Pfft, try not having English as your first language. It's a PAIN! It's completely inconsistent and combines other languages. -_- it's the language of Sadists.

I share your frustration. I have a kid in kindergarten and he's learning to read, It's frustrating explaining the rules and how they work. And when he asks why the non sense rules apply to one word and not another, I just add it to the "Life's not fair and we have to deal with it" pile.

I don't know I was popped out into this world already knowing how to speak fine English smooth as silk and seems like you should check out Rosetta Stone for English language learners and this just might solve your problem....
