If the adjective ends in a single vowel...

This rule does not work with amable.  If you do an exercise on superlatives with a question on "amable" before you read the lesson on -co, -go, -ble, and -z endings you will make a mistake. Perhaps this lesson should should point out that -ble endings  are an exception.  

Of course I will always remember the rule now after spending some time trying to discover why  "amablísimos" was wrong.

Hola Alastair

I've just added a note on that chapter about "single vowels" saying that the ending -ble, although ending in a single vowel, it's an exception. 

Thanks for highlighting this. Very useful.

Saludos cordiales
