The Importance of Studying Languages

I have been learning English for 8 years and I still find English grammer rather difficult. I have got a good memory, so I have no problem with learning new words.

The English pronounceation isn´t easy becouse there are no rules like in German. I can say I have made a big progress since the time when I started with this language.

Translating texts is not difficult for me, becouse there are a lot of international words in English – for example: sports terminology (break, out, play, game, power play, bully, basketball, voleyball, golf, football …), computer terminology (hardware, software, enter …), individual words from everyday life – roastbeef, chips, crackers, biscuits, juice, pudding, yoghurt …, and so one.

The diffences between American English and British English:
1. pronounceation (director, neither, can´t, letter)
2. spelling – American spelling is easier
