English Language sulit? Cape deeehhh…

Nih, saya “tantangin” guru-guru Bahasa Inggris untuk menjelaskan fakta di bawah ini tentang English. Hihihi, no offense lho ya, karena ini cuman sekedar jokes yang juga fakta. (Ini juga bukan gara-gara saya sudah gak jadi English teacher lagi lho yah)

Bahasa Inggris memang aneh. ANEHNYA KENAPA? Check this out, guys!!!


Have you ever wondered why foreigners have trouble with the English Language?

Let’s face it
English is a ‘stupid’ language.
There is no egg in the eggplant
No ham in the hamburger
And neither pine nor apple in the pineapple
English muffins were not invented in England
French fries were not invented in France

We sometimes take English for granted
But if we examine its paradoxes we find that
Quicksand takes you down slowly
Boxing rings are square
And a guinea pig is neither from Guinea nor is it a pig.

If writers write, how come fingers don’t fing.
If the plural of tooth is teeth, shouldn’t the plural of phone booth be phone beeth?
If the teacher taught, why didn’t the preacher praught?

If a vegetarian eats vegetables
What the heck does a humanitarian eat!?
Why do people recite at a play
Yet play at a recital?
Park on driveways and
Drive on parkways?

You have to marvel at the unique lunacy
Of a language where a house can burn up as it burns down
And in which you fill in a form by filling it out
And a bell is only heard once it goes!

English was invented by people, not computers
And it reflects the creativity of the human race
(Which of course isn’t a race at all)

That is why
When the stars are out they are visible
But when the lights are out they are invisible
And why it is that when I wind up my watch, it starts
But when I wind up this observation, It ends.


Hehehe, ada yang bisa jelasin? 😛
