In this post, I’ll introduce seven Chinese words and one sentence pattern to you to help you understand the humor you’ll read afterwards. Since it’s a classroom humor, some of the words are related to student life. Now let’s get started:
|Simplified Chinese||Traditional Chinese||Mandarin Pinyin||English Definition|
|口吃||口吃||kou3 chi1||to stammer; to stutter|
|监考||監考||jian1 kao3||to proctor (an exam)|
|看见||看見||kan4 jian4||to see; to catch sight of|
|作弊||作弊||zuo4 bi4||to cheat (in an exam)|
|生气||生氣||sheng1 qi4||to get angry|
|指着||指著||zhi3 zhao1||to point one’s finger at|
I’ve written the humor in simple sentence patterns for beginner level readers. Sentence pattern “有 ….” appeared five times in the context. Four out of five times it is used as the equivalent counterpart of “There is (are) …” pattern in English. Only one time it is used as the meaning of “ have (has)“.
Now, try your best to read the humor all by yourself without look up. After your reading, please tell me which “有” is used as “have (has)“. 加油!

There was a teacher who has a stammer.
One day, he was monitoring an exam attended by fourty students.
When he saw a student was cheating, he became very angry.
He pointed at that student and called out:” Yo… yo… yo… yo… you got the nerve to cheat?! Stand up now!”
Upon hearing that, five students stood up.
