If you speak English as your first language, you probably give very little thought to the quirky nature of the language. You were possibly taught through repetition, reading, and of course living the language.
Learning English as a second language usually involves deeper understanding of the language rules and grammatical gymnastics.
Have you ever stopped to consider how complicated English is?
For fun, I thought I would start to compile a list of words that sound the same but have wildly different meanings.
Feel free to email me with additions, or comment at the bottom of the article.
