This Happens Every Time / Have I Ever Spoken Chinese with You? / Speak to Them Always Like They Understand

Three-year-old student, in Chinese, pointing to the ceiling: "{Teacher, is that a water pipe?}"

Me, in English: "I don't think so. It just has water on it because of condensation."

Student: "{Teacher, I don't understand English.}"

Me: "Of course you don't. If you did, you wouldn't be here."

Student: "{Teacher, I don't understand you.}"
