English is not an easy language to learn - even for native speakers.


Sometimes I get frustrated at the mistakes made by students studying English as a foreign language.  However, it is quite sobering to see the mistakes that native speakers make as they are growing up and learning English as their native language.  Here are a few examples that were passed on to me by an acquaintance, Tony Atkinson, who is not an English teacher but a fellow golfer who patiently listens to my laments about the difficulty my students have in learning English.
