“Pack a suitcase”


Recommended Posts

Thanks for all of these. What happened was, a Chinese lady was packing for a trip and she said "prepare" in English, so I guess what I got was her mistaken translation into English. (Or maybe she really meant to say "prepare.") I later checked in my dictionary for "pack a suitcase" but my Chinese friends said the phrase in the dictionary wasn't right. One of the biggest problems I have had is that what is in the dictionary very often is not what Chinese people say in real life. For me it's a real problem. (And the same is for my Chinese students trying to learn English.)
