funny

IMG_0657 I know Satoshi tries his best when it comes to pronunciation of words in English, but sometimes it is just so funny what he hears and what he says.

Once we were talking about Victoria's Secret and he said they sell "blahs" yeah?! I said, "bras", he said, yeah, "blahs".

And then another time we were talking about "pride" and he says, "plied"...

The funniest was when I was talking about "baguette", you should know that most Japanese call "baguette", "france pain (pahn)" and don't call or know it is called "baguette".

So, when I was talking about "baguette", Satoshi motions with two pointer fingers and motions out a square "bucket"...

Poor guy, hope he does well on the TOEIC test he's taking today...

I love your blog!
I am a Japanese,and it is also difficult for me to distinguish between `r' and `l'. It's more difficult to pronounce `r,l` than other words. I don`t understand why other people except Japanese can pronounce `r' well, because of muscle around the mouth or so?

R and L are definitely difficult for Japanese, Ototo.

Take care you two.
