知己 (zhījǐ) Extremely close friend/Bosom friend (Intermediate)

Dec. 18, 2009

知己 (zhījǐ) Extremely close friend/ Bosom friend   

The character “知 (zhī)” means to know and “己 ()” means self.

Example:

一个人会有很多朋友,但能够成为知己的却很少。  

Yī gè rén huì yǒu hěnduō péngyou, dàn nénggòu chéngwéi zhījǐ de què

hěn shǎo.

A person will have many friends, but just a few can become very close

friends.
