20 More Hilarious Chinglish Signs Posted by on Dec 9, 2013 in Chinglish, Culture, Vocabulary

We’ve had tons of fun with Chinglish over the years here, and we hope you have as well. Studying a language can be difficult and frustrating at times, so once in a while it’s just good to sit back and have a good laugh. For all the times that Chinese people have misunderstood me or laughed at me for my silly mistakes in their language, I always just flip through my massive album of Chinglish signs and have a hearty laugh knowing that they fail just as hard at English as I do at Chinese. Here are a few links to past posts for you to get caught up. Bookmark them, share them with your friends, and laugh:
