Something you 'have' done is something that has already been done and is still done. eg. I have done my homework. Something you 'had' done but it is not still done (ie something else happened that undid it). eg. I had done my homework but then the dog ate it.

There are intra-lingual and extra-lingual factor which can make it difficult to learn. I. The intra-lingual factors are something about language itself, like: 1. A hard to get used to phonetic system, simply saying it takes a long time before you understand what do people say. And I don't mean any strange accent, just the standard pronunciation. 2. A great amount of irregularities, when each rule has numerous exceptions. I don't dare to judge how much is too much, but it leads to problems. 3. A great cultural background which causes too many idiomatic expressions which can change their meaning through the centuries - it has to be worked out. That's a major difference between English and Esperanto. 4. An extraordinary bizarre system of Tenses. Well, I am a native Russian speaker. II. The extra-lingual factors aren't connected to a language but have a great influence at the studying process 1. Age 2. Education 3. Is this the first foreign language or the fifth ;-) An illegal middle-aged immigrant working for 12 hours in a sweetshop and sanding money to his family in... hm... Bolivia. With the life style like that I don't wonder he might never speak proper English. Someone surrounded by mountains of "improve your grammar" books but having no access to any real communication or a practical use in English - that's how it was in the former USSR. The dead useless knowledge piled up in the darkest corners of your brain. Sometimes native speakers speak their own language worse than foreigners. A person from the streets vs properly educated and hardly working to improve himself foreigner? That foreigner will win. Native speakers often forget they still need to study their own language.

I agree completely! and it's so funny because it's almost exclusively native speakers who claim that, and I mean what do they even know about learning the language? english is my second language, and I find it so much easier than spanish, which I'm studying as well. in spanish you have all these verb conjugations and different tenses, which english lacks to a very high degree. I guess it's some monolinguals' way of justifying knowing only one language, sorta like "oh yeah I only know one, but at least it's the hardest language to learn!". having said this, I've seen this tendency among native speakers of other languages as well. I'm swedish, and from time to time I come across swedes who claim that the swedish language is the hardest to learn. swedish is not hard to learn either, but I would say probably harder than english.

Have is used with verbs done from the past and still continuing. Had is used with verbs done after another past verb. ex. He had shouted when i entered. According to my memory...

when you're using the word "have" it's in reference to something that you have done in the past. for example: i HAVE jumped off a building. when you're using the word "had" it's in reference to doing something including time. for example: YESTERDAY i HAD jumped off a building

Actually, broadening/improving one's language skills is a very broad concept, it can be done in more than one ways at the same time which is highly recommended. One can NOT become better ONLY in one area e.g. chatting, one MUST improve skills in ALL dimensions of the language! Learning language well requires being as active as possible and making the learning as FUN for oneself as possible. Taking lessons is always important, but equally important are these: 1) Listen/watch: Listen to internet radio stations like BBC, watch TV shows in English (use only subtitles, NOT voice dubbing!), etc. 2) Write/communicate: Try to find discussion forums from the web about things that you find interesting (music/various artists, hobbies, etc.) and start communicating there with other people using English. Start using instant messaging systems in case you find some new friends or start emailing them. 3) Buy yourself a proper dictionary, and each time when you see a strange word that you do not understand, look it up. Putting words into their context is one of the best ways to broaden one's vocabulary, the more you read and write the better. Memorising is NOT the best way to go with learning vocabulary or any other language areas! The main point in ANY language learning is to make it as fun as possible for yourself. Try to find topics that INTEREST you, read online newspapers (Times, Guardian, Independent...), listen to BBC/NBC and other radio stations online, if you find a discussion forum for e.g. your favourite hobby or your idols in music do participate there, etc. The key word here is CONTEXT, which means that it is easier to learn new words and their usage as well as grammar when you use/see them in their real CONTEXT. I'm sorry there is no easy way out with this, one really must develop language skills in ALL these language "levels" or dimensions in order to reach better language skills!! Last but not least: NEVER EVER use ANY online translators, they are nothing but utter rubbish!! English is practically EVERYWHERE in the online world these days, you just have to use your imagination to find it! Learning pace is always personal, it takes the time it takes so there is no reason to hurry it up too much. If you do, you will not learn so well. Good luck!
