How I kept a straight face during this I will never know:
Grade 6 student 1: How do you spell cock-a-doodle-doo?
Grade 6 student 2: Ummm…not sure. Coooock (imagine a long sounded out ooooo sound) cooooooooooooock. Hmmm… C – O – C – K
Student 1: Wait, what? C – O?
Student 2: Right. C – O – C – K, cock
Student 1: You pronounce that cock?
Student 2: Yup that’s cock.
WOW. Not a single student batted an eyelash at this exchange. You know English is not their first language when, in a room of 20 eleven-year-old students, that causes not even a ripple of commotion. I however, in a fit of immaturity, had to leave the room and have a good moment of hysterical laughter.
