餵!

Postby Cabbage on Tue Jan 06, 2009 3:08 pm

我是一個中國美國,我可以講中國,但沒有這麼好。任何其他的海盜知道如何講中國?
Arghhhh!!!

My two youngest sons were learning some Chinese in primary school. Their first secondary school didn't teach it, but one took up Japanese. He is now going to study both languages at college with a view to going to China and/or Japan one day.

So, although this particular 海盗 doesn't speak Chinese, I have family members with a smattering!

I tried translating that; I got:

Which, translated back into Engrish, became:

The page steals into, and steals possesses your Lamb liquor.

I know you probably used Google Translator but in case you didn't and actually want to improve your Chinese, it should be:
我是一個美國人 = I am an american
我會說中文 = I can speak Chinese
中國 = China, not Chinese and 講 is not appropriate in this context. 會 is better than 可以 in this context too.
請問有沒有其他會說中文的海盗 = Are there any other Chinese speaking pirates?

Welcome, randoom! Clearly, none of us is qualified to be posting in this thread, but you've also got an interested audience if you're up to teaching some basics. :welcome:
