It was a typical Monday morning at the language institute, where English learners gather to sharpen their skills. But today, things were about to take an unexpected turn.

As the class settled in, the teacher walked in greeting the students, “Good mourning class”, he said with a smile. The classroom went silent as the students tried to suppress their giggles.

One student, let’s call him John, decided to raise his hand and pointed out the mistake. “Excuse me, sir, I think you meant to say ‘Good morning’.”

The teacher looked bewildered, “Oh, I’m sorry, I have a bit of a coffin this mourning.”

The class burst out laughing, with some even falling off their chairs.

As the laughter calmed down, the teacher decided to get into the lesson for the day. “Today, we will be discussing idioms,” he announced, “Now, who can tell me what ‘hit the road’ means?”

A student raised her hand, “It means to hit someone while driving.”

The teacher looked appalled, “No, no, no, that’s not what it means. It means to leave or start a journey.”

Another student chimed in, “Oh, I know another one, ‘cold feet’ means your feet are literally cold.”

The class erupted in laughter once again.

As the class went on, it was clear that the students had their own understanding of the English language, one that was far from accurate but definitely entertaining. Despite the mishaps, they all walked out of class that day with a smile on their faces, having learned a thing or two about the importance of communication.
