Enough and too
They can both be used with adjectives, adverbs and nouns… But there are a few grammar rules you need to remember to use them correctly!
Too and enough indicate a degree (or amount) in English sentences.
too = more than necessary
enough = the necessary amount
not enough = less than necessary
I’m too hungry to concentrate!
You’re good enough to start a conversation in English!
I haven’t got enough time.
Too and enough. Both of these words indicate a degree. They give us more information about an adjective or an adverb or a noun.
I’m too hungry to concentrate!
So, here ‘too’ means that it is more than what is wanted or what is needed. So, it’s usually a negative thing! You are more hungry than you want to be! This is really frustrating for you because you can’t concentrate!
You’re good enough to start a conversation in English!
So here, ‘enough’ tells us that it is the amount that we want or we need. It’s the right amount and this is a positive thing! You have what is needed, you are good enough.
You’re not good enough!
Ouch! That is really mean!
Ouch! That is really mean! ‘Not enough’ means that it is less than the amount that you want or you need. It’s a really negative thing. It’s a pretty mean thing to say.
So, let’s look at the structures for each of these words with adjectives and adverbs first.
Too + adjective/adverb
So, ‘too’ comes before an adjective or an adverb.
He’s driving too fast.
You’re speaking too quickly for me.
He’s too old to drive.
adjective/adverb + enough
I’m strong enough to lift those boxes.
It’s warm enough to go for a swim.
He is entertaining enough to perform on stage.
You’re here often enough, you might as well live here!
