Direction Words: 向, 朝, and 往 Qing Wen

Direction Words: 向 (xiàng), 朝 (cháo), 往 (wǎng).

In this lesson, User john658186522 asked for a more in-depth look at the difference between 向 and 往 and 朝 which can mean towards/facing etc in English.

These "direction" words can be tricky in Chinese, as sometimes they can be interchanged, but not always, so it's best to understand which to use in which context.

This is an updated video lesson of a previous audio lesson that can be found here, (QW0380).
