Let’s get started!

1. High

We use high for mountains and for things which are a long way above the ground:

There are some high mountains in the north of the country.

The light switch is too high for a child to use.

2. Tall

We use tall to describe things which are high and thin in their shape (e.g. buildings, trees):

The tall trees by the river give welcome shade on hot days.
