In Chinese, adjectives are more like verbs, thus in Chinese you do not say:  You are beautiful.. Instead you say:  You beautiful.   In order words you dont need the "be" word which in Chinese is "shi"

Beautiful = Piao4 Liang4

Very = Hen3

In Chinese the word "very" is much more often used.


Thus, you are beautiful  in Chinese would be = You very beautiful = Ni3 Hen3 Piao4liang5
