Abstract. We improve on Jarník's inequality between uniform Diophantine exponent $\alpha $ and ordinary Diophantine exponent $\beta $ for a system of $ n\ge2$ real linear forms in two integer variables. Jarník (1949, 1954) proved that $\beta\ge \alpha(\alpha -1)$. In the present paper we give a better bound in the case $\alpha >1$.
