imagine genuinely thinking this though

Imagine trying to learn a language especially one that has homophones & homonyms. Imagine trying to learn an language and being expected to literally just know the difference of a word that has two separate meanings and spelled exactly the same. Imagine reading a word that starts with “A” shit could possibly have like 3 different ways to say it .. aye, Uh, Ah (pronounced like awh) then ah (pronounced like apple). none of them give you a single clue how it’s supposed to be pronounced based on the spelling you’re just.. supposed to know. I’m sure you, as a native of this language can’t seem to understand how that can be hard. Me, as a native English speaker can understand and empathize considering I have a foreign parent. This language is so hard.
