Please make us smile or laugh by narrating one of the goofs you made while using a foreign language.
Here is mine. Once upon a time, I was in school yeah it's that far back LOL. We had to translate a text from English to French (it was French school, where I am from.) so I worked really hard at translating "The three beards." I had the same feeling as many of you while trying to fit the the story to the words, "what did they mean?", sometimes it made no sense at all. So I probably twisted the story quite a bit to make it fit and proudly turned in a paper I thought deserved a B if not an A. To my big surprised I got a zero, cero, nada, zip. The three bearded men living in a cabin in the original story had become three bears in mine.
Paying attention would have saved me from this humiliation. As my old accounting teacher would write on the board before every test RTDQ Read The Damn Question.
What's your story?
