Yet, at least for me in learning Spanish, the most difficult part was not learning the inflections, which even now (having not studied it in 5 years) I can remember perfectly, but knowing *when* to use which inflection, and how best to translate each inflection. Having heard from several non-native speakers, I must assume that that part for English is more difficult than most other languages. -- "There's no such thing as 'cool'.
