I would like to get to know what the difference is between 'It is harder to learn a language abroad than in your country' and 'Learning a language abroad is harder than in your country'. Are they both OK?, is it a question of style? ... I seem unable to get it right. They both sound ok to me but my teacher keeps correcting them and I don't fully understand why. Can anybody help me.

Welcome to the forums.

You say your teacher keeps correcting them. In what way?

Hi, and thanks for your interest.

I don't really understand her. It is to do with focus and end weight or something like that. The trouble is that I seem to get it always wrong. It is not that I get it crossed out but there is always an arrow showing the 'it is' as not correct, that is, 'Learning...is harder...' rather than 'It is harder'. Why is it so or, maybe it is just a question of style I fail to understand...
