Funny Pronunciation of Certain English Words

repeataftermeEvery language has its rules. When a native speaker encounters another language, s/he automatically applies the rules of his language. This is the case for Turkish native speakers who just begin to speak English.

It is not an accent issue- it is more about generalizing all the rules for every language. 🙂 Of course, these are quite simple pronunciation mistakes which are easy to overcome but they are great fun for beginners. 🙂

Let’s see what kind of mistakes a Turkish beginner makes. I wanna thanks the presenter for this funny video. The introduction is Turkish- so just skip the first part 🙂

    I loved the video! I would love to make a similar one for some South African-specific pronunciation mishaps – there are so many. Obviously these are the kind of things that are resolved with time. Gosh, perhaps I should do some for German, since I’m sure I do this kind of thing in German all the time…
