“亲爱的姑妈” Dear aunt

 

马克在中文课上学到,“娘”与“妈”一样,都是指母亲。有一天,他在校园里看到一位漂亮的中国女生。于是给她写求爱信,但忘记“娘”字怎么写,就自作聪明,以“妈”代“娘”,写下了:“亲爱的姑妈……”

 

Mark learned the words “娘" and “妈" in Chinese class.  Both words have the meaning of mother.  

 

One day, he saw a beautiful Chinese girl in school.  He wrote a letter to confess his love for her. However, he forgot how to write the word “娘", so he used “妈" instead.  Then he wrote down:  My dear aunt…
