465 – More Than, Better Than, and Prefer



This week, I was talking with one of my students about preferences and interesting discussion came up. Basically, we were trying to figure out the difference between and usage of Prefer, More Than, Better Than. I think this is a tough point for a lot of English learners to master, so for today’s English lesson, let’s have a look at using these words and phrases.
