"Is there any word in your mother tongue which has same pronunciation of an English word but different meaning(Homophone?) "Truth is stranger than fiction". A real incident which took place in Mumbai some 20 years back. An American landed In a foreign bank in Mumbai to do some audit work. He was provided with an attender to do a few menial jobs like opening/closing the door on his entry/exit.The American Officer found the assistant not closing the door whenever ordered to do so as he couldn't understand American accent.The American Officer made a complaint to Bank Manager. The Manager racked his brain and finally found a solution to this problem. He advised American Officer to say "There was a banker" instead of "Close the door". It worked out fine. "There was a banker" phonetically matched with DARWAZA BANDH KARO" in Spoken English classes
This is another way of doing it, we Indian are more famous in such stories... Hook or Crook get the job DONE ! but it is not the need of the day TODAY ! Put your efforts and master the accent you will go places ! Opportunities !
