Otra de las seguidores de Ziggurat nos ha querido divertir con sus anécdotas vividas con el inglés para el concurso literario:
I was working in a mall selling mobile phones two years ago when, one day in Summer, a couple from Switzerland came to the shopping centre to buy a phone. They could speak French and English very well, they could change the language without any problems!
First, I spoke to them in French because I speak French better than English. But, suddenly, they changed the language and spoke to me in English. So, I began to talk in English… but with French pronunciation! When I realized it I changed the language too, but then speaking in French with English pronunciation!
The couple didn’t know what was happening! They laughed and then I said: “Shit!! Oh no! Excuse-moi…no! Sorry, sorry!” Finally, they understood me and bought a mobile phone.
This is why I can say I put my foot in it too!
