Simplified Chinese Version

 

If you are a Chinese AP teacher or student, there are many ways to prepare for the test. Adding Chinese idioms appropriately into the writing section is a good way to show a deeper understanding of Chinese. That’s why I made a few “Chinese idioms” infographics.

In this Emotion-Related Chinese Idioms infographic, there are five main emotions that we usually have. I chose three frequently-used idioms for each emotion. And for each idiom, I have included its Chinese character, pinyin, literally meaning, and actual meaning, along with an image as a memory aid. Teachers can use this infographic to teach and provide more practice for the students.

The idioms are listed below.
