Not sure?

Try translating it into Chinese.

好好学习,天天向上。

This is an example of a Chinglish phrase: a phrase with English vocabulary but Chinese grammar.

While this kind of phrase might be understood by people who already speak Chinese, can British people understand what it means?

We went out on to the streets of London to find out. In fact the streets were so busy, you could almost say they were 'people mountain, people sea'!
