So its the end of the week and my brain is fried. Above is a link to a video I found on BBC..its about making funny mistakes in French…or several other languages if you follow the post. Given that I feel like I’m regressing right now, I found this one comforting.

    This can happen the other way around…
    Picture the scene. A summer’s evening in a town near the River Test. A German exchange student at dinner with the entire English family (grandparents included).
    She is describing in excellent English how in Germany, people are referred to by the river rather than a town e.g. Rhoners.
    ‘So,’ she continues, ‘that would make you all Testes!’ and smiles brightly around the table amid guffaws and desperate attempts to explain the translation….
