"복숭아는 고구마보다 맛있습니다."

Translation:Peaches are more delicious than sweet potatoes.

English speakers would say "taste better" in almost every case.


Agreed. It's not good to teach 맛있다 as delicious. It's done because it is easier to teach Korean kids to speak one word over two words, but it's not accurate since all they can express is either DELICIOUS or NOT DELICIOUS (or yucky). That's a spectrum for a food snob!


Indeed. And let's not get started on the abusive use of "very delicious". Delicious is already at the end of the spectrum.
