Confusing pairs for chinese students
My chinese friend Mr. Wang told me one day he thought my doctor was beautiful.
I scratched my head and wondered what he really meant.
Since I have no doctor here in Beijing , I assumed he meant something else.
Mr Wang noticed the confused look on my face and then he added that she looked more chinese than no-chinese.
At last, I realised he meant my Daughter.
To many chinese ears DOCTOR and Daughter sound similar.
Another friend asked me if I could ride a house!
I quickly realised this time he meant a horse.
Anyone interested, then I can supply more funny problems caued by difficulties in listening.
I leave you with the following: in a local Beijing park which has a beautiful lake divided by five arches , I read a notice that read THE EXIT IS UNDER the Bridge.
