The Foreign Student

The Foreign Student By Elton Camp Ahamed’s command of English wasn’t so good But to make a fine impression, he did all he could He walked up to one of his professors in the hall It was the South, so he nicely said, “Howdy y’all.” “To be a member of your class is a great delight. I overheard some students praise you last night.” “They said you’re so smart, you don’t have to try. It just comes naturally for you to be a wise guy.”

The English language must be a nightmare to learn if one isn't born into it. Thanks for reading. Elton
