The Chinese word 小心 means “be careful” or “watch out”. It is often used as a warning or reminder to someone to be cautious or attentive in a particular situation. For example, if someone is about to cross a busy street, a friend might say “小心” to remind them to look both ways and be careful. It can also be used in a more general sense to advise someone to be cautious or aware of potential dangers or risks.
