上（shàng）is a single component character which means up, a word for direction. Wouldn’t you want to make progress in your daily life liking you are going up? So our word of this week is 上 – ‘up’.
上 is pronounced shàng.
The character 上（shàng）was first seen in Oracle bone script which means up or higher place. The horizontal at the bottom serves like a baseline, while the upper short horizontal means it is above the baseline, hence, up, upper or above.
