Would you like to expand your vocabulary? I know a good way to do it.

1. Look at the sentence below:
It’s very cold outside…-20 and lots of snow.
Do you know another way to say ‘very cold‘  in English? I know it and I think you do, too.
It’s freezing outside…-20 and lots of snow.

2. Look at the second sentence:
After 3 hours of running, I was very tired. How to say in a different way?
After 3 hours of running, I was completely exhausted.

The adjectives freezing and exhausted are called STRONG or EXTREME adjectives.
