    why still many people consider that english language is difficult?

    dear bro and sis...

    well, so far not many indonesian people who think that english will be like their first language. until now, if we ask some people what do you think about english language, majority of them they will say that english language is difficult. but when they are forced to mention what is the source of the trouble, they cannot mention it easily.

    according to my own experience, the sources of the difficulties are:
    1. the grammar,
    2. the vocabulary

    when i was in junior high and high school, the era was still grammar translation method. it means that in the english lesson, students are asked to read some text and then they have to translate it into bahasa indonesia. another activity is grammar is taught explicitly in the classroom.

    because of those 2 things, majority of us are able to to understand and to express english text very well but it's hard for us to express it orally.

    but since the year of 2004, the government has tried to make english lesson becomes more interesting. but still, it cannot change the view that english is difficult and even it becomes the people's enemy number 2 (or 3) after math, chemistry, or physics.

    so, let me ask you this thing: what makes english is difficult for majority of indonesian people.

    ps:
    a friend of mine from america, told me that english words that are spoken by indonesian people are better than Singaporean or malayan. so, i think we should be proud of this condition even it is not satisfying yet...

    but u have done such a great impression and struggle.

    and it is true, we can learn english better from the songs and film. i cannot deny that...

    i like english since elementary school because when i fall in love i dont think it will be a good thing if i express my feeling to her using bahasa indonesia... i always try to use english to show my feeling to that girl.

    anyway, many dagang acung (or local sellers in bali, especially in kuta) never study english formally, but their english are understandable. so, why dont we try to be like those dagang acung there?

    dare to make mistakes means a lot in developing our ability in english.

    it is also true om doyo. many people are afraid and shy to practise their english. but another thing which comes in my mind is that i think because we havent got enough time to practise it, whether with our own friends or even to foreigners.

    another thing is that sometimes we are lack of context. many of us have very good vocabularies but we wrongfully use those words so it makes the native speaker of english think twice to talk more with ut. but even so, i dont think that we surrender to this condition.

    so, let us practise more here...

    For me, chinese is more difficult than english. The English language uses alphabet (28 alphabet letters). The Chinese uses chinese characters (more than 10.000 characters), and its 4 tones, every tone have a different meaning. See... which one is more difficult ? English or Chinese ? hahahha

    here, we dont have to think hard about the grammar. just express everything in english. majority of us will understand what u mean. dont worry.

    if we r getting afraid because of thinking of grammar, i dont think we are able to express everything in english very well...

    thanks pipo. u r wonderful today...
