  1. 你小时候是一个淘气的孩子吗?
    When you were small, were you a naughty child?

    儿子:“爸爸,我有一个问题。”
    Son: “Daddy, I have a question.”

    父亲:“什么问题?”
    Father: “What is the question”?

    儿子:“你有几个名字?”
    Son: “How many names do you have?”

    父亲:“我只有一个名字呀!”
    Father: “I only have one name.”

    儿子:“不要骗我!你不是还有一个名字,叫‘淘气’吗?”
    Son: “Do not lie to me! Don’t you have another name, “Naughty”?

    父亲:“淘气?谁说的?”
    Father: “Naughty”? Who says so”?

    儿子:“今天上课的时候,老师在同学面前说我是‘淘气’的孩子。”
    Son: “When I was in class today, teacher said in front of my classmates
    that I was the son of “Naughty.”

    1. Hi ΒωωνΚυαν,
      Great! I think you have all the meaning correct.

      By the way, ‘淘气’的孩子 which the teacher want to mean is “a naughty boy/kid”. However, the son interpreted it as “a Naughty’s boy/kid”. The son made the naughty a noun ( a name, which he thought is his father’s name ) instead of an adjective.

  2. 你好敏敏,

    我给你翻译(不发音哈哈)你小中文故事。
    你会说荷兰话吗

    Are you sometimes a naughty child?

    son: “Papa, can I ask you something?”
    father: “What question?”
    son: “How many names do you have?”
    father: “He, I only have one name!”
    son: “Do not deceive me, don’t you have yet an other name,
    called mischievous?”
    father: “Mischievous, who told you that? ”
    son: “Today at school the teacher said in front of all
    the schoolmates that I am mischievous ‘s sun”

    万事如意

    陆蓝克

    1. 陆蓝克, 你好。
