Language Learning Blunders

Last week, I received a “teach yourself Afrikaans” book and audio CD.  I was pretty excited, so I jumped into lesson one and thought I had learned some things.  Thinking “let’s go impress our friends” I went up and said “Ek es me mouder”.  When I was asked what I was trying to say, I said that I was learning introductions, and I was introducing you to my mother.  Then a howling laughter came forth.  What I ACTUALLY said was “I am a mother”.

Language learning… I feel like a 2 year old.  Hilarious (guess you had to be there ;))!
