The Chinese word “作业” refers to homework or schoolwork. It can be used in various contexts, such as when a teacher assigns homework to their students or when a student is discussing their workload with a classmate. In Chinese culture, there is a strong emphasis on education and academic achievement, so “作业” is an important aspect of the learning process. Students are expected to complete their “作业” diligently and to a high standard, as it is seen as a reflection of their dedication to their studies.
