Organisers of the Speak Mandarin Campaign has apologised for their neglect and typo of the Chinese word “read” in the phrase “listen, speak, read, write”. The phrase was used in a banner at its official launch yesterday by Minister Grace Fu.
In a Facebook post, “The Speak Mandarin Campaign regrets the erroneous rendering of the character ‘读’ as ‘渎’ at the Official Launch yesterday, as these are two distinct characters with different meanings. We sincerely apologise for the gravity of this oversight and will take steps to address this”.
What steps? Netizens are totally not appeased. Go and ownself check ownself la.
