What is a Chengyu? Intermediate PREMIUM
Take 5,000 years of linguistic history and ancient literature... throw in a few snakes, frogs, and fanciful tales. Mix in the odd digit for good measure. What do you get? Cryptic Chinese idioms. Now, we're not saying they're all as easy as 'horse horse tiger tiger,' but at least there's that one to get some mileage out of. Now listen to this podcast, and avoid being 'stupid lips stupid tongue.'
