Cantonese Classwork Review

Adrian doesn't speak much Cantonese at home anymore. That's why I have to send him to Cantonese school on Saturday.  He's the type of kid who hates all homework, especially Chinese ones as you can imagine. Therefore, I try my best to sit with him whenever I can to help him with his work. Today, there's a chapter in Chinese which I had to read with him.

Me: Ok Adrian, this is chapter 2.  I'll read a few words everytime, you have to repeat after me.
Adrian: Alright.
Me: Chapter Two.
Adrian: Chapter Two.
Me: Happily going to school...
Adrian:  What?!?  You silly mom!  Didn't you read the agenda?  That's not what we have to read!
Me: What?  I read it, it said "Reading: Chapter Two".
Adrian: Exactly, we only have to read "CHAPTER TWO!"
Me: Adrian, "Chapter Two" means the whole page, not the words "Chapter Two"!
