Funny lines of the day...

(These were actually from last week, but I've been swamped, so I'm putting them up now)

One of my students types words into the ipad to communicate. On Friday he was asked to pick a color. We actually had to look up the words he was typing to figure out what he was saying."

Speech therapist: "What color would you like?"
Student types: "kırmızı"
TA: "Stop writing in Turkish!"
Student types: "красный"
TA: "No, Russian isn't acceptable either..."
Student types: "red"

Clearly, we're not using the correct language to communicate.
