  • Hello, I'm Ray!


  • Today we're going to talk about the common English mistakes in Taiwan.


  • Again, it's time to collect everyone's Chinglish examples!

    又到了回收大家中式英文的時間 !

  • Common English mistakes in Taiwan Episode 2!


  • We had corrected 5 Chinglish sentences in the first episode. A lot of people liked it.


  • They said it was very useful and wanted to learn more.


  • So today, we also have 5 sentences for you.


  • I very like last episode

    I very like last episode

  • Wait a second, Lil Ray. It's not your turn yet...

    欸小瑞等一下,還沒...還沒有 cue 到你

  • Come back later.


  • Ok?

    Ok? 好好

  • Wait.


  • Today we're also going to take a look at 5 Chinglish sentences.


  • First, I'll have Lil Ray show you the example. While he speaks,


  • you can try to figure out what's wrong and how it can be fixed.


  • After the demonstration,


  • I'll explain why the sentence is wrong and how to correct it.


  • Ready? Let's go!

    Ready? Let’s go!

  • I eat already, I come already, I do already

    I eat already, I come already, I do already

  • I think everyone knows what "already" means in Chinese, right?

    大家應該知道這裡的 “already” 中文是什麼意思吧?

  • it's "已經". "I eat already" is the literal translation from Chinese.


  • If that's the case, it should be "I already eat".

    那如果是這樣(完全)直譯的話應該是,“I already eat”

  • But the most common one I heard is "I eat already".

    不過比較常聽到的是 “I eat already” 的這個錯誤

  • They are both incorrect.


  • The problem is the tense of the verb "eat".

    問題是在於 eat 這個動詞的時態

  • If you want to express "having done something" in English,


  • you should use "perfect tense".


  • If you want to learn more about perfect tense,


  • click the box over here, it's a video that focus only on explaing perfect tense.


  • So how to turn this sentence into perfect tense?


  • It should be "I have eaten", "I've eaten"

    應該是 “I have eaten”, “I’ve eaten”

  • Past tense is also okay for this sentence,


  • but you need to add the "already" to express the concept of "having done".

    不過需要 “already” 來去加上「已經」的概念

  • You can either put the "already" in the middle of the sentence or at the end.

    那 ”already” 這個副詞放在句中或是句尾都可以

  • So you can say "I already ate" or "I ate already".

    所以你可以說 “I already ate” 或者是 “I ate already”

  • No why, no why, don't ask.

    No why, no why, don’t ask.

  • No why

    No why

  • Zero why

    Zero why

  • "No why" is also a super direct literal translation of "沒有為什麼".

    “No why” 也是一個超直接的硬翻「沒有為什麼」

  • Maybe when you did something stupid and others started to question your IQ.


  • "Why?"


  • And you didn't have any excuses, so you would say "沒有為什麼".


  • In that case, you should say "No reason".

    這樣的話你應該要說 “No reason”「沒有理由」

  • That's the correct way instead.


  • But if someone asked you "Why?"

    不過如果有人問你 “Why?” 的話

  • here is the better response, you can say


  • "Why not?"

    "Why not?”

  • You'll get beaten up right away, but it's worth it.


  • This give you

    This give you

  • Take it!

    Take it!

  • Take it~Take it~

    Take it~Take it~

  • Most of the mistakes we talk about today are due to literal translation.


  • What's being translated into "This give you"? It's from "這給你".

    “This give you” 就是什麼的翻譯,「這給你」嘛

  • That's not okay. Nono~


  • The fans who paid attention to my videos should know

    有認真 follow 阿滴英文的小滴們應該知道

  • what to say when giving stuffs to others, right?


  • It's here. I already talked about it in 10 English Phrases.


  • Alright, when you give something to others you can say "Here you go".

    好,給人東西的話可以說 “Here you go”

  • The rain is big outside!

    The rain is big outside!

  • Oh! So many rain.

    Oh! So many rain

  • How to say when it's pouring out there? Never say "The rain is big" like Lil Ray did.

    外面雨很大要怎麼說,絕對不要學小瑞說 ”The rain is big”

  • Also, rain is non-plural, so you can't say "many rain".

    而且 rain 是不可數的,所以也不能說 “many rain”

  • "Heavy" is often used in this situation.

    形容雨很大,通常會搭配 “heavy” 這一個字

  • Such as "heavy rain" or "it's raining heavily".

    "heavy rain” 或者是 "it’s raining heavily” 等等

  • Another common way to say it is "it's pouring".

    還有另外一個很常聽到的用法是 “it’s pouring”

  • It's like the rain is so heavy as the water pouring out from the bucket.


  • Now I want to talk about an interesting phenomenon.


  • That is, if you've learned English in Taiwan,


  • you must have heard of the idiom "it's raining cats and dogs", right?

    就一定會聽過,“it’s raining cats and dogs” 的這個諺語對吧

  • And there are people who use this idiom to describe heavy rain.


  • Ok, there is nothing wrong about it.

    Ok 這個諺語是正確的

  • But I've rarely actually heard of any native speakers who use it.


  • I think it might be like


  • saying


  • "The rain is torrential out there."


  • It's kind of weird.


  • We didn't look up


  • for the pronunciation


  • of the idiom, so I'm not sure if I said it right.


  • I have to write homework. I hate all my teachers.

    I have to write homework. I hate all my teachers

  • Last one, for those who are still students.


  • "寫功課" is definitely not "write homework"

    「寫功課」絕對不是 write homework

  • or "make homework"!

    也更不是「做功課」make homework!

  • There are two English verbs you can use: "do" or "finish".

    寫功課的話,英文的動詞可以用兩個字: do 或者是 finish

  • So you can say "I have to do my homework".

    所以你可以說 I have to do my homework

  • or "I have to finish my homework".

    或者是 I have to finish my homework

  • Alright! Let's review today's key points with Lil Ray!


  • I eat already

    I eat already

  • I have eaten / I already ate 我已經吃了

    I have eaten / I already ate 我已經吃了

  • No why

    No why

  • No reason 沒有為什麼

    No reason 沒有為什麼

  • This give you

    This give you

  • Here you go 這給你

    Here you go 這給你

  • The rain is big!

    The rain is big!

  • It's raining heavily! / It's pouring! 外面雨下的很大

    It’s raining heavily! / It’s pouring! 外面雨下的很大

  • Write homework

    Write homework

  • Do homework / Finish homework 寫功課

    Do homework / Finish homework 寫功課

  • Good job! Learning through mistakes is an efficient way, right?

    Good job! 透過錯誤來學習是一個很有效率的方式吧!
