只要她开心,我就开心。As long as she's happy, I'm happy. Zhǐyào tā kāixīn, wǒ jiù kāixīn.

 

开心 kāixīn happy, happily, to feel happy, to have a good time

 

Today's word was inspired by Thomas Doherty's video post, "How to say, 'Have a good time' in Chinese"  The individual characters literally mean, "open heart" which is a wonderful way to think of happiness really.  Good luck on the translations and have fun!

 

Translate 1 of these or write your own to get feedback on your writing:

  • I'm really happy to be here.
  • He doesn't seem too happy.
  • Why don't you give your grandmother a call. It makes her so happy.
  • I hope you have a good time!

Today Nov 7 2012 many in USA are singing one of the Democrats' theme songs:

   开心的日子又来了
   再次是明确的天空上空
   让我们再次唱的一首歌的欢呼
   开心的日子又来了
