A note about grammar

 The two lessons below demonstrate how crazy grammar 'rules' can be. Most people learn that we always use the word "the" with superlatives (e.g. the highest, the oldest), but in reality the English language breaks this 'rule' on many occasions.

I'm not a fan of learning such detailed grammar rules myself; I prefer my students to focus on vocabulary. So don't worry if my "superlative without the" lessons seemed confusing to you. It wouldn't affect your score if you made a mistake when using one of these phrases.
