2. The English Language

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.

Vocabulary:

eggplant – bakłażan

invent – wynaleźć

ham – szynka

take for granted – oczywiste

pine – sosna

quicksand – ruchome piaski

pineapple – ananas

ring – krąg, arena

muffin – babeczka, ciastko

neither, nor – ani, ani

French fries – frytki

phone booth – budka telefoniczna
