being is current, been is past tense - well that's how I figure it out..

Rosie has been a pain/Rosie is being a pain.. no idea ? xD

 

I keep putting your and you're wrong even though I know which is which lol... oh the which's, which, witch, I always spell sandwich as sandwitch lol... I just say sammich now lol... there's loads for me.. I blame the growing up with minimal hearing - cause if you cant hear words your less likely to be able to spell the cause you cant sound them out (Y) haha

 

oh of and off that one always gets me

Not so long time ago I made a post here and then was reading it and making face palms after face palms.

A word BREAK (as in break up) was mentioned in my post for like 10 time, and each time I wrote it brake.

Really though... English is not my first language. So I guess I can be forgiven)))

 

I also have problems with ones and once sometimes.)

try German though. when I first started learning it, and they told me a word for "sorry" is entschuldigung I was like WHAT. I need to be very careful in my life so I never NEED to try to pronouns that.

I am Russian by the way, so when people see our words, the also start facepalming like hell))) Здравствуй is a simple Hello in Russia, and that shows it all.

I thinks most languages have Hi, Hallo, Hello, Hey and stuff. But we decided, that our greeting should be something like "be healthy", and that is what Здравствуй means. Americans tend to cry on that one. Especially the vstv letters in the middle of the word. My German friends sounded like creepy pedophiles-serial killers when they tried to pronouns it, no joke.

Well, I am actually Estonian, by passport and I was born there too. But it was a part of USSR till 1991, and both my parents were born in Russia by Russian parents. But I am Estonian, even though I can`t speak Estonian (it has disappeared from my head and was then replaced by German), I can understand it, but speaking... no.

When I was in Germany and people asked me about where I am from, 80% had no idea where it is, others heard that once we won the European song contest, and some thought I am from Iceland (Estland kind of sound like Island for them, I guess). I look nothing like someone who was born in Iceland...

There was also a milk farm where I went to get fresh milk 2 times a week, and a nice woman there kept asking me how are things in Poland. I told her each time its Estonia, but she still asked me about my polish family... I loved it)

 

In Germany, you don't need much if you know how to order big beers and pizzas)))

One of the things I learnt there also was "I have no idea". VERY useful stuff ))) You can answer pretty much everything with it, and sound cool)

This made me laugh, when I was learning German this word tripped me up too. Actually most compound nouns tripped me up, lol.

 

For English, I always spell "absolutely" wrong, I usually spell it with the wrong ending--"absolutley" for some reason I put the "e" in the wrong spot.

I always forget how many Ss and Cs are in "necessary" or where they go. Necesary... neccesary... nesescary... same word. The C and the S in that word make the exact same sound, why are they different letters, and why does there have to be two Ss? There is no logic to English sometimes. When I was a kid I used the think plum (fruit) was supposed to be spelt "plumb". It rhymes with thumb and plumbing has a B in it. Why not plum? English is gibberish and I admire anyone who can learn it as a second language.

I get confused with the double letters sometimes such as

 

innocence

necessary

committment

mediterranean

 

 

Always need to look those up.

 

It's not my first language either so I need to look a few things up sometimes.

 

 

 

quirkybumablina you do just fine , I am amazed really at all of you whose first language is not english .

 

 

I have noticed that the american spellings often have a "z" when we would have an "s"

 

I am trying to think of an example but cant ...I will be back ha
