Today, we will learn the Chinese character 小 (xiǎo) which means "small".

It's the opposite of “dà” ().

This character can be easily remembered by showing people how small your body is lowering your hands and dropping your shoulders.

Xīn () is "heart" and "xiǎo xīn" (small heart) means "be careful".
