    What's wong with it?

    We are confident of preventing and controlling such outbreaks during the Games
    Dear Teacher,

    Is there anything wrong with above sentence I quote? Outbreaks were referred to the outbreaks of epidemic illness. Sorry, no more other context. Someone pointed out it is chinglish. That's it.

    Thanks in advance.

    There seems no particular error. It is good normal grammatical English.

    Anglika, thanks for your reply. A Chinese forumite, whose English is close to native English speakers' commented that the English of the sentence is laughable. But he didn't point out why.

    Ask why it is laughable - I would love to know

    I just posted my question about it in his thread. I'll follow it up. I am curious too. I'll stick his answer here if he responds.

    Thanks for your attention, Anglika. Have a good one there.
