For non-English speakers, certain words have caused them quite a pickle when it comes to pronouncing it right. Add that with a tinge of local dialect/accent, and you’re bound to get some hilarious results.
English very the powderful!
In a 15-second TikTok video by @tomtomisacat, it showed her father confidently trying to teach her how to pronounce certain English words, albeit wrongly.
Here’s a list of words he tried teaching his daughter:
- Diabetes = ‘die-beti’
- Sushi = ‘saw-sish’
- 100 Plus = ‘har-red plah’
- Sausage = ‘sho-sed’
- Cholesterol = ‘carol-john’
However, what made the clip all the funnier was how confident @tomtomisacat’s dad was in his pronunciation, where he even chided her by asking her whether she actually knows the language while pronouncing “bus” as “ba”.
Watch the video here:
The video has since garnered over 150k views and 11.5k likes so far and left netizens roaring with laughter over the sheer confidence displayed by @tomtomisacat’s dad.
“I give him A+++ for the effort and the willingness to speak!”
“His accent, sounds like he is from Melbomb, Ostrayer (Melbourne, Australia).”
