Dear Leon, It implies that you should not give up or that you should keep on your good work despite of what might happened or what might happen. Someone who keeps his/her chin up (in a literally sense) is usually not depressed or feels being inferior. So you could say: “Learning English will never be an easy job but keep your chin up. You will improve very soon as long as you work hard enough.” Best regards, Paul

你好 Leon。这是英文里一句习语表达。"Keep your chin up" 意思是 “别伤心,别有遗憾,继续保持积极的态度“。如果发生了一些对你比较心疼的事情,我们经常会建议你: keep your chin up =) 希望我回答了你的问题。如果还有问题,请别怕问 =)

'To keep your chin up' means to remain positive when things are going wrong. For example, if someone you know has just failed an exam or a job interview you can say 'keep your chin up'. Also, if somebody has broken up with a boyfriend/girlfriend you can say 'keep your chin up'. In sport, if you have just lost a match you can say 'keep your chin up.' Or even if you are in the middle of a game and you are losing you can say it. Keep your chin up is often shortened to 'chin up.' Of course the origin of the phrase is that if your chin is up then you are looking forward in a positive way, rather than looking down at the floor when something bad happens.
