Found this on Bing and I’m happy I did. Interesting article.

I know the antonym of 敌人 is 朋友 (péng you). In English, it means friend. My written Chinese is pretty good, but I am poor at spoken Chinese. Is it helpful to improve my spoken Chinese if I study Chinese online? Does it work?

I started to study Chinese online in last year and I love to remember Chinese characters together with their antonyms. Can someone tell me what is the antonym of “敌人?” Thanks a lot!
