I got reallly bored and disgusted, and I must have bored you too with all this talk about politics, conflicts and violence, let's get back to our favorite character in Tulip's wonderful world of crazy stuff, shall we? :D
So the English and the Arabic teachers were complaining lately that they're finding a difficulty in teaching Ahmed to pronounce the letters properly and to differentiate between "t' and "k", "s" and "th", "z" and "th", "d" and "g", "r" and "l", etc…
The fruits of their efforts came out when I noticed the other day that Ahmed while writing on his Math book was repeating: rrrrrr, rrrraaaa, rrrrrooo, rrrreeeee. He looked very funny and so cute. Shortly afterwards, when it was Ahmed's turn to count and read an addition equation, he said:
"One prrruth thrrrreeee etuarrrrrrrr…"
"Whattttt?! What have you just said?"
He concentrated for a moment thinking that he missed to count something and repeated:
"Oh my God! Ahmed! It's Plus honey, not Prus!!!"
"pLus I said!"
"pLus, it's "Lllllllll"."
He looked really confused, so I decided to leave him.
In the teachers' room, while I was mad at the Arabic teacher arguing that she should not push him to pronounce the letters like that to the extent that he started to pronounce the right letters in a wrong way and asking her to make it easy on the boy, the others were laughing heartily at the pRus incident.
