English is a confusing language

English is a confusing language for many Indian students, many struggle to form sentences. This is one example, answers written by a VII standard student of a Kannada medium school at a village near Haliyal town. My friend gave up the 25 question test at question number 15.

Really it looks funny but as you said Siddesh it's bit difficult to form sentence in English for kannada medium students....but unavoidable

I agree with J. Brown! After all, English is not a universal language. Good day Siddeshwar :)
