With one syllable adjectives, we make the superlative by adding -est to the end of the adjective.
- The oldest person in the world lives in Japan. (old)
- That was the hardest exam I have ever done. (hard)
With adjectives that have two or more syllables, we make the superlative by adding most before the adjective.
