Comparisons of Equality using Adjectives & Adverbs
To make comparisons of equality we use the formula:
tan + adjective + como
tan + adverb + como
When using an adjective you need to be sure it agrees with the first noun mentioned. For example:
Girls are as playful as boys.
Boys are as playful as girls.
Chicken is as tasty as meat.

Let's look at some other example sentences:
