The Trouble with English Language is…


Why is the time of day with the slowest traffic called “rush hour”?


Despite me having lived like, err, four years in the UK where the first language is English, I found that at least there is one aspect of it that still got me confused. It is the ‘how’ question.

How do you find the course?

How are you pleading?

How are you paying for this?

And most of the time, these kind of questions leave me looking like a bimbo. That’s cruel.
