Chinese logic -55 长 短 | 高 矮 | 高 低

waveChinese 10th January 2017

Unless your Chinese language exchange partner is 高富帅 "tall, rich, handsome", best not to comment on their stature.


DIALOGUE  对话  duìhuà

[ 在客厅 ]

女儿:奇怪!为什么弟弟比我矮,但是手比我的长?

妈妈:不奇怪。他是男孩儿。男孩儿的手比较大。他很快就会比你还高。

女儿:好吧。妈妈,你看我们俩谁的腿比较长?谁的腿比较短?

妈妈:哎呀,别比了。你们帮我看看墙上这幅画。好像一边高,一边低,是不是?


TRANSLATION

[ In the living room ]

Daughter: It's strange. Why is my younger brother shorter than me but with longer hands?
Mom: It is not surprising. He is a boy. Boys have big hands. He will even be taller than you soon.
Daughter: Fine. Mom, look who of us has longer legs and who has shorter legs.
Mom: Oh, no more comparing. Please have a look at this picture on the wall for me. It seems that one side of it is higher than the other side, right?
