I find English is so hard : ( My mother tongue is turkish. And grammatical structure/word order of English is completely different than turkish. And In English, there are a lot of words are pronunced similarly (for example meat/meet, bad/bed), and that gives challange me for understanding English when someone speaks English.
I am sure even when i write this post, i used a lot words wrongly. Why is English so hard : (

Well yes there are a lot of words that sound the same but usually if you look at the context it is used in you can decipher what they actually mean.
Do you speak any other languages? Half the words in English come from French but English isn't a Latin language it is actually Germanic. The spelling system in English is often contradictory because of the influence of other languages but if you know the root and a little about other languages it helps.
Other than that watch a lot of American shows or movies and it will get you used to the sound, meaning and context. I have a friend that learned Spanish this way and a German friend that sharpened his English on the Simpsons growing up. ☺️
Have you studied English in school? As far as grammar that is the best way because yea we do have a lot of different tenses. And yes even English and French use different word order from one another.0

English is considered fairly easy compared to a lot of languages simply based on the fact that it's base is extremely simple. the reason it's hard is because there are many homonyms and exceptions to the rules. but grammatically, it;s a very forgiving language compared to a lot of languages.0
