So and such

 

We use so + adjective/ adverb:

soは形容詞や副詞と使います。

so stupid, so quick, so nice, so quickly

 

 I didn’t like the book. The story was so stupid.

 I like Liz and Joe. They are so nice.

 

We use such + noun:

suchは名詞と使います。

such a story, such people

 

We also use such + adjective + noun

 

such a stupid story, such nice people

 

 I didn’t like the book. It was such a stupid story.

 I like Liz and Joe. They are such nice people.

So and such make the meaning stronger:

 

 It’s a beautiful day, isn’t it? It’s so warm.

 It’s difficult to understand him because he talks so quickly.

 

You can use sothat:

 

 The book was so good that I couldn’t put it down.

 I was so tired that I fell asleep in the armchair.

 

We usually leave out that:

 

 I was so tired I fell asleep.

 

 It was a great holiday. We had such a good time.

I don’t usually get up so early.
