The Mandarin verb for "like" is xǐhuan. It is made up of two characters: 喜 (xǐ) and 歡 (huān). Xǐ means “to be fond of,” and huān means “joyous”, so the two characters reinforce the idea of liking something or someone.
Examples Using Xihuan[blockquote shade=off]Wǒ bù xǐhuan tā de tóufa.
I don’t like his hair.
Wǒ hěn xǐhuan xué guóyǔ.
I like to study Mandarin.
