is it: anata no nihongo wo watashi ha hou ga ii. ?
i'm afraid of instead of saying 'you're japanese is better than mine', i'm going to say, 'my japanese is better than yours'.

"Watashi no nihongo yori anata no nihongo no hou ga ii."
Just remember that 'hou' always goes with the noun that's better (or bigger, or taller, or whatever adjective you're using), and 'yori' has basically the opposite meaning of 'hou'. The [very] literal meaning of these sentences is something like, "Rather than my Japanese, the way of your Japanese is good."
This page might help you out here. In fact, that entire site is pretty darn useful.
EDIT: Oops! At first I made exactly the blunder you were trying to avoid! ^^; I've fixed it.
