Assunto:  Re: hast thou ever?
 
Mensagem:  I wasn't really commenting on mastery of the language from an educated native-speaking level. Just what it must be like learning from scratch as an adult. I only know what it is like learning Port. as a beginner, of course - but seeing my esl students struggling with the english verb contractions makes me think that in some ways, at least, english is more dificult at that level. I've no doubt whatever that accomplshed and literate ability in Port is very dificult, and I might venture to say that for beginners spoken english is perhaps a little easier to understand than spoken portuguese, but obviously I can't know that for sure. As far as a truly accomplished grasp of english by native-speakers is concerned, I would say that isn't very common either.
