Dear teachers --

below are just a few of many quite embarrasing mistakes that unwary english students sometimes make

  1. she is a call girl -- instead of she is a call office girl
  2. she is a sporting girl -- instead of she is a sporty girl

The two examples--use errors given above are especially so to say dangerous because they look so innocent to most non-native speakers students

sure thing, you can give me more examples of this sort of course -- from your teaching practice

sure thing many english students will be grateful for such warning examples, not only me

if you please?

COFShe is a call girl

= She is a prostitute.

COF call office girl

I have no idea what that is.

She is an office worker.

Calling a female employee a "girl" can be offensive.
You would not call a male worker a "boy," would you?

COFshe is a sporting girl -

Seems ok to me (American English).
There may be a connotation that she likes gambling or she is someone who plays fairly by the rules, but that depends on the context. I think you meant one of these:

She is a sportswoman. She is an athlete. She is athletic. She likes sports.

i WAS SURE -- a sporting girl = a sporting woman = a call girl = prostitute

you can't be serious ... she is a sporting girl MEANS she is a sportswoman ???

isn't SPORTING GIRL JUST a euphemism for PROSTITUTE??

COFi WAS SURE -- a sporting girl = a sporting woman = a call girl = prostitute

Sporting has no such definition in any of the dictionaries I checked, including the urban dictionary (the latest slang). Maybe it is used that way where you live. There are many many slang words for prostitute.

dear Alphecca Star --

Also, please help me with the following

- although call-office girl is as you say never used by native speakers yet the sentence -- she is a call center girl -- is normal english??

- the sentence -- She is a sporty girl -- sounds ok by you? that is, the word SPORTY is fine here?

a thousand thankyou

OK, I hadn't heard this.

COF she is a call center girl -- is normal english??

Not really. "She works in a call center. "
