“Do you have water cows* in England?” – Enkhzul’s Wonderful English Volume I

“Whooahh, you look gentle woman.” – upon seeing me this morning in a white blouse and grey skirt, ready for my first day at work.

“You have shiny eyes…”

“I am proud of Japan. It makes me glorious.”

Upon seeing a photograph of England – “Oh England is wonderful country. The land is green and the sky blue like the Heaven.”

*It took several minutes, a vaguely bovine drawing on Microsoft Paint, and Google Translate for me to realise that by ‘water cows’ Enkhzul meant hippos. I told her that there are no hippos in England. She seemed disappointed.
