I've been told that English is hardest to learn. And when I think of the few phrases I've learn in other countries in their native language I think I understand a little of the difficult part. English spoken is very different from written words and varies depending on where you are. I my self, being from the U.s. never realized a few quotes made over the years. English is a common language that separate one group of English speaking people from another. I think they mean that English is a language that is always changing and different parts of the country as well countries use it to fit their needs. Often phrases only mean something to a local few. At other times a whole country will use a phrase. There really is no text book way to learn conversation English without living with the people. I think that holds true for many languges.
