How difficult can it possibly be ?

So, what do I find most difficult about teaching or learning a language ? Here are my thoughts from a couple of days ago.

Learning1I find the most difficult part of teaching and/or learning languages is using collocations confidently and consistently. Teachers are often reduced to saying things like “There is no logical reason why we say this, we just do.” This of course does not satisfy eager students who have a burning desire to learn. It often ends in a blazing row. (As opposed to a blazing desire and a burning row !)
