  1. Hi,

    The English translation would be more correct if you said, “Sister Lee is my neighbor.” Sister Lee is only one person. She can’t be plural.


    1. Hi Joe,

      Yeah, you’re right. “Neighbor” is supposed to be singular in this sentence. Thank you very much for addressing my mistake. I have corrected it. 🙂
