Ah, the English language... beautiful language but in the same time very complicated when it comes to differences between what you write and what you pronunce :-)

Don't talk about languages complicated with a Korean or with a Czech :)

Czech grammar is extremely difficult. But on the other hand, we write exactly what we pronunce :-)

"I don't have idea of how to pronunce "VCHOD" "PTACI" "VSTUP""

The point is that once you learn to pronunce individual letters, you can pronunce everything. It's not like in English where you see "c" and you're not yet sure if it will be pronunced like "s" or "k" because it depends on the rest of the word.

Also us Italians, we write what we pronounce, except for a few cases GL, GN which sometimes has to be read in a way and sometimes in another.

English is a great language. Grammar is simple. Pronounce is really melodical and musical. Fit for poetry.
I only don't see why U is sometimes read "iu" at the beginning of words like "universe", "united", but not with "umbrella", sometimes is read "u" inside a word like "butcher" or "Saturday", and sometimes is read "a" like "cup" or "but".
And then vowels in generals... and stresses... I always forget if I have to read végetables or what, indipèndent or what, indipèndently or what, or why I read promise with the eeeee sound but compromise with the "ai" sound...
Anyway, I still love English as a language. And now that I know how to spell the words I wouldn't be able to imagine another way to spell them nor to write as I pronounce them, for instance "eniuei de uind blous" = Anyway the wind blows??? Mmmm...

I was thinking about this earlier...

De Lane Lea

Lane rhymes with vein and plain

Lea rhymes with fee and me

Bough rhymes with bow and cow
Cough rhymes with off
Dough rhymes with bow and low (but not bough)
Enough rhymes with huff

The English language is a terrible thing to inflict on the world, but the Americans should have it totally unrecognisable by the time the internet makes it the only language....

In my first semester of English we learned that the word "fish" could be spelled "ghoti"

gh - f - like in "enough"
o - i - like in "women"
ti - sh - like in "emotion"

it just shows how much fun it can be to learn a foreign language, hmm

But then I find that foreign users have less difficulties to spell words like believe, receive, perceive, relief correctly while English users mix them up all the time.

Polish would be easier to read if they chucked some more vowels in there.
