my favourite “lost in translation” moment was when my friend from Macedonia (who was pretty much fluent in English) and I were talking about a girl who sat behind us in class. She arrived almost immediately after he said her name, and reaching for “speak of the devil”, the first thing out of his mouth was

 “Oh look, it’s Satan”

and the look on her face was //priceless//

This reminds me of a dude I know who didn’t speak fluent Finnish at the time and bumped into a small child.

Instead of saying
“Olen pahoillani” - “I’m sorry”, he said “Olen paholainen” - “I’m the devil” probably causing quite the fright.
