For me, learning English is not a problem. In our country, it is one of our medium instruction in schools. Though your language is more difficult to learn, I had stayed in China for almost a year. It really blows my head off as I tried to learn Mandarin. I had trouble learning also some "haka" dialect.

Wow, seems you can speak several languages! English is said to be easier than many other languages to learn, but I am still struggling with it and some English level tests. I'm going to take GET-4, an English test, and though it's really not hard, but I'm still nervous... Hope there is one day when I can say the same as you, "For me, learning English is not a problem"! How cool!

If you are able to write this post, then your English is quite good. The challenge with English is that there are so many exceptions to the rules both in grammar and in spelling. Also, English is derived from two major languages, Anglo Saxon (old German) and French. So, there are sometimes two words that will express the same thing, such as 'aid' and 'help'. Also, the accents are different in the different English speaking languages such as in England, Australia, Canada, and the USA. Sometimes, English speaking people have a hard time understanding other English speaking people's accents. If you want to learn English, you are best to find someone who speaks English and have conversations with them. All the best to you.

thank you, ZoeJoy! English is derived from other language? I didn't know... I can write slowly, but speaking frequently is lot of harder. Just as you said, it's a good idea to find someone who speaks English, and I am always trying to. You know, in China, there are not that many English speakers ;( , and I don't have many chances to have conversations with others in En. That's what troubles me.
