This conversation happened between students and me this afternoon.
Student: “We have to go to practice.”
Hannah: “Oh, really? What practice?”
Student: “We must practice trumpet and sex!”
After a stutter in the conversation, the second student, who wasn’t speaking, noticed the blunder, and she aimed to correct it. As we all laughed almost hysterically, they did their best to practice the difference in pronunciation between the two words.
Sex…sax…sex…sax…sax…sax…Sax… Back and forth we went, my pronouncing it, and their aiming to copy the sounds correctly and then reproduce it over and over again. It was adorable and wonderful. I love those two girls, and I will miss them loads after I leave here.
