I was on the verge of falling asleep yesterday in my class on Innovation and Quality Management. No wait, that’s not right. I was asleep, but with my eyes open.
It has everything to do with the fact that I now do my finest studying after midnight and nothing to do with the fact that I spend the day thinking of what to cook and my magically ending up on YouTube and Facebook- no no.
So in that particular lecture, we had a guest speaker talking about implementing telehealth in the Netherlands and the aspects of that innovation. Except telehealth became more like taylahealth due to his really bad English.
Now I understand that English is not most people’s first language- as is the case for me- and I really don’t want to go grammar Nazi on anyone, but really, taylahealth?
I wish I could say that was the end of it though.
As the lecture progressed, the speaker made his way to discussing the hell buddy system. Now while I am very familiar with the health buddy technology, which aims to facilitate interaction between the chronically ill and their healthcare providers, I have no idea what the hell buddy is.
Maybe this could be a possible explanation?
Of course this prompted my flatmate, classmate, and big fan of this blog (for reasons I still fail to understand) to post this on my Facebook wall.
What would the world do without bad pronunciations?
Make you fall asleep in class, that’s for sure.
