-ed/-ing adjectives

Hello, everybody:

Welcome to this new post where we are going to begin revising and practising a grammar point:  -ed/-ing adjectives. These adjectives are confusing and students usually have difficulties using them properly. 

Remember we use -ed adjectives to talk about feelings:
I am frightened

Remember we use /-ing adjectives to talk about the situations that cause the feelings.
That movie is frightening!

Activity:You are going to check if you really know which form is the most suitable in the following online exercise. Click HERE
