I got a chance to be a subsitute teacher for a writing class last night. The topic of the night was "Writing Descriptions". During the class, I asked each of the students to work on a translation practice. They all seemed to pretty enjoy themselves while working on that. Here is the original text in Chinese following an English translated sample:
Around 3:30 pm yesterday afternoon, a robbery occurred at the downtown First Federal Bank. Two robbers raided it and stole 3 million NT dollars. According to the police investigation, both robbers wore sunglasses, face masks and helmets. They were about the same height, around 175 centimeters tall. One of them had black straight hair while the other one had unusual dyed blond curly hair. Both of them had black jackets on and their pants were blue. The plump-looking robber wore a pair of white sneakers, and the sandals were worn by the skinny one. After robbing the bank, they made their escape on their motorcycle and disappeared round corner within 30 seconds. Fortunately no one was hurt in this incident. This is the second robbery case reported this year by the city police.
