Quote from: milos on January 30, 2017, 08:50:38 PMAs a non-native English speaker, I freak out when I see people intentionally mix "their", "there", and "they're", or "your" and "you're", because they think it's cool. I have been learning English for nine years in school, and in some courses later, to be able to write it properly, but still wasn't able to master it, and now I see native English speakers intentionally ruining it, and when I see them doing this I just want to punch them in the face, this time really literally, if I just could reach them. While some people are putting their efforts to learn something properly, the others are putting their efforts to ruin it.Although the English is usually considered to be one of the easiest languages to learn, when you look deep into it, it's not that easy at all. Whether to use indefinite or definite article, or not to use them; differencies between British and American English (ok, I know it's parking lot and not car park so far); meaning of some words, why "good" is not the same as "well", when to say "little" and when to say "small"; we who have learned French also have some spelling problems, for example why is it "indépendance" in French, but "independence" in English; and tenses of course, they are so confusing I will never learn to use them properly, it's a real nightmare, especially the Future Continuous Perfect Past Participle Present Tense, never been able to figure it out.
