Anecdote: The importance of properly pronouncing “th”

Type: Anecdote

Michaela Pavon on why pronunciation can sometimes be a bit of a mouseful.

I always enjoy reading the funny anecdotes on Onestopenglish. Now, here is one from my lessons – I hope you’ll like it!

Every now and then I like to start a lesson by having my students talk about their previous week. One day one of them told us, “

'Yesterday I had serious problems with my mouse!'

'Oh, dear!' I said compassionately and asked, 'So, did you go to the vet?'

He looked very astonished and answered slowly:

'No, actually I went to the dentist’s…' – because of course he had had problems with his mouth!
