Never make these mistakes in Chinese 82

         Zhèshì wǔ wàn línɡ línɡ línɡ bá kuài qián.
False: 这是五万零零零八块钱。(50008)
          Zhèshì wǔ wàn línɡ bá kuài qián.
True: 这是五万零八块钱。

在这个多位数目字当中,三个“零”并列,汉语的表示法是只读出一个零,即“五万零八块钱”,去掉后两个零。
In a big number with more than one “0” juxtaposed, only one is pronounced. The sentence should be read as 五万零八块钱.
