I am learning Japanese and helping a Japanese person with English. (My English is not very good, but she still wants me to help her.)
She needed to describe someone's personality and she used "big person". And I didn't understand what she meant by that. I asked her what she meant by "big person" and she said she meant "broad-minded person".
So I told her using "big" for someone's personality is wrong. Then she asked me why, I told her it's used for describing something's size, but she didn't understand even though I told her several times.
So I wanted to tell her the word that Japanese people use for describing something's size.
I searched for it on the Internet, but there are so many words that mean "big".
So... I don't know which one to choose. I would be so happy if someone can tell me which one I should use. Also, I am really curious why she used "big person" instead of directly saying "broad-minded person". Is that a saying in Japanese?
