明仔媽媽:明仔呀, 你都唔理吓你嗰個韓國來嘅交換生朋友嘅!

明仔:我要上空手道班嘛, 好難成日都陪住佢架! Hey! Kim, how are you?

Kim: Ming Jai, you went to your karate class? I envy you; karate must be hard.

明仔: Well, not really. I very easy to learn karate. By the way, you’ll go back to Korea next week. Will you miss me, and my mom’s cooking?

Kim: Of course, I will miss you. Your mom is such a good cook. You’re lucky! I wish I could live in Hong Kong.

明仔: Why don’t you come to Hong Kong after you’ve got your degree? My brother graduated last year and he wasn’t difficult to find a job last year. Hey, tonight we’re having pizza. Are you OK?

Kim: Well, I’m not ill!

陳:明仔所說’I very easy/difficult to do something 或 I very easy/difficult to find a job’ 是港式英語,有兩個錯處:句子沒有 verb,及用錯 subject、緊記 ‘Easy’及’Difficult’是指事物,正確的句式是 ‘Something / It + Be + easy/difficult’: ‘Karate is easy.’和 ‘It wasn’t difficult to find a job.’而 ‘Are you OK?’ 意思是 ‘你冇事嗎?’ 。
不如看看明仔媽媽怎樣幫他!

明仔媽媽: 明仔, 你D空手道可能勁過你D英文. Ming Jai wants to say:’Karate is easy to learn.’ ;’It was difficult to find a job.’ And ‘Tonight we’re having pizzas. Is it OK?’

Kim: Sure! I love pizza!
