Canadian Citizenship Application

Sounds so easy that I think I'll go apply for my Canadian citizenship right away in the province of British Columbia!

 

雖然不至於look, 但都可以笑得一餐。

呢個翻譯可以再請!

 


An immigrant from China is applying for citizenship in Canada. He is
to be interviewed by a Canadian immigration officer. He does not speak
English well and knows nothing about Canada. Therefore, he invited a
special translator to help him in his interview:

Officer:  Do you know who was the first Prime Minister of Canada?

Translator: ( in Cantonese) The officer asked you,
 Where do you usually go if you want to eat hamburger?

Man: (answered to the officer) Oh..... McDonald (the first minister of
Canada is Sir John MacDonald.)

The officer nodded his head and then asked the second question.

Officer: Could you tell me which province you're living in now?

Translator: (in Cantonese) The officer just asked
 you, What is the dirtiest thing in your nose?

Man: (replied to the officer in Cantonese) Ah..... Bay See (which
means nose dirt in Chinese) (The man lives in the province of British
Columbia, commonly known as B.C.)

The officer nodded his head again and asked the final question.

Officer: Do you know what your privilege is when you become Canadian?

Translator: (in Cantonese) The officer asked you, How
 does a dog sounds like when it barks?

Man: (demonstrated the sound to the officer)... Woe, Woe. (Vote, Vote.
One of the privileges of a Canadian is the right to vote.)

The officer told the man that all the questions were answered
correctly, shook hands with him and congratulated him that he had
passed the interview to be a Canadian citizen.

    这突显出翻译的重要性。所以下次,只要相当于考试的场合,就带个翻译。俗话说:Two heads work together is better than one.
