Your English Weaknesses

 

I am very interested to find out if people of different nationalities have similar weaknesses in English or not. For example I was teaching in Thailand for many years and the problems were very often the same problems for Thai students. They didn't have the confidence to communicate orally but their grammar knowledge was sound. Furthermore it was very common to find that they had similar pronunciation problems with certain sounds such as "p", "l" and adding "s" on to the ending of certain words. When I was teaching Japanese students they had similar problems as above with the exception that their pronunciation was generally quite clear but often students would add an "ee" sound the end of words.

How about people from other countries, what are your weak areas and do you think people of the same nationality generally have similar problems? It would be very interesting to find out!
