076. There is nothing as…as…

 

I. EXAMPLES:

There is nothing as exciting as meeting an old friend unexpectedly.

For me, there is nothing as enjoyable as reading a novel on the grass.

There is nothing as pleasant as spending a weekend in the countryside.

There is nothing as refreshing as having a good rest.

II. DIALOGUES:

A: Do you cook for yourself?

B: Yes, I do, but it’s not the same as what my mother makes.

A: I know what you mean. There’s nothing as good as home cooking.

B: My mom’s given me some recipes, but when I make them they don’t come out the same as when she cooks.

A: Maybe you should just ask her to cook for you.

B: No, I’d rather try and learn myself.
