    I read somewhere that this is the hardest English sentence. From my experience, probably the hardest word is 'squirreling', whoich is difficult for so many students of so many nationalities.

    are. I am new here. You speak English, so I beg you to use more daily English (Can I use that word?). Do you know what I mean? I find that many people use very difficult and complex English here. I prefer easy and simple English, just like what you speak in your daily life. That was difficult to express! I don't know whether you can understand me.
    Welcome

    use more daily English => use natural English or use English the way you speak it on a daily basis.[/b]
