My mom got called on to read aloud in class and came across the word ‘island’ and pronounced the s (is-land) and the whole class laughed at her and the teacher told her she was stupid. She grew up hating reading and has literally not read any books, newspapers, magazines, etc. since my sister and I were younger and then she only read us children’s books because she ‘had to.’ So like, don’t do this.
the same also applies to people who don’t speak english as their first language, people need to fucking realize that they can actually speak more than one language. i am pretty certain people who make fun of others when they speak or mispronounce, or make fun of their accent, cant even learn a fucking language independently
