Well, that was easy.

You just learned 8 Chinese words in the cutest way possible.

Real Fact:  These are the character meanings (which are the same across dialects and languages- I believe in Japanese kanji they have the same meaning)

In Mandarin Chinese they are (when spoken): Kou (mouth), mu (tree), huo (fire), men (door), yue (moon), ri (sun), shan (mountain), ren (person)

These are also all radicals (kind of like the building blocks) of other Chinese characters, as well as being characters (as you see above) in their own right.  Therefore, a person reading Chinese can determine some of the meaning behind the word’s character(s) by looking at their radicals.  

See, learning to read Chinese isn’t as difficult as it first seems.  

Even though it takes a long ass time to master.  (So so sooooo long).
