Knowing Another Language

Found a cute little story on the internet the other day, and since I’m a language teacher, I just have to share it with you here: Two mice sat in their hole watching Cat lurk outside. “I know how to make Cat go away,” said the first mouse. “How?” the second mouse asked in surprise. “Watch! Bow, wow!!!” barked the first mouse. Peering through their hole in the wall, they saw Cat running away in fear. “Ah, see the benefit of knowing another language!” Found at http://www.eleaston.com/

Fun with Chinglish: Keep off the water!

  Sign reads: “Keep off the water, caution danger.” If you consider getting wet as some kind of danger, then it surely is advisable that you keep your hands “off” the water. Or am I overlooking something that can be found somewhere in the less-than-knee-deep water which might cause harm …?

Fun with Chinglish: Don’t Break The Flowers

Yet another sign that has newly been put up on campus. It says: “Don’t break the flowers!” Let me draw your attention to the overwhelming amount of flowers surrounding this sign ;-). Yes, you really don’t want to break any flowers, should you be lucky enough to find some!

Fun with Chinglish: Do not let the you …

Fun with Chinglish: See your this one step (Winnie the Pooh)

A tiny notepad having this little message of Winnie’s musings: “See your thisonestep howwalk.” My guess is that they actually meant to say something like: “Look at this! Which step should you take next?” Haw Haw! Note: When posting anything in the Fun with Chinglish section, I don’t mean to show disrespect towards anything or anyone in any way.
