    I quite enjoyed that poem. It made me realize that if I hadn’t been speaking English my entire life I would find it very frustrating indeed. XD

    I like the poem. But try saying the whole thing without messing up.


    Holy crap that’s a long poem.


    Very long, but very funny. I liked it :D


    lol. But it’s funny, isn’t it? I can’t imagine what non-speakers have to deal with when they learn English…


    ZIVA: American idioms drive me up the hall!
    TONY: ...

    XD Sorry, couldn’t resist an NCIS reference. It’s not completely relevant, but close.


    That’s really amusing to try and read aloud. I was bumbling by the second line.


    What I find most difficult with English is getting a decent flow in my sentences, since Swedish is somewhat monotone-sounding, whereas English is certainly not. Though I had the luck of coming from a country with more letters and sounds in the alphabet than in the English one, so at least I didn’t need to learn new ones…. Poor, poor French….

    I’ve made a huge mistake trying to read out loud the whole poem.

    I gave up somewhere near the end, as my teeth felt like they were gonna break soon.

    A warning for you all: If you value your sanity, teeth, vocal chords and tongue, do not attempt to read the poem out loud. Believe me, it ain’t nice at all.

    Now I have this crazy urge to do so and record it….

    I wouldn’t do that if I were you. But then, I’m not you.

    Feel free, but don’t say I didn’t warn you.
