I can write in english, but I CANNOT SPEAK.
It's like- I totally forget how to pronounce some words
It's a true hell

And remembering this "did" things
Like I almost always do for example "I did went"
its hORROR

Japanese was my first language, German being my second, so English was a wild ride to learn, oh boy, was it awful

It's taken me 13 years to perfect English while German took me two

I'm a native English speaker too, but I think there are far too many exceptions to nearly all the grammar/spelling rules. I understand it, but I think it must be really frustrating to deal with if I were learning how to speak it the first time :'0

personally i think homonyms are weird as heck and im sorry to anyone who has to learn english as a second language honestly
like its my first language so obviously im fluent but recently, because ive started learning two other languages, ive been like,, picking apart my sentences in english??? and being like "oh thats a verb, thats an adjective" etc. and the more i do this the more i realize that english is HARD and DUmb
