How can I make the sentence using "the (comparative) + the (comparative)"? I have seen these kinds of sentence a lot before, but when I try to use it, I don't know how to use it.
When making a sentence that compares two things with one another, one of the comparatives has to have an influence or impact on the other. For example, in this video he is saying the harder and faster you shake the jar, the sooner the cream will break down. It's almost like an "if you do this, then this will happen," statement. When creating these types of comparative sentences, typically you add an -er to the end of the comparatives. Here are a couple of examples: "The longer you exercise, the stronger you become." This sentence means if you continue to exercise you will get stronger as a result. "The earlier you get to bed, the sooner you will wake up." This sentence means if you go to bed to try to sleep earlier in the evening, the sooner you will wake up in the morning.
