上(shàng) and 下(xià) have the opposite meaning in the Chinese language . 上(shàng) is a verb meaning to “go to do something”. For example, 上班(shàngbān: go to work), 上课(shàngkè: go to class). 下(xià) means to “finish doing something”. For example, 下班(xiàbān: get off work), 下课(xiàkè: class is over). 王(wáng) means king and it’s also used as a Chinese last name.



Wǒ xìng wáng.
我      姓      王。

My family name is Wang.

上课: shàng

3. Answer: A

左(zuǒ) in the Chinese language means left and 右(yòu) is right. For example, 左手(zuóshǒu: left hand), 右手(yòushǒu: right hand), 左边(zuǒbiān: left side), and 右边(yòubiān: right side). 有(yǒu) is similar in meaning to “have.”

For example:
