Découvrir la Californie
California is a state in the South West of the United States. California borders Oregon to the north, Nevada and Arizona to the east, the Mexican state of Baja California to the south, and has a coastline along the Pacific Ocean to the west.

Pour faire le superlatif (dire que quelque chose est supérieur à tous les autres) on utilise la formle : the most + adjectif long (2 syllables ou plus). Populated est un adjectif long donc : Los Angeles is the most populated city in California.
High est un adjectif court, il fait une syllabe. Pour faire le superlatif avec les adjectifs courts, on utilise: the + adjectif terminé en -est. Donc : Mount Whitney is the highest moutain in the US and in Redwood National Park there is the tallest tree in the world!
The Golden Gate Bridge is one of the most famous bridge in the USA. At the time of its opening in 1937, it was both the longest and the tallest suspension bridge in the world. It is 2,737 meters long.
