TOPIC: Why English is so Hard to Learn?

Why English is so Hard to Learn? 6 years 6 months ago #55406

I got this from another site. Try to read the sentences aloud and check whether you got the correct pronunciation. The words can sometimes be misleading to pronounce. I tried it already and committed some mistakes. Anyway as the saying goes, "to err is human".... ;)

1) The bandage was wound around the wound.
2) The farm was used to produce produce.
3) The dump was so full that it had to refuse more refuse.
4) We must polish the Polish furniture.
5) He could lead if he would get the lead out.
6) The soldier decided to desert his dessert in the desert.
7) Since there is no time like the present, he thought it was time to present the present.
8 ) I did not object to the object.
9) There was a row among the oarsmen about how to row.
10) They were too close to the door to close it.
11) Upon seeing the tear in the painting I shed a tear.
12) How can I intimate this to my most intimate friend?

Hahaha! 'Good one Travelboi!

I will copy this and have my kids have a go at it. 'Good activity to get them thinking about English and it being a "hard" language to learn.

It really is!

#9 is tricky at first reading. you are expecting an object right after "...row [of something]..." and then you are hit with "among" ahehehehe!

I think English is not a hard language when compared with French or many other language. These words are spelt the same but mean different things. Most people who learn english find that hardest. It would be interesting in English that a double negative forms a positive. In some other languages such as Russian, a double negative is still a negative. However, there is no language in which a double positive can form a negative.

Peace YOU! :)

GOOD MANNERS are a matter of common sense and courtesy, so a gentleman or a lady should begin to develop them as soon as you're able.

When you know the reason why you are learning, the rest becomes so much easier.

For fellow educators in Thailand, here's something to think about as you start another work of purposeful teaching tomorrow morning:

As a teacher wouldn't it be so much easier to know that one trait that could help your learners much more easily get from a to Z in their learning of the English language?
