I think I'm turning Japanese I really think so

OP could mean the teacher is Chinese, not necessarily teaching a class on Mandarin/Cantonese. And kanji usually have similar meanings in both languages.

Well if she doesn't speak or read it, then why did she even make that compliment? You're saying the teacher was just pretending to know it was Chinese when she was really wrong? She's lucky OP didn't say it was really Japanese because that would've been embarrassing for her.

Not all kanji are the same between Chinese & Japanese (some were simplified in Japanese etc.), but many are still exactly the same even nowadays. If the teacher saw just those kanji and there wasn't any hiragana etc., then there was no way to know whether it was Chinese or Japanese.

I'm Chinese, and if I saw basic kanji, I wouldn't be able to tell if it's Chinese or Japanese either. There has to be hiragana and katakana characters to tell the difference. Arigatou everyone.

Wow your "Chinese" teacher must not know Chinese very well! FYL!

Yeah, I know. Japanese have a lot of rounded symbols, Chinese has none.

Chinese and Japanese look very different although about half of Japanese characters are the same as traditional Chinese, the other half are squiggles. But every Japanese sentence is complete with both kinds, so time to find a new Chinese teacher.

1) The teacher teaches algebra, not Chinese. 2) It was kanji on the cover, not a sentence, so no hiragana there. Otherwise it would have obviously have to be mentioned and the FML would have no meaning. 3) Learn to read the whole story before leaving such comments.

We got thumbed down for stating facts, huh? How sad. Rottentomatoes, you're thinking of hiragana. The three scripts in Japanese are hiragana, katakana, and kanji. Kanji being originally a Chinese invention.
