Best Friends

China zhì jiāo
Best Friends

This an alternate way to say best friend in Chinese.<br><br> The first character can mean "most," "extreme" or "best." The second character means "making friends" or "building friendship." There's sort of a suggestion with the second character that fate caused you to intersect in life and become friends (that character can mean intersection in some context).<br><br> This can also mean "most intimate friend," "very good friend of long standing," or "closest friend."

Best Friends / Buddies

China qīn yǒu
Japan shin yuu
Best Friends / Buddies

This is the Japanese way to say "best friend."<br><br> The first character can mean "relative" or sometimes "parents." The second character means "friend."

It's a good meaning in Chinese but it's not quite the same as "best friends."

China zhì yǒu
Best Friends / Closest Friend

This one way to say best friend in Chinese.<br><br> The first character can mean "most," "extreme" or "best."<br> The second character means "friend" or "friends" (plural forms work differently in China).<br><br> Can also be translated as "close friend" or "most intimate friend."

No Worries

China fàng xīn
Japan houshin
No Worries

My Australian friends always say "No worries mate." It's caught on with me, though I drop the "mate" part since it confuses my fellow Americans.<br><br>If you would like to express the idea of "no worries" this is the best and most natural way to say it in Chinese.<br><br>The characters you see to the left can be translated as "put your mind at rest" or "to be at ease." You could literally translate "no worries" but it doesn't "flow" like this simple Chinese version.<br><br>For your info, the first character means to release, to free, to let go, to relax, or to rest. The second character means your heart or your mind.<br><br>Note that in Japanese and Korean, this holds the similar meaning of "peace of mind" but can also mean absentmindedness or carelessness depending on context.

All of our calligraphy wall scrolls are handmade.

When the calligrapher finishes creating your artwork, it is taken to my art mounting workshop in Beijing where a wall scroll is made by hand from a combination of silk, rice paper, and wood.
After we create your wall scroll, it takes at least two weeks for air mail delivery from Beijing to you.

Allow a few weeks for delivery. Rush service speeds it up by a week or two for $10!

When you select your calligraphy, you'll be taken to another page where you can choose various custom options.

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.
