Did you know Adibah Noor was an English teacher way before she entered showbiz in 1994?

After all these years, the singer-actress-emcee is still an English teacher at heart.

In a social media post on Feb 7, Adibah showed a snippet of a TV3 news anchor mispronouncing the word "wilderness" during a recent broadcast.

Before correcting his English, the 50-year-old pre-empted her followers that she had no intention of bringing anyone down, saying: "No offence but this is for the sake of learning."

She then corrected the news anchor's pronunciation of the first syllable of the word "wilderness".

The video has since fetched over 85,000 views on Twitter and 2,000 retweets.

Adibah frequently uses her social media platforms as a tool to help people improve their English, posting short videos of common English mistakes.

Previously, she encouraged singer Haqiem Rusli to seek help from an English teacher when she couldn't make out the English portion of his hit song Jatuh Bangun during a performance.
