About the adjective "meilleure"...
I thought "meilleure" meant "best" rather than "better," which is the meaning it's given in the chart. In the sample sentence "Le meilleur élève..." is said to mean "The best pupil..." So again, why in the chart is it said to mean better rather than best, as in the sentence? Thanks in advance.
This question relates to:French lesson "Bien, mal, mieux, moins, peu (irregular adverbs)"

It is because of the article ‘le’ in front of meilleur which makes it ‘best’.
Le meilleur élève de la classe est Martin = The best pupil in the class is Martin But -
Marie est meilleure en anglais que Pauline = Marie is better in English than Pauline
Hope this helps!
Thanks for your reply, as always! It seems twice now I've ended up finding a different lesson that has the answer after I post my original question. Now that I'm in level B1 I see the full lesson, which explained it well. But thank you for responding and pointing out the difference. :)
