Too Much or Not Enough: Easy Grammar

By Jacqueline Schaalje


Too + Adjective

Too + adjective means too much of something.

I put too much sugar in my coffee > My coffee is too sweet.

The temperature outside is 35C. > It’s too hot.

Adjective + enough means it’s just right.

You can use this for questions:

– Is the soup hot enough?

– Yes, it’s excellent. Thanks.

– Are those shoes big enough?

– No, actually, I think I need a bigger size.

Not Enough

If the soup is NOT hot enough, it means it’s too cold.

So: too and not enough are opposites.

The soup is not hot enough.

The shoes are not big enough.

The room isn’t light enough.


Use the adjective between brackets () and complete with too or enough.
