Why is the English language the hardest 2 learn?


Wiki User

English is difficult to learn for several reasons: 1) it has lots and lots of irregular verbs that just have to be memorized - there's no pattern to their different forms 2) it has lots of very common colloquialisms that are confusing to new speakers 3) it has tons of multi-part verbs like "flip up" "flip off" "flip over" "turn up" "turn off" "turn over" "turn under" that are confusing 4) it keeps adding new words and changing constantly
