Friday, and a rough week it was with long work days. It’s the last day of the new year’s week, and hopefully the firecrackers at night will now draw to a close as well (it wasn’t really all that bad, though).
So .. ready for today’s Chinese lesson? Here’s ‘Happy New Year’ in written Mandarin with an analysis. Another case where a combined set of characters mean something special, or different from each one on its own.
I work tomorrow, but I will try to find something interesting to snap with my camera.
新 new, recent, fresh, modern
年 year; new-years; person’s age
