    problem

    Are both of these sentences correct?

    "He is twice as big as me."
    "He is twice bigger than me."

    Thanks a lot.

    Only the first sounds standard to me.

    The first seems correct to me. I've come across "he is twice as big as I am." too.
    And what do you mean saying "big"? Do you mean he is twice as tall as you are? Or he is twice as old as you are.
