Won’t Live It Down For 19 Years

| Learning | November 11, 2014

(In my first year of university I took a Spanish class. Having studied Latin for five years I figured this would be easy. However some words which are spelled the same way in both languages are pronounced differently. In this class the teacher is asking us to each answer a simple question.)

Teacher: “How old are you?”

Me: “Tengo diecinueve años.”

(I use the Latin pronunciation which is a-noose.)

Teacher: *barely containing his laughter* “Um, I think you mean años (a-nyoss), not añus. You just told me you have 19 a**-holes.”
