I don't usually ask questions but..
I have an acoustic guitar and know nothing about electric and electricity.
I've heard that erm.. You can get hit by electricity , and that's because of the amp.
And also the amp makes noise...
Can someone tell me something about it?
Because i want to buy an electric guitar sometime soon.

Well you can get a shock, but only if the electrics in the guitar aren't gorunded properly, and 98% of the time they are so you don't need to worry. Yes, the amp makes noise. that's what its there for.

Well my guitar teacher told me , he said that if i don't ground my amp i will get hit by electricity because it goes back to the guitar... + if i don't ground my amp it makes noise. ( just don't say that we're 2 idiots )

dont wory about it, as long as the chord you plug your amp into the wall with has 3 prongs, it's grounded. and most every amp will have the 3 prongs

Not necessarily. Mess with the wires inside the amp too much, and all hell breaks loose.

But the wall haves only 2 prong inputs.. ( I live in europe not in USA (if that makes any sense)) .
