When we learn a foreign language, sometimes we find it helpful to use our native language to memorize the pronunciation of the foreign language. But sometimes, it is … funny. Here is a joke I read recently.
A man is learning Chinese. Here is his notes on the Chinese text.
shall by too dull doll by too jack won,
dolphin long can Jim shall by too low,
shall by too when dull low, doll car low,
dolphin long doll Ham Eason
The Chinese text is
xiǎo bái tù dào dà bái tù jiā qù wán
dà huī láng kàn jiàn xiáo bái tù le
xiǎo bái tù wén dào le, duǒ kāi le
dà huī láng dà hán yī shēng,
Have a wonderful weekend.
