Superlatives of superiority and inferiority
Well, it is basically when you say ‘the’ then an adjective with ‘est’ at the end (e.g.: biggest) or when you say ‘the most’ then an adjective (e.g.: the most interesting).
So, how do we form a superlative in French?
Well, we use either ‘le’ ‘la’ or ‘les’ and ‘plus’ THEN the adjective required:
Adjective English: slow
Superlative English: the slowest
Comparative French: plus lent que (slower than)
Superlative French: le/la/les plus lent(e)(es)(s)*
