"My elder brother is not a lazy fellow."

Translation:Anh trai của tôi không phải là một nghiên cứu sinh lười biếng.

The use of "fellow" in these example sentences to mean something like "chap, guy" seems wrong. Isn't this "fellow" in the sense of "researcher/PhD candidate"? These sentences seem to miss the point.


It is used in the sense of PhD candidate (nghiên cứu sinh = researcher).
