I love listening to people who don't speak English as their first language. I like to hear what words they choose and how they use the words.
For example, most people who speak English would say, "my weight yo-yos" to say that it goes up and down, but my coworker the other day said, "my weight is a yo-yo."
Not the best example, but you get the idea. I also like it when she says Wednesday because she pronounces all three syllables.
So what have you heard that you liked or thought was interesting?
Most Helpful Girl
I had a foregin friend in high school. One day we were in maths and I was just looking out the window and she was eating nuts, when suddenly she turns to me and says
"I love penis."
me: what did you just say?
her: I love penis.
I burst out laughing and she frantically pulls my arm: Why are you laughing? why are you laughing?
I wipe my eyes: write down what word you meant to say.
So she writes down 'peanuts'.
Me: okay, you said this.
She reads it then looks at me: What does it mean?
I start laughing again and tell her to look it up on her dictionary. She does and her face turned to horror.
her: NOOOOOOO! I LOVE PEANUTS! PEANUTS!
lol, that still makes me laugh today.9
