Signs

12 Dec

So many interesting and amusing signs. Thought I’d share a few.

Add for an English-language school. What does this have to do with learning English?

Gives new meaning to multilingual. The Italian word "lingua" means tongue.

Fleece Navidad...Get it? American Christmas music is huge here, considering there is not a lot of Italian seasonal music, but I don't know if non-Englosh speakers would really understand this pun. In Italian fleece, as in a jacket, is "pile."

I know this was a favorite from a blog I posted recently. Worth another share.

    Now, these signs are fun! Do we have fun ones here? I don’t usually read signs. Maybe I should start to! Merry Christmas!

      I have to say I am not certain I paid attention to signs so much in the U.S. Advertising is kind of wasted on me, but in dealing with a foreign language I am constantly trying to figure things out, so maybe I tune in more. Merry Christmas to you, too, my dear!

    That cat had been on the table obviously looking for food because they aren’t feeding it. I don’t know what it has to do with learning English either. The lingua sign is a great play on words.
    I think the “Fleece” sign is attempting to sell their jacket to American tourists!
    And of course….do put down your phone…unless of course you are calling your mother, she wants to hear from you.
    Lovely post my friend.

      Thank you! The “Fleece Navidad” actually is outside the Hard Rock Cafe so maybe they have “pile” jackets there. We don’t eat there. 🙂
