A very good sentence construction in Spanish to learn early on is the comparative statement. Here you can refer to something or someone in reference to something (one) else – whether is it a comparison on equal or non-equal. As you will see below, the constructions are actually quite easy, and soon you will be comparing things left and right in Spanish!
Comparisons of Equality
Tan + adjective (or adverb) + como – as (equal)… as
- Jorge es tan fuerte como tú. – Jorge is as strong as you.
- Ellos están tan aburridos como yo. – They are as boring as I.
- Ella baila tan bonito como su hermana. – She dances as well as her sister.
