Hmm, I'm not sure if there were easier. I think it's just that you are getting smarter!!

Magnificent article. I did not know that it's so easy to learn English. If you understand what parts the word consists of, you can intuitively guess what it means. Thanks for this. Good luck to you.

Великолепная статья. Я и не знал, что учить английский язык так просто. Если понимаешь, из каких частей состоит слово, можно интуитивно догадаться что оно означает. Спасибо за это. Удачи Вам.


Learning a language is easy. Children become competent / fluent within 5 years.

Of course, for adults, it becomes increasingly less easy as they grow older. But with proper instruction, and with clear and effective teaching / study materials, learning a language is never too difficult. And anyone can learn. I'm glad to be able to assist anyone who want to learn English or improve their English vocab. You included!!
