Hi
“Heavenly Stems” means “天干 (tiāngān)” and “Earthly Branches” means “地支 (dìzhī). “They are used to count time in ancient China. But now people seldom use them. You may just see them in some ancient books.

i will to come to china , how can i do for that?

what are the ‘Heavenly Stems’
‘Earthly Branches’??
I do often see these words and the related phrses.
What are they??

Hi
I think some basic Chinese is needed. Try to learn something that can help you in daily communication, such as greeting, ordering and so on. Maybe you can take some online Chinese lessons. If you are interested, just feel free to contact us.
