My brother's job is an enginee

請教各位英語先進、前輩,這句英語對不對?如果是外國人會看、聽不懂,應該怎麼說、寫才對?謝謝您!

(中文意思:我哥哥的工作是工程師)

My brother's job is an engineer.

Update:

請教 Infinito - 無極 前輩,為什麼 is 後面要加 being ?這個 being 要作如何解釋,謝謝您!

    My brother's job is an engineer. (X)

    an engineer是人, 而job或work並不等於an engineer.

    下列寫法才是正確的:

    My brother's job is being an engineer.

    My brother's job is about engineering.

    My brother is an engineer.

    My brother does engineering for a living.

    My brother works as an engineer.

    The work of my brother is an engineer. (X)

    The work of my brother is engineering. (O)

    Engineer is my brother's job. (X)

    Engineering is my brother's job. (O)

    中文的工程師是人也是一個職業/工作,

    但英文不可以, job是事物, engineer是人, 兩者不相等

    being an engineer(作為工程師)才是與job同性質的「事物」.

    語言習慣就是如此, 中文與英文不同.

    If your brother's job is to fix cars, then he is a mechanical engineer.

    A mechanical engineer is a position, not a job.

    A job is what one has to do for living.

    你好

    你這樣寫沒問題

    當然你也可以說

    My brother works as an engineer.

    Engineer is my brother's job.

    Working as an engineer is what my brother does.

    Master Louis! Mechanical Engineering is NOT for fixing car. People who fix cars are called mechanics.
