    No wonder English is so hard to learn!

    We polish the Polish furniture.

    He could lead if he would get the lead out.

    A farm can produce produce.

    The dump was so full it had to refuse refuse.

    The soldier decided to desert in the desert.

    The present is a good time to present the present.

    The dove dove into the bushes.

    I did not object to the object.

    The insurance for the invalid was invalid.

    The bandage was wound around the wound.

    They were too close to the door to close it.

    The buck does funny things when the does are present.

    I shed a tear when I saw the tear in my clothes.

    English is pretty hard to learn, and sometimes confusing, but try learning a language like Latvian or Russian! I used to be an assistant teacher in Latvian school, and it was so difficult trying to explain verb usage to my friend/student. English is the most widely spoken language, despite its somewhat confusing words.

    Its very polished in its weigh,
    My checker tolled me sew.
    A checker is a blessing.
    It freeze yew lodes of thyme.
    It helps me right awl stiles two reed,
    And aides me when aye rime.
    Each frays come posed up on my screen
    Eye trussed too bee a joule.
    The checker pours o'er every word
    To cheque sum spelling rule.
    Bee fore a veiling checkers
    Hour spelling mite decline,
    And if we're laks oar have a laps,
    We wood bee maid too wine.
    Butt now bee cause my spelling
    Is checked with such grate flare,
    There are know faults with in my cite,
    Of nun eye am a wear.
    Now spelling does not phase me,
    It does knot bring a tier.
    My pay purrs awl due glad den
    With wrapped words fare as hear.
    To rite with care is quite a feet
    Of witch won should be proud,
    And wee mussed dew the best wee can,
    Sew flaws are knot aloud.
    Sow ewe can sea why aye dew prays
    Such soft wear four pea seas,
    And why eye brake in two averse
    Buy righting want too please.

    I taught English for a summer in high school, while I was still in Thailand. The biggest question I got was "why?" because the english language make NO SENSE!

    1 house, 2 houses
    1 mouse 2 ------ MICE
    Though - tho
    thought - thot
    tough - tuff

    It's a hell of a language to teach to non-native speakers.
