  1. Yes, you’re right. The words “亮 (liàng)” and “黑 (hēi)” in these two phrases are antonyms. “亮 (liàng) light/bright,” “黑 (hēi) dark.”

  2. I’ve studied Chinese for two years, and I think it should be “天黑了 (tiān hēile).”

  3. Now that I’ve studied the Chinese phrase “天亮了 morning time/it’s light already” in this kids nursery rhyme, I’m wondering how to say “It’s getting dark” in Chinese?
