BRIDGING THE LANGUAGE BARRIER WITH A NUMBER
How could New Zealand pay respect to Japan and say ‘thanks’ for their generous hospitality towards New Zealanders and our team during the Rugby World Cup? When we don’t speak the same language?
Well, how about with a number?
In Japan several numbers have double meanings, for example ‘26’ can be read as “fu-ro” meaning “bath”... and ‘39’ can be read as “san-kyu” meaning “thank you”.
