Today, let's learn a very important Chinese word : 好 hǎo, which means "good, well". This character “好 hǎo” is composed of “女 nǚ” on the left and “子 zǐ” on the right. Chinese combine “女 (woman or daughter)” with “子 (child or son)” to form a character for goodness and excellence. This character shows family’s importance for Chinese people. A Chinese man must find his greatest good in the possession of a wife and a child or a son and a daughter.
