淋浴 - lín yù – shower

The first character is 淋, lín meaning to pour. It is pronounced lin with a 2nd or rising tone.

The second character is 浴, yù meaning to bath or bathe. It is pronounced you also with a 4th or falling tone. We learnt this character yesterday in the word 沐浴 - mù yù meaning bath

Together these characters mean a shower.
