A few characters to remember for those just starting out.
口 – kŏu - means mouth, for hopefully obvious reasons :) :0 :O 口 & smaller versions of that box are often associated with speaking when used in other characters.
门 - mén - means door and we’re just going to say that it looks like a door.
Combine the two, mouth & door - when you hear the door, you ask who is there.
问- wèn – to ask
Similarly, the left half of this character usually means a person. 们 men
And because I was looking for photos, I came across this gem. A door that converts into a ping-pong table. Excellent.
Ping pong is impossible to remember in Chinese so don’t even try. It’s 乒乓 pīng pāng.
You 打乒乓球 dǎ pīngpāng qiú，dǎ =to play, qiú = ball.
