Different between 优点 and 特点

Hi Chinesepod, is 优点 and 特点 meaning is the same? Is it can be interchange use?

Hi Eddie,

优 means good and 特 means special. So 优点 means advantage while 特点 means feature. Their meanings are very different so they are not interchangeable.

  • 他的 优点 是诚实 (honest)。
    这个地方的 特点 是常下雨。
