Is it correct to say: I was better at history than my brother.
You can say; ‘I’m good at maths’, but is it also possible to say: ‘I was better at history than my brother.’
I know it’s acceptable to say: ‘He has a head for languages/ figures.’
But I want to focus on ‘being better in something than someone else.’ It is not meant condescending.
Would you be so kind as to shed some light onto this?
Mind you, I’ve never had siblings, I am an only child.
