Yesterday, I went to a restaurant for brunch with my family.
There was a special three-course-dish for the brunch.
I ordered it to a waitress saying “we’d like to take the brunch course for both of us”.
Immediately two cups of coffee were served to us.
My eleven year old son told me that my pronunciation of “course” sounded like “coffee”.
I should have ordered it pointing out the menu with my finger to avoid the misorder.
It's a shame that my English pronounciation has not been improved regardless of having lived in the U.S. for five years.
