American

Person from the USA
China méi guó rén
knob
ribbon top
knob

This means "American" or literally "American Person" in Chinese.

American Samoa

China měi shǔ sà mó yà
knob
ribbon top
knob

This is the Chinese name for the territory of American Samoa (formerly known as Eastern Samoa). Not to be confused with Independent Somoa which is to the west.

If you want just a general "Samoa" title, just use the plain "Samoa" entry, as it does not actually designate western, eastern, American, or independent.

American Soldier / American Serviceman

China méi guó jūn rén
knob
ribbon top
knob

This means "American Soldier" or literally "American Military Person". This can also be translated as, "American military personnel", or "American serviceman". Gender is not specified in this title, so it's appropriate for male or female soldiers.

American Football

Japanese only
Japan a me ri kan fu tto bo ru
knob
ribbon top
knob

This is the full/long title for "American football" in Japanese. It is "Amerikan Futtoboru" which is supposed to sound like "American Football".

American Football

China měi shì gǎn lǎn qiú
knob
ribbon top
knob

This is the Chinese title for "American football" (not to be confused with international football known as soccer in the USA). If you are a player or fan of American football, this would make a great wall scroll for your home.

The first two characters mean "American style".
The last three characters mean football or rugby (basically, game involving an oblong or ovoid ball).
The "American" adjective is needed in this title to differentiate from Canadian football, Australian rules football, and rugby.

American Football

Japanese only
Japan ame futou
knob
ribbon top
knob

This is a short word that means "American football" in Japanese. It is supposed to sound like an abbreviated version, "ame futo" which sounds like "ah-may foot-oh" (American Football).

There's not a great standard way to say "football" in Japanese, as the sport is not popular in Japan. Other Japanese terms for football can be confused with soccer or rugby.

North American Opossum / Possum

China běi měi fù shǔ
knob
ribbon top
knob

This is the full title for North American Opossum (aphesis spelling: Possum). The first two characters mean "North American" as an adjective. The third character means "carries" and refers to the marsupial pouch. The last character means "rat". You could say the literal translation is "marsupial rat".

Chinese opossums vary from the North American variety. If you were to use the last two characters alone, it may suggest the species native to China.

Mi Guk Kwan

American School
China měi guó guǎn
knob
ribbon top
knob

This is a Korean Hanja title, which roughly means, "U.S. School".

The first two characters mean "USA" (literally: Beautiful Kingdom/Country).

The last character means, "school", "building", "schoolroom" in this context.

This "Mi Guk Kwan" title is used to mean, "The American School of Tang Soo Do".

If you want this in modern Korean Hangul, just click the Hangul in the pronunciation box next to the Korean flag above.

Che Guevara

Latin American / Cuban Revolutionary
China qiè gé wǎ lā
knob
ribbon top
knob

Che GuevaraThis is the name "Che Guevara", as written (transliterated) in Mandarin Chinese.

Once revered by Chinese people as a Socialist rebel, he's now just a historical figure that school children briefly learn about in China.

This is because China used to be a truly-Communist/Socialist nation, and thus, other Communists and Socialists were heroes.

In modern China, with it's free-market economy, those former heroes fade a little.

We are not offering the "Che" character alone, as few would associate it with Che Guevara, so you really need the full name to be clear (minus Ernesto, which is his real first name).

A nice Chinese calligraphy wall scroll

The scroll that I am holding in this picture is a "medium size"
4-character wall scroll.
As you can see, it is a great size to hang on your wall.
(We also offer custom wall scrolls in larger sizes)

A professional Chinese Calligrapher

Professional calligraphers are getting to be hard to find these days.
Instead of drawing characters by hand, the new generation in China merely type roman letters into their computer keyboards and pick the character that they want from a list that pops up.

There is some fear that true Chinese calligraphy may become a lost art in the coming years. Many art institutes in China are now promoting calligraphy programs in hopes of keeping this unique form of art alive.

Trying to learn Chinese calligrapher - a futile effort

Even with the teachings of a top-ranked calligrapher in China, my calligraphy will never be good enough to sell. I will leave that to the experts.


A high-ranked Chinese master calligrapher that I met in Zhongwei

The same calligrapher who gave me those lessons also attracted a crowd of thousands and a TV crew as he created characters over 6-feet high. He happens to be ranked as one of the top 100 calligraphers in all of China. He is also one of very few that would actually attempt such a feat.

If you have not set up your computer to display Chinese, the characters in this table probably look like empty boxes or random text garbage.
This is why I spent hundreds of hours making images so that you could view the characters in the "american" listings above.
If you want your Windows computer to be able to display Chinese characters you can either head to your Regional and Language options in your Win XP control panel, select the [Languages] tab and click on [Install files for East Asian Languages]. This task will ask for your Win XP CD to complete in most cases. If you don't have your Windows XP CD, or are running Windows 98, you can also download/run the simplified Chinese font package installer from Microsoft which works independently with Win 98, ME, 2000, and XP. It's a 2.5MB download, so if you are on dial up, start the download and go make a sandwich.
