You're questioning literally the single most difficult language to understand in the world

I found it way easy to learn. I now know English better than my native language, even though my pronunciations need some work.

If you want a backwards language, look at German. It has berely developed the past 200 years. Because of this, and some other reasons, the lend much from English.

Unless you have lived in an English-speaking country for a long time, you most likely are better at your native tongue than English.

I have never lived anywhere than the city I'm in at the moment. My vocabulary is much, much greater in English, but as I said, I can't speak English for **** . In fact, it's so bad that I've had people correctly guess where I'm from, several times, because of my accent.

Compared to other languages' complex structures and order, English follows very little rules and is very difficult to learn in comparison to other languages, it's like how saying "I read something" and "please read this" sound the exact same. Arabic for example has accents, stresses and understresses that are so effective, everyone around the world in any dialect will pronounce it the exact same way as anyone else, this is seen in Qur'an reciters in America, Azerbaijan, Britain, France, Albania and Saudi Arabia. The absence of such order doesn't make it easier to understand, it makes it marginally more difficult.

Those two "read" do not sound the same.
#125 to #124 - flopshel (06/11/2013) [-]
The first is pronnounced like "red" and the latter is pronnounced 'normally' as "read"

else it would be pronounced as ''knit''

What's the point of the K?
It's ******* silent, don't add it
User avatar #36 to #26 - Encarna (06/11/2013) [-]
Most of the time it's to differentiate between words of different meaning. In this case for example, by adding a "K" in front of "night" you get "Knight", which are obviously two different words.

It didn't seem like "Knight" at all.

I read it as in "Knitting a blanket"
