What we hear is not necessarily what we see

Hebrew, See What You Say

Ruti Ofer first grade closeI would like to tell you a funny and true story with a good message at the end. 

Way back, in Israel, when I was in fifth grade I had just begun to learn English. Of course, growing up I heard English songs on the radio and had many opportunities to hear it spoken. I could even sing parts of quite a few English songs but I haven’t seen the written language. In short, I picked up what I heard on the “street”.
