Sometimes, during my lunch break, I’ll flip through the various English newspapers and magazines available.
Some of these magazines are quite interesting because they introduce the English language to Chinese teenagers in entertaining articles.
However, some of these magazines also teach the wrong English!!!
Here’s an example:
Thunder and lightening???
Lightning = 闪电 shǎn diàn
Lightening = 照亮 zhào liàng
The mainland Chinese subscribe to many of these “English” magazines and newspapers, you’ll be busy helping them with correct English grammar.
