In English there are 2 patterns for adjectives:
1. verb be + adjective
I’m interested in English movies.
English movies are usually very interesting.
2. adjective + noun
It’s such an interesting class.
She is such an interesting woman.
3. -ed or -ing
There is a group of adjectives that can end in –ed or –ing. However, the meaning of the adjective changes depending on the ending. For example, interested/interesting, tired/tiring, confused/confusing, surprised/surprised, etc.
We use the –ed ending to talk about how we feel. Adjectives ending with –ed are used primarily with nouns that are people or animals.
We use the –ing ending to describe a noun or when the noun is the reason for the feeling. Basically, the –ing adjective shows why a person is feeling a certain way. Adjectives ending in –ing are used primarily with nouns that are things.
