British English is harder to learn than American English!
[FONT="]For me English is very hard to learn, I have problems to think in English and to speak in the same time. I don’t have problems to understand the meaning of the words, but when I have to use a word correctly it become complicated, but I guess it has something to do with the fact that I use English only three hours per week on my English class [/FONT]
D'après ma femme, qui parle Anglais couramment, c'est beaucoup plus facile
que Français. (Elle est prof.)
I also agree to say: French is more difficult than English. You have the genders, plenty of conjuguaison, lots of exceptions (a lot of in English too). Well, it is definitely harder of writing/speaking French than writing/speaking English. You must surely speak French, I guess. What do you think about it?
However, most of French are having trouble to learn English. Why?
On a side, we have got a poor system of teaching (that is not the fault to our teacher but rather to the number of hours we have a week). What do you think when students have only 1h30 a week? :-( Therefore, if we wish to improve our English, we are automatically obliged to teach ourselves.
On another side, I have to obviously admit that a lot of French prefer having just their French language than getting another. Most are autosatisfied from our own language. Hence a trouble...
English is the most speking language in the world. Here is why I am here. :-D
Well said. Short and sweet, Congratulations!:up:By learning English I have come to realise that no language is hard to learn if you have the will and desire to learn it. By knowing English you have the advantage over the ones who do not and taking into account that the world is becoming a Global Village, knowledge of a certain global language can help you tremendously to get by in today's globalised world and consequently, you will be better off if you know English or any other globally spoken language. By realising this, you can help yourself to provoke that inner hunger for learning English and any other language you have a wish to learn and as a result no language will be hard for you.
