Funny story: English homework

One of my friends is an English teacher at a university, and this is what happened.

My friend teaches a basic level English class. One day he was collecting homework. The students had to write a short report about a foreign country.

One girl’s report was about France and it was absolutely perfect. It was beautifully written and there were no grammar or spelling mistakes. My friend was amazed because this particular student rarely spoke in class and was always looking bored. So he decided to ask the student some straight questions:

“Have you ever been to France?” “No”

“Have you studied French?” “No”

“Did you copy this report?” “No”

“Is this all your own English?” “Yes”

“Why is your report in French?” (silent shock!)
