How can we sense the beauty of the world if not by our eyes? Without sight, we would miss much of its excellency. So our word of this week is 看– ‘see,look,watch’.
看 is pronounced kàn/ kān
看（kàn/ kān）was first seen in Shuo Wen . The upper part is 手(shǒu ),it means “hands”, the lower part is 目(mù), meaning “eyes”. So the original meaning is shading your eyes with your hand and looking far away. When it means to see, it is 看(kàn), when it means to guard, it is 看(kān).
看门狗（kān mén gǒu）
House dog, watch dog.
刮目相看（guā mù xiāng kàn）
An expression used when someone has made significant progress and people can no longer look at him the way they once did.
雾里看花 (wù lǐ kàn huā)
Literally, it means watching the flower in the fog. Metaphorically it can either describe poor eyesight in old age, or it can describe situations when you don’t see things as they really are.
