The images give it away a little, so I’m sure you can guess what this idiom is getting at. Here are the individual character pronunciations:
- 谈 – Tan2
- 笑 – Xiao4
- 风 – Feng1
- 生 – Sheng1
So what does it mean?
谈笑风生 isn’t too deep of an idiom, it simply describes a jolly atmosphere where everyone is conversing merrily and chatting in a relaxed fashion, like a soft, jovial breeze blowing outwards.
Been a while since we had the chance to all sit down and chat, isn’t it?
