English is a popular language, but this doesn’t necessarily mean it is a simple language to master. There are many challenges people face when learning English. Different people can have different difficulties and problems in learning English.

Here are some of the difficulties and problems that people face when learning to speak and write English:

1. Grammar

English Grammar is complex, making it difficult to remember, master and use logically. Grammar is extremely important as incorrect use of grammar can confuse the person you are speaking to and even change the meaning of what you are communicating. Grammar is not essential to learn a language but it is very basic to correct your language.

2. Vocabulary

English has one of the biggest vocabularies of all languages, and it can be very confusing for new speakers to master the language. A regular reading habit can improve your vocabulary and also the usage of words and sense of making sentences.


Knowing how to pronounce words in English can be very difficult as it isn’t always obvious. This has to be learnt very carefully right from the beginning. That is how you know not to pronounce the ‘k’ on ‘knight’. Listening to people who speak English well, watching the English news regularly are ways to improve your pronunciation.

4.Hesitation in speaking

Speak as much as you can.
This will address this issue. Whether you speak wrong or right it doesn’t matter as long as you don’t give up trying. It will help you increase your confidence and end shyness which is a big hurdle in learning any language.
