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

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.

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