Your friend proposed: LET’S GO OUT TO EAT SOMETHING!

How about: 行 /xíng/ OK!

行 /xíng/ means TO GO, but it is used in an abstract sense, that something IS POSSIBLE (that it GOES through)

We find it in useful words:

行李 /xínglí/ A SUITCASE – by the way, can you believe that there is a special page dedicated to LUGGAGE HERE? 🙂

旅行 /lǚxíng/ TO TRAVEL

___ _ __ ___ _ ___ __

The character 行 has another reading (sometimes that happens, but it is quite rare).

The reading is /háng/ and we find it in the word 银行 /yínháng/ A BANK.

By the way, there is a page dedicated to BANK – HERE.

___ _ __ ___ _ ___ __

When you add 2x 土 /tǔ/ GROUND to the character 行, you get 街 /jiē/ A STREET.

风/fēng/ A WIND

十分 /shífēn/ EXTREMELY, TOTALLY – lit. 10 POINTS (10 points out of 10 points, that is a complete, total part)

我们去吃饭 / WE ARE GOING TO EAT

Pretty self explanatory I think :)

Pretty self explanatory I think 🙂

Just one thing – when words are written in lower case, it means that they don’t represent a proper word – for instance 日 /rì/ is a component “sun”, “SUN” – as a proper word – is 太阳 /tàiyáng/.

刀 /dāo/ KNIFE can be both, it can be a component like here but it can be used as an independent word as well – and because it can be used as an independent word, it is “A KNIFE”, not “a knife”.

It is a small detail, but it will make your life easier as you will encounter post like this one more often.
