Comparative (as ~ as)

I'm as tall as my sister.

Japanese name: 比較級 (hikaku-kyuu)

One thing to keep in mind when teaching this grammar point is that the negative sentence has an implicit comparison. For example, "I am not as tall as my sister" implies that your sister is the tallest of the two people being compared.
