Whoever said that English is an easy language to learn has obviously never tried! It IS difficult!
English does not help itself when there are a large number of words all spelt the same but do not have the same meaning and often, are not even pronounced the same. Let me give you an example:
Since there is no time like the present, he thought it was time to present the present!
The same word, spelt the same way but with two different pronunciations and three different meanings.
Can you guess which is which??
Let’s look at some more craziness of the language:
There is no HAM in hamburgers – it is beef
French Fries were not invented in France nor English muffins in England.
There is no EGG in eggplant nor APPLE in pineapple!
Boxing rings are not round – they are square!
Are there really any difficult English words???? Of course there are and don’t let anyone tell you otherwise.
Until the next time.
