English (with American translation)

I received my first language lesson yesterday. The first picture above is a mobile phone (for those in the states say the following very slower having a hard time wrapping your lips around 'moe-bye-el') [American translation: cell phone]. today we when to Canterbury Cathedral where the above sign was to be found. as a tourist trap they translated the English phrase "way out" into three other languages (email me if you want to know the three :) ). finally, on the way home i asked if i needed to pay first for the 'gas' (oops). after some blank looks i ask about some petrol [American translation: gas]. today's highlight was a guided tour of the cathedral. the theologian impressed the guide with the depth of her knowledge :) dinner time!
