The Importance of the Second Language ~ 第二外語有多重要

A cat chased a mouse into a hole and sat outside meowing. After a while, the mouse heard a dog barking and thought “Great! Now the dog is here. The cat must be gone." So, the mouse came out checking the dog. As soon as he came out, he was caught by the cat again. He begged the cat “Before you eat me, would you tell me one thing? Where is the dog barking here just now?" The cat answered in laugh “Don’t you know nowadays it’s very important to learn a second language?"

有一隻貓追著一隻老鼠,老鼠躲到洞內,小貓只好坐在洞外喵喵叫,等待老鼠出來。過了一陣子,躲在洞內的老鼠聽到狗叫聲,心想狗來了,貓一定跑掉了,於是探出頭來看看,沒想到還是立刻被貓一把捉住。 老鼠向貓求情說:「在你吃掉我之前,我可以知道剛才那隻在叫的狗在哪?」 貓笑著說:「你難道不知道會說第二外語的重要嗎?」。


教授在教室黑板上寫著: 「I will meet the class at 5:00. 」(我會在五點來上課)
幾個剛到教室的學生看到留言,就開玩笑地把class的「c」擦掉,變成~ 「I will meet the lass at 5:00. 」(我會在五點會見情婦)
當教授回來看到黑板上的留言被修改後,他拿起板擦,又把lass的「l」擦掉,變成~「I will meet the ass at 5:00. (我會在五點會見驢子)
