I hate how bad I am with English verbs conjugations. I'd just need to remember I know how to conjugate them in Spanish, maybe I'd be less intimidated by them.

English vs Spanish verbs

Wow, that's a lot of conjugations in Spanish - I'm afraid, as a language, it is more or less a complete mystery to me (I learnt German, French and Latin at school). I really ought to learn some Spanish - at least the basics - as it really is a rather shameful gap in my knowledge.

I don't find German too bad (French was much worse), but I wonder whether or not it's because I can see the similarities between English and German. Not that there aren't any between English and French, but I just seem to be able to pick them up easier in German. Very odd.

The thing I find most confusing is gendered words. I mean, how do you know?!

That's what my friend says, too! She's Galician, and I asked her about how you can tell whether something is male or female, and she just said that you kind of know. *headdesk*

I think that's one of the strangest things for me, since English doesn't really have that, so learning that things can be male, female (and sometimes neutral) is a bit mind-bending!

It's funny how many little quirks and whatnot each language has that seem strange to non-native speakers.
