    1. I have so much admiration for students that come to this country for an education and English is their second language. Not easy.
      Hugs back:)

  3. Nas is very generous with the romance authors she features and supports.
    And yes, English is tough. Did you know that ghoti could be pronounced fish? (gh as in tough, o as is women, ti as in station.) And we have the hide to criticise people who struggle with it...

  4. So often when trying to explain our language, we can only resort to, that is just how it is.

  7. English is messed up sometimes. It's a wonder anyone learns to say or write it properly.

  8. There's so much to the English language, and seeing it in this verse makes me scratch my head in wonder that we even understand it in most instances. Heading over for a visit! Hugs...RO

  10. English was the child of Olde English and Norman French. No wonder it came out with birth defects

  11. Enjoyed the English verse, a language can be so tough. Laughed writing with a pen yesterday at how my computer does too much work for me. After 12 pages I also could barely read some, practice does make us more perfect.

  17. Congrats for showcasing another blogger who seems to be embarking on a great journey. Ahhh, the English language and that bit reminds me of my mom who always had a problem understanding the logic of this language. I told her English has no logic.
