   During my practice I examined the group of children of 9-10 year old. The children have been studying English for two years  (the 3d form).

   I used the test to receive some results and to point out the level of the forming of grammar skills on theme “the degrees of comparison of adjectives”. The test consisted of 5 tasks.

   Read and translate


   Once there lived a Rabbit, His name was Bunny. He was grey and big, bigger than his brother Bonny. But he had no tail. And he wanted to have a long tail, longer than that of Mrs. Fox.

   One day Bunny went for a walk. He saw Mrs. Fox.

“Hello, Mrs. Fox”, he said, “Where are going?”

“I’m going shopping.’

“What are you going to buy?”

“I’m going to buy a tail.”

“But you’ve got a tail! I think it’s the longest and the most beautiful tail!”

“Well, but I want a new one, alonger and more beautiful one than my old tail.”
