Hamburger

Posted on | April 3, 2007 | 5 Comments

Here is the hilarious ‘hamburger’ screen from the movie ‘Pink Panther’.

It might seem ridiculous to most of us. How could it take so long for someone to learn to say such a simple sentence! But I am sure if you are a serious language learner, you must have experienced the same frustration before. It might be pronouncing a word or a sentence. You have tried so long and so hard, but you just cannot get the pronunciation right.

If you are experiencing the same frustration right now, who not take a break and relax? Watch this clip again … and again … and again … Remember, perfection takes time!

Spoiler: if you have watched the movie, you would remember that at the end Inspector Jacques Clouseau (Steve Martin) actually turned out to be a great linguist!

    That’s great. :) Thanks for sharing. It reminds me of my recent struggles with pronouncing Russian words.

    It’s also amazing that an actor–the skilled one at least–to learn and unlearn almost any type of accent. So, if accent can’t be completely eliminated, it can at least be “acted” out.

    By the way, I love many of Steve Martin’s movies.

    With no doubt, his funny French accent contributes a lot to the success of this movie.
