zaochu wan gui

School is in full swing and teachers and students are settling into a new year of learning.

We often say that teachers and students who work really hard, 早出晚归 (zǎochū wǎn guī). Literally, this means “goes out early and returns late” which are characteristics of someone who works very hard.

We wish you great success in your studies and classes this year as you 早出晚归。
