Japanese 213 - Telling it's too much with すぎる

In the last lesson we've learned the following sentence:

It would sound more natural if we'd use the words too much instead of a lot here. We can do this in Japanese by adding the verb ぎる to the stem of the verb.

Note also how we used the loanword アルコオル here instead of お酒, which is less ambiguous than お酒, as お酒 is also used to refer to rice wine in particular.

You can also use ぎる in combination with い-adjectives and な-adjectives, by simply replacing the -い or -な ending with the verb ぎる.
