The Queen actress Connie Ferguson has shared a hilarious but adorable video in which she tries to “upgrade her Zulu.”
Ferguson posted the clip on Instagram on Tuesday along with the caption:
Taking a moment to catch my breath and the boys decide to upgrade my Zulu! As we continue to learn!Connie Ferguson
The popular actress is seen in the video taking a break from sparring chat with her sparring partners, who are isiZulu speakers.
They try to explain to Ferguson, who primarily speaks Setswana, what the isiZulu metaphor “pouring water on a dove/duck’s back” means.
It’s not clear if she fully understood the metaphor, because she’s heard saying, “So it’s like pouring water down the drain.”
The hilarious moment drew bemused comments from Ferguson’s fans on Instagram.
Lindelwa Sefehle joked, “Your Zulu kills me every time.”
Sthandiwe Msimang commented, “Hhawu lol cha your teachers need learning too. Nidlalelan’ ngomntomdala? On the dave’s back…down the drain. Akukho.”
Another commenter simply said, “This is cute.”
