Open the Door and See a Mountain – No-nonsense Chinese Idioms

I originally saw this image on reddit in r/japan and after reposting to Facebook my old Chinese teacher immediately replied with this peach of an idiom. Personally I love the simplicity of the characters, it’s easy to remember and the stroke count is tiny.

開門見山

開門見山(开门见山)

Pinyin: kāi mén jiàn shān
English: to open the door and see the mountain, to get right to the point

Examples

我们开门见山吧?
wǒ men kāi mén jiàn shān ba?
Let’s cut to the chase.

别绕弯子,开门见山说吧

Don’t beat about the bush, get to the point.

你能不能开门见山讲出来?

Can you get to the point?
