    I thought English wasn't that hard to learn. But I had my first class back in kindergarden, so I don't really remember. Learning Spanish was harder, but I never spent as much time practicing it either (and now, I think I lost it *sigh*).

    I know I always mistook hundred/thousand when I was younger.
    I hate words like 'government' that have 2 or 3 consonants in a row because in French, we would put an 'e after the 'n. So I always want to put a 'e in English and I can't remember if it takes one or not.
    And I never quite understood the rules for comma, colon, semi-colon.

          English is easy to learn when you have all the TV programmes while you're growing up. The big problem is to seperate UK English from US English. And knickers from underpants.

                      Heh.

                      I lean towards UK spelling, because that's how I'm schooled, but I use both and blame my bi-Englual upbringing.

                        bi-Englual?

                        Shouldn't that be Dutchlish?

                          Just you wait. We will one day get a post saying:
                          ''Hi, I'm new. What is 'tool' and why Jumble want to touch it?''

                          *nods*

                          And I won't rescue you...
                          NuhUh. *shakes head*
