1st Book Giveaway for Language-Learning Challenges!

Last week, the Round-Up Quiz featured questions that reviewed Chinese, Thai and Korean. We know it was more difficult than the past language-learning challenges, so we were more generous with awarding the points! :)

Here are the answers to those questions:

  • For the first question about the Taiwanese drama “Tie the Knot,” when Xiao Mei (played by Cheryl Yang) hears her client’s husband yell “搞了半天倩文要把婚事延后就是你搞的鬼” (“Gao le ban tian qian wen yao ba hun shi yan hou jiu shi ni gao de guy”), it translates to “After half a day, it was your doing that made Qian Wen want to postpone the wedding indefinitely.” 
  • For the second question about the Korean drama “Doctor Stranger,” when Jae Hee (played by Jin Se Yeon) says “니가 미쳐도 단단히 미쳤구나! 이딴 것 때문에 그 위험한 짓을 한단 말이야?” (“Ni ga mi cheo do dan dan gee mi cheot gu na! ee ddan gut ddae mae gue wi hum han jit eul han dan mal ee ya?”) to Hoon (played by Lee Jong Suk) when he proposes, it translates to “You are really crazy times 100! You put yourself in danger because of this (the ring)?”
  • For the third question about the Thai movie “The Library,” Jim (played by Ananda Everingham) leaves a note for Ann (played by Selina Wisemann) inside a book he borrowed from the library to show gratitude for all her helpful recommendations. He wrote, “ฉันขอบคุณมากสำหรับทุกอย่าง,” which translates to “Thank you very much for everything.”
