What do you like most for breakfast? What do you like most for dinner? ShaoLan and Jesse talk about some of the things that they like most as a way to introduce the Chinese word for “most.” Can you guess what Jesse’s favourite breakfast is? How about ShaoLan’s favourite breakfast? Once you learn this word in Chinese then it opens up a whole new way of describing physical objects, as well as expressing personal opinions!
The Chinese word for “most” is 最 which actually works like an “-est” in English. When you want to talk about the “best,” “biggest,” “smallest,” “longest,” “shortest” etc then you use this word followed by the respective adjective. For example, 最好 is “most good” or “best,” while “最大” is “most big” or “biggest”!
