Learning to Read and Write Chinese: “Add Gas” or “+ Gas” or “加油”

January 18th, 2010 § 0 comments

Gas? Passing gas? ewww… My Car needs gas? You’re so close! What happens when you “add gas” to a vehicle? Your vehicle is filled with energy and ready to go further and faster. Right? Below are the two Chinese Characters that translates “Add Gas”.

加, jiā, to add / plus
油, yóu, oil/fuel (you can say it means Gas too, Gas = Fuel)

“Add Gas” is a term/slang I learned, among Chinese friends, to cheer you on and to encourage you to keep it up. Or…just  maybe…your car does need a refill 🙂
