how to use のほうが

Asked 6 years ago

I just got back from my two week homestay in japan, and often I would try to use のほうが to say I like this more, or this is more fun, or this is more interesting, or this is more red. whatever.  however, often times when I used it people didnt understand me.  Sometimes they did, and I heard people using it a lot, but when I used it it didnt work

Was this due to pronounciation?  when is it not ok to use this expression?

Know someone who might be able to answer this question?

Hi!

I'd love to help you!  If you can show some example sentences with ~のほうが that you've used, I can tell if they're correct or not.

ほうが is used when talking about a choice or decision. For example if you were deciding to eat out with friends and deciding on sushi or pizza you can say 寿司を食べるのほうがいいと思います- I think sushi (path/choice of eating sushi) is good. You can just simply say 寿司のほうがいいと思います

Treat ほうが as a noun
