[...] Learn “大 (dà)” and “小 (xiǎo)” Through a Kids’ Chinese Nursery Rhyme [...]

Wow! That’s a really neat asnwer!

Can you teach more pairs of adjectives like “大” and “小” in your upcoming Chinese lessons for kids?

“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.

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?
