Grammar Lesson 16:

Comparing things with 比

In Chinese 比 (bǐ) is used to compare things or people and is used like this:

Subject + 比 (bǐ) + object + adjective

For example:

Wǒ māma bǐ nǐ māma piàoliàng
My mum is prettier than your mum.

To ask a question simply add 嗎/吗 at the end:

Subject + 比 (bǐ) + object + adjective + 嗎/吗

nǐ jiā de chú fáng bǐ wǒ jiā de chú fáng dà ma?
Is your kitchen bigger than mine?
