Cambodian Children Try To Learn How To Say ‘Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious’ [Video]
Every language has words that are very hard to say. We have plenty right here at home in America. My wife Lisa is completely unable to say the word ‘worcestershire’ as in Worcestershire Sauce. It is absolutely hilarious to listen to her try and say it when we are shopping at Schnuck’s. Children especially have trouble with a lot of different words and they can be so cute trying to say them.In 1964 a word was introduced to the english language courtesy of the motion picture, Mary Poppins which starred Julie Andrews and Dick Van Dyke. The word of course is the title of one of the most memorable songs in movie history, Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious. What’s funny is that the word is so easy to say when singing along with the soundtrack, but just saying the word can be difficult for kids, especially kids from another country.
Last year, two British teachers volunteered to teach Cambodian children English and one day they decided to have some fun with with some of the hardest words in the English language. So, they videotaped the kids trying to say Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious and the result is hystrical and the kids had a ball as you can see for yourself below, very heartwarming video.
