laughs about language

1 comment
I'm going through a strange phase of having to maintain excellent English when talking to the kids while learning basic spoken Chinese from their conversations with one another.

Speaking of English, here are some interesting things i've come across:
  1. Typed by a guy who was involved in an accident: "...Got hit...mere death experienced..."
  2. The kids read "I'll be" as "I got be". 
  3. It's interesting how "I didn't do it" or "It wasn't me" has evolved into "Where got?"
  4. I asked a kid to spell B-O-O-K, she got confused and wrote B-O-O-B. 
  5. Another kid reads YELLOW as LHELLHOW.
