    • Ryan Hammonds
      Ryan Hammonds 27 days ago +30

      @vere pani illethat’s not actually true though, English is considered one of the hardest simply because of spelling and grammar. Now the basics of learning English fairly easier than most, but much harder after that. So it’s easy to pick up at first, but extremely difficult to actually learn. If that makes sense. Usually learning a new language is extremely difficult at first, but after you learn the basics and patterns it gets significantly easier to actually form sentences. With English it’s the other way around.

    • K Han
      K Han 3 months ago +346

      English is my first and only language and sometimes when I’m reading and come across a word that has more than one form of pronunciation and definition, I sometimes I have reread a sentence about three times before it makes sense because when I read it the first time I used a different pronunciation and was thinking of a different definition in my head. My favorite example of this is desert…depending on the context, you can talking about a dry area of land or you could talking about abandoning something or someone and each definition have difference pronunciations. The abandoning something one, the pronunciation is the same as the pronunciation for dessert (with two “s”), which is something, usually sweet, eaten after a main course/dinner. So I feel for non-English speakers learning English.

      also languages' difficulty depend on your native language. English is harder than Chinese for a Korean or Japanese person, who would a similar language, while English is easier than Chinese for a Dutchman or a Swede, because English is similar to their languages

      And yeah learning every word individually is unfortunately about all you can do. So much easier when it's your first language, but it has still confused me since I was old enough to talk! 😂 I actually know a french guy and a Romanian girl who speak better English then me because they don't use bad Grammer and stuff like I do. They have strong accents and make a mistake here and there but they seem to know more about English than I do because they worked so hard to learn it.
      How hard do you think it would be for an English speaker to learn Hungarian? Is it a difficult language?

      @Delai Lamahat they’re trying to say is rules and pronunciation r extremely inconsistent to the point where u could just learn words individually and maybe have better luck learning
      It’s just that typically u use phonetics for when u see a new word u dk, even then though an English speaker will most likely get a word right by following what they think it’d sound like in English over using logic

    • Delai Lama

      @AV_Kay No. What they are talking about is known as "whole word" method of learning to read. The phonics method of learning to read is superior.
      If you have kids and you want them to have the best results, you use the phonics method.

    As an Italian who loves to read in English, I'm always a bit frustrated that any time I encounter a new word I have to check how to pronounce it.
    Italian is super consistent. Any first grader, at the end of the school year, could (should be able to) read and write any new word. And that's why we don't have any spelling competition. 😁

    • StarlingKnight
      StarlingKnight 3 months ago +31

      Same with Finnish.
      Super systematic, but also syllabic (so example syllable "mik" is always pronounced the same no matter the word) and children usually learn to read and write before end of the first school year.
      Only problem with Finnish is that we have like 14 grammatical cases and learning to use them right takes time. But usually kids who have been read to a lot (bedtime stories and such) before school age have quite a solid grasp of the more common cases at 1st grade.
      The clause is that while certain logic in cases conjugation fits with words A and B, it doesn't go with word C _even_ if it sounds similar/ends in similar fashion, and kids just have to learn to remember the exceptions... 😅

      also, most native english speakers (the ones with half a brain, anyway) will understand what you mean regardless, at least here in 'murica. since there's a lot of non-native english speakers here anyway, a lot of us are used to hearing mispronounced words.
      and if a native english speaker does still make fun of you, remind them that you're at least bi/multilingual, while they (probably) aren't.

    • thecameronator

      I think it's pretty consistent. You just gotta accept that sometimes the rules are bent because there are a metric fuck ton of words that are just lifted from other languages at some point or another. That does admittedly get more confusing because of the slow morphing of pronunciation across different dialects and eras over time.
