English is such a "rich" language with all of our nonsensical sayings, it is no wonder that an immigrant is so often confused.

As an immigrant to the UK I can however confirm the confusions with the language. One of my favourites is Reading and reading, both spelled the same way but pronounced entirely differently why no-one can tell me!
