家婆 vs 外婆

Posted: January 15, 2008 in The Kids

So May is learning to speak Mandarin. On her own initiative! 

She constructed sentences to report to the teacher on the day’s happenings. 

Sample:- “今天我家婆来我家”. Which made the teacher scratch her head.

Actually, May was trying to say that grandma (maternal) was coming to her house (and not the mother-in-law).

Close enough – and full marks for effort!
