誰叫你不學好英文

之前我在AUE上讀到的一篇很有趣的貼文。某人在AUE上貼賣鞋子的廣告,因為這討論版是關於"英文語法"的,所以另一人回文糾正他的貼文,回得很有趣:)

原信:

What does it do now?

(specialized 表示過去,所以現在就不生產名牌鞋子了?)

sometime in the future they will be available, but not just at the moment
("You can expect"--表示的是期待一件未來的事,換句話說,在未來的某時候可以期待這廠商提供型號,但是現在可拿不到喔.)

but we've run out of upper-case letters.
(這是在諷刺他廠牌名稱第一個字母不大寫)

what??????????
(中式英文,所以看不懂)
