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 ;))!
