are describing the workout.

  • That is the end of the lesson today.

  • Remember, when you're using adjectives, always ask yourself:  'Am I talking about feelings, or am I describing something?'

  • And also, please remember that the rules in this video are general rules.

  • There are sometimes exceptions to the rules.
