Crazy Chinese Test questions


Not my class but thought this photo was pretty hilarious, and a little disturbing, reblogging from thirawr on tumblr

How would you have translated? What do you think of the teacher? Good because it's memorable or is this a little too much?

The third sentence, we'd better translate it as " 这家公司的老板被谋杀了 zhè jiā gōng sī de lǎo bǎn bèi móu shā le" or "这家公司的老板被害死了 zhè jiā gōng sī de lǎo bǎn bèi hài sǐ le".

 

This photo reminds me of my middle school English exams! We had the same task type in our English exams. haha...

Hah! Thanks for the improved translation.

 

Although, to be fair, I hope I never really have to use that particular sentence in real life.
