    This is wonderful. My kids like these lessons very much. I want to ask about the usage of “比.” Can you give more examples to explain it in your upcoming Chinese lessons for kids?

  2. 2. Glendon says:

    “比(bǐ)” is a preposition, which means “than” in Mandarin Chinese. We usually use the structure: “A 比 B plus the aspect that is being compared.”
    For example:
    Tā bǐ wǒ gāo.
    He is taller than me.

  3. 3. Jeffery says:
