Why The English Lauguage IS Hard to Learn
The English language has developed over a long period of time and had been influenced by a great many languages including but not limited to French, German, Latin, Italian (Roman), and Gaelic.
Where else will you see words like depot where the t is silent. Nite spelled night and where there are so many words spelled with silent k's: knight, knife and knee.
Then there are the differences in the English spelling from UK, Australia to America. For instance in America we spell color: color but in UK and Australia they spell color: colour.
And we wonder why kids are having problems learning how to spell.
