The Chinese word 门 means “door” or “gate”. It is commonly used in everyday language to refer to physical doors or gates, such as the front door of a house or the gate of a park. It can also be used in a more abstract sense to refer to an entrance or access point, such as the “door” to a new opportunity or the “gate” to a new experience. In addition, 门 is often used as a classifier for certain types of buildings or institutions, such as schools or hospitals, where it signifies a “department” or “branch”.
