  1. English? No. If mexicans can learn it “on the job”, its not hard.
    Try Japanese.
    I know people that have been learning it for several years and are barely able to sustain an impromptu conversation. I have been learning for 3 months and I’m barely half way through learning the hiragana syllabary (I have yet to start on any of the 2136 kanji).
    At least with Latin alphabet languages you can sound out a word you don’t know. If you haven’t learned how all the Kanji are read, you can speak the language perfectly and still be completely illiterate.

  2. Born in the US.
    Yes, our language is fucked up!
    Catch, caught, etc.

    At my age even I forget spelling and I was good at it when younger.
    Now I’m looking up the spelling.

    Have to wonder how people learn it?

    Japanese, its called a sleeping dictionary.
    Think about it.

    I worked in Japan, had two lady friends there, do I speak it?
    No, plus it was way back in 89.

    And you can almost forget writing and reading it!
    Worse than learning Morse Code!
