A grandmother had online users cracking jokes after a video of her trying to teach a young boy how to read made rounds on the internet.

In the clip shared by Silindokuhle Dyongo on her TikTok account (@silindokuhle.n.dy), an older woman is seen sounding out letters of the alphabet to a boy presumed to be her grandson.

After the boy repeats the letters written on a page (L, M, N, and O), the gogo, who has a stern look on her face, corrects him by repeating them herself, emphasising each letter.
