One thing is to say ” I’t’s very hot in this room” and another one is to say “It’s boiling in this room”. The second one is stronger and more powerful than the first one. BY using these strong adjectives, your vocabulary level goes up so they are very helpful!

Remember that with “normal” adjectives you can use modifiers such as “very, really, incredibly, extremely, fairly, etc” but with strong adjectives we can only say “Really” or “Absolutely”. So we can say, “I’m absolutely exhausted today”, but not “I’m very exhausted today”.
