I found Avery doing this the other day. She has copied this Chinese sentence a few times. She asked me what it says, like I can read Chinese. I answered her question with a question- What do you think it says? She thought about it for a while.
That afternoon I found this in her pile of papers.
A few days later we talked more about this translation. The “flood” (tsunami) was in Japan, not China. “I know, but the writing is in Chinese, so this flood happened in China.” makes sense to her….
