Absolutely, M.T., it sure is. You've expressed exactly my thoughts on how tough English can be for non-speakers. Maybe a good question would be "What is the easiest language to learn?" Spanish would probably make the list for many.

How true about the next to be learned and just starting. The Scandinavian languages are challenging but fun...I speak a little Danish having spent some time in that country. Good going with the learning, tsmog. Tak!
Very nice to see you Alastar. I am getting around slowly while remembering the articles of history you provide us. I enjoy those immensely. I do know 'Hej' means 'Hi!' That is about all I know. Speaking with a lady at the workplace I learned that. :)
It's good to see you too, tsmog; and thanks, you made my day knowing you like them. Maybe the workplace lady can help some on your learning curve. You'll be speaking and writing like a Swede before you know it.:)
