The English language is not easy to comprehend, I will tell you that much. I think that people need to go and master it day in and day out. There are lots of people who are confident about what they know and are just not looking forward to improve any longer. In my opinion, we need to go and try to improve every single time that we can. We have the means to do it, so we need to do it.
