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:

我媽媽比你媽媽漂亮。
我妈妈比你妈妈漂亮。
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

你家的廚房比我家的大嗎?
你家的厨房比我家的大吗?
nǐ jiā de chú fáng bǐ wǒ jiā de chú fáng dà ma?
Is your kitchen bigger than mine?
