We all know the English language is full of weird and complicated rules. I don’t think I’ll ever get it figured out.
I didn’t learn english until we moved to America when I was nearly 7 years old. I started second grade knowing how to say “yes”, “no”, and “apple”. By third grade I tested out of ESOL (english as a second language class) although they made me take the test twice because they thought I couldn’t possibly be that smart. I fooled them the second time as well.
