Jeg tror engelsk er ikke vanskelig også. Engelsk er gammel. Jeg er ikke engelsk, men jeg kan snakke og forstå engelsk etter 6 måneder.
Why the downvotes? They mean it is difficult to learn for the Japanese because their native language is so different to English. The two languages have almost nothing in common
The word "bow" it can mean "I bowed" "the bow of a ship" "a bow in my hair" "i shot my bow" english yeeaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa
Try fair. Blond, clear and sunny, just, light colored, a gathering of people for agricultural or other reasons, attractive, in accord with rules, mediocre, and favorable. And that's just one spelling of the word. Fare includes travel cost, do or get along, a passenger on a conveyance, and food. And they are all pronounced the same.
We had some fair fare at the fair, how'd you fare? is not an unacceptable sentence in English.
Set that set on the TV set and get set to set the clock. Why are you upset?
And read and lead rhyme, as do read and lead, but not read and lead or read and lead.
Jeg emigrerte til England når hadde jeg 7 år og kunne bare forstå litt, men ble kjempebra på engelsk etter 3 måneder og etter 1 mer, ble jeg flytende på det.
Fordi engelsk er gammel, det er bare uttalen som er vanskelig. Gammelengelsk var sannsynlig mye vanskeligere enn dagens versjon.
I would say it's an advanced language to learn, if you are studying it acedemically. Be warned, there can be a lot of unconstructive people who turn the simplest question into a three page essay on grammar etc... Instead of simply answering your question. I've seen several sites where this is the case, but luckily not on here
I have alwats heard it said that English is a Western Germanic language. But I grew up in Germany, and know French and Latin well enough (the languages with significant cognates in English). For my part, I believe that English ought to be considered a Scandinavian language. There are so nany cognates, similar word order, same thought processes. English has much more in common with Norwegian than any of the three afore mentioned languages.
well, if you pay attention to sentences, you'll notice that most words are similar to French ( Bilingual Frenches usually notice it better than others ). Just in my previous sentence : pay -> paies, verb payer; attention -> attention; notice -> notera, verb noter; similar -> similaire; bilingual -> bilingue; usually -> usuellement ( not used much anymore ); notice again; others -> autres ( gram. Different but similar sounding ). And this sentence isn't the best to demonstrate it.
Silly statement. English ranks as one of the top most difficult languages to learn if it is not your native tongue.
Would like to see your list... English is the easiest language I've learnt, as a French who learnt part of German, Chinese, Latin, Norwegian, Spanish and Italian.
Well, English is extremely simple as you start and all the way up to the upper-intermediate level. It gets exponentially harder as you trully progress and strive for reaching a native-like command of the language. Its immense vocabulary and intricate idiomatic constructions are the culprit. Although by all means not an overly difficult language, it's much harder than many people think it to be. E.g. German might seem a dozen times harder at first, but once you get the hold of its grammar you notice that the language is quite regular and its vocabulary much more 'concise'.
