why english is so hard to learn

Viewed 215 times 2018-11-4 11:57 |System category:News

one of the key problems with english is the inconsistency and lack of logic when it comes to vowels. the logic used in english vowels are different from all other european languages.

a- is often times pronounced as ei. for example asian, but most of the world pronounces a as in father.

e- is often pronounced as i. for example video, however, most of the world pronounces e like bed. e is also often pronounced like ei.

i- is often pronounced as ai. for example file, however, most of the world pronounces i as in tina.

o- is often pronounced as a. for example product, , however, most of the world pronounces o as in hole.

u- u is often pronounced as yu. like utah, however, most of the world pronounces as in rule. sometimes in english u sounds like "a". for example luck would have a lak sound. often times when you hear europeans say underwear, it sounds like anderwear because the u sound is like a.
