14 The September   Issue

I learned a few things about making a fashion magazine by watching a documentary called The September Issue. In Chinese, it may be titled 九月號 (jiǔ yuè hào).

Chinese character: 九
Chinese character: 月
Chinese character: 號Simplified Chinese: 号

In English, each month has a unique name. In modern Chinese, months are just numbered first, second, third, etc. So September is 九月, the ninth month. Who says Chinese is harder than English?

 

Do you still remember the 號 (hào) character and its meaning? We talked about it in the Space Shuttle Endeavour (奮進號) post.
