You can take some Chinese lessons online. It is more convenient. By the way, who can show me more Chinese words about directions?

南 is the Chinese word for south, 东 is the Chinese word for east and 西 is the Chinese word for west. These are the words I learned from my Chinese teacher when I began to learn Chinese and take some lessons three months ago.

Wow this is a great resource.. I’m enjoying it.. good article
