  • I can understand how it could be hard if you did not speak it from birth. RED & read--one a color, one read ( have read) a book--all said the same way--I will read (reed) a book, I have read (red) a book----my shirt is the color read----confusing

  • You can go to any language and find things that do not seem to make sense of follow the "rules"
    However if you are going to live for any length of time in a country, you should learn the rudiments of the language and be able to speak in at least the basic terms.
