Mastering Language

I help out with math at the local Christian school one hour a week.  As I was helping a group of students the other day, the following conversation took place:

Student 1: “I just need to ponder that a minute.”


Student 2: “What???”


I did my best to explain at a 5th grade level, “Ponder… think.”


Student 2: “Ponder? What does that mean?”


Me: “Contemplate… think.”


Student 2: “In what language?”
