E-Women Sustainable Digital Empowerment Program

Turn your passion into a successful business. This program will educate and train the women to be self-sufficient and to be able to compete better in their profession. This program will also work with Telehealth and bridges the gap to mental and physical health to ensure that women stay healthy and progress to acquire more sustainability for themselves and for their offsprings.


Women are home makers and while nourishing and ensuring the well being of their entire family, they often leave their careers to focus on their homes. For most women, it is difficult to focus on their careers while taking care of their homes. This eventually makes them loose their professional identities.

Program Objective

The e-women sustainable digital empowerment program aims at supporting and empowering women with focus on the leadership style to let them fulfil their dreams and turning them into full-fleged women-prenups with many lucrative opportunities

It is a 3 months online business startup program composed of 12 modules. each module is one hour based on motivation, manifestation, goal setting with hand on demonstration and worksheets for accountability.

The Adjectives

The Use of Comparative Adjectives

Mastering English converstion

First we need to understand that there are three levels of adjectives. They are the adjectives, comparatives and superlatives.

Examples can be seen from the table below:

The AdjectivesComparativesSuperlatives
BeautifulMore beautifulMost beautiful
InterestingMore interestingMost interesting

Mastering the rules of the language

Learning the rules and culture of a language

Please also note that we have the regular adjectives and the irregular adjectives. The regular ones follow the order of ”er” for comparative and ”est” for superlative. The irreglar adjectives don’t follow this order.

Examples of common errors with the use of comparative adjectives;

Driving is more easier than walking. This is wrong! The correct structure is ”Driving is easier than walking”.

Other common errors are;

  • Peter is more smarter than his brother. “Peter is smarter than his brother” is the correct structure.
  • Reading with my glasses is more better than reading without my glasses. Please note however that we have some irregular verbs that we use ”more” and ”most” for as shown in the table above.

Confusion in the use of fell and felt

Fell is the past tense of fall while felt is the past tense of feel.

Master your vocabularies and avoid the misuse of words such as confussing the word fell with felt as shown in the examples.
Common errors


Paul has broken his leg, he felt from a tree. This statement is wrong. The correct statement is; Paul has broken his leg, he fell from a tree.

Yesterday I fell the pain after the surgery. The correct statement is; I felt the pain after the surgery.
