I used to believe that all singers had to write their own lyrics and that if their language skills were not perfect, the mistakes would remain in the song.
English is not my mother tongue, and growing up I learned a lot of English from songs. But I was always a bit wary of songs by non-native English groups and singers. I was afraid that they had made mistakes (not knowing English perfectly) and that I'd acquire their mistakes.
I used to believe GPS stood for Ginormous Processing System.
I used to think elemeno was one letter, so when my preschool teacher was teaching us letters, I remember raising my hand and asking, "What about elemeno?" I also thought it was Y-and because of the song.
When I was little I thought you could get arrested if you accidentally skipped a number while counting.
When I was 5, I thought a calendar was called a counter
I used to believe the word seal had two different spellings. If you mean the animal, you'd spell it "seal" and if you mean the rubber band thing used to close lids, you spell it "seel".
I'm from a country that speaks Spanish, so as a little kid I didn't understand English much. So one day during summer when a was 6 and visiting the U.S.A I was in the car with my mother, grandmother, cousin, and sisters, we made a stop to a McDonald's with a play place, so they let us play in the play place. I wanted to know how to communicate with the American kids while playing with them, so I went like "AAAAAA NO FHSJSJSJDISMNEJM" because that apparently sounded English to me. I left several of them confused.
I used to believe that "paparazzi" was a Italian word that chefs said when they were making pizza. I stopped believing when my mother and my sister were talking about paparazzis. I asked what it meant, and they said that it is a photographer who takes pictures of famous people.
I used to believe that "sue" meant murder, so in movies when someone is getting sued I got really confused
I thought that exorcise and exercise both meant the same thing
