Long explanation:

The Mandarin Chinese grammatical pattern '越...越...' (yuè...yuè...) is used to show that as one situation or condition intensifies, another situation or condition intensifies simultaneously. It is equivalent to saying 'the more... the more...' in English. This phrase helps to link two changes that occur simultaneously and correspond with each other proportionately.
