Chapter Objectives

Before beginning this chapter, it is important to recognize which skills and tasks you will be expected to learn to perform. Do you already have some previous skills or knowledge in these areas that you can use to your advantage? Are there any topics that you foresee being difficult?

  • Make comparisons of equality and inequality
  • Analyze a group of people or items and describe the extremes (i.e., tallest, shortest) using superlatives

  • Discuss cultural, geographical, and historical facts about Perú
