Since we use comparisons a lot in both conversation and writing, we’ve decided to make this infographic to help you learn this grammar.

The basic structure for comparison 比 bǐ is, A + 比 + B + Adjective

For example,

我哥哥(A)    比 我(B)   高(Adj)。

(My older brother is taller than me.)

这个公园(A)    比 那个公园(B)    漂亮(Adj)。

(This park is prettier than that park.)

 

But in the real conversation, we may add more details when we compare.

You can add “degree,” like

“Wow! This one is MUCH bigger than that one.”

“I am just A LITTLE shorter than him.”

“He is 4 years older than me.”

You can add “degree” in the end of the sentence. So the structure is,

A + 比 + B + Adj. + Degree

 

For example,

我哥哥(A)    比 我(B)   高(Adjective)   得多(Degree)。

(My older brother is taller than me.)

我哥哥(A)    比 我(B)   高(Adjective)   五公分(Degree)。

(My older brother is 5 centimeters taller than me.)

 

You also can add “even more” when you would like to compare 3 things. So the structure is,

Structure: C + 比 + A + 更/还 + Adj.

 

For example,

我哥哥(A)    比 我(B)   高(Adjective), 我爸爸(C)    比 我哥哥(A) 更(even more)    高(adjective)。

 

We also have included some practice questions with answers in the end of the infographic.
