Student or Learner
Is there any difference between the following sentences:
1) If English were so easy, why do we study it for 11 years in school?
2) If English is so easy, why do we study it for 11 years in schools?
I'm not sure if they're grammatically correct.
Please, correct all my mistakes. I should know English perfectly and if you show me my mistakes I will achieve my dream a little bit faster. A lot of thanks.
Not a teacher nor a native speaker.
1) "If English were so easy, why would we study it for 11 years in school?"
This is correct grammar. But I don't see a real world application for it. Your 1. is wrong.
2. is correct.
