Doubt in comparative form of 'bien'.

Bonjour Madame,

In the sentence given in the lesson as

"Ta téle est bien mais la mienne est mieux"

In this sentence although the comparative form of 'bien' has been used but then also ' que' has not been used;though here 'mieux'  is I think has been used as an adjective.

Mam,Pls guide the reason behind not writing 'que'

Thanks 

This question relates to:
French lesson "Meilleur, mieux, pire / plus mauvais, plus mal = better, best, worse and worst (irregular comparatives and superlatives)"

Hi Varsha,

you can either say:

Ta télé est mieux que la mienne. -- Your TV is better than mine. Or
Ta télé est bien mais la mienne est mieux. -- Your TV is good but mine is better.

-- Chris.
