i wish I was british. They speak proper english and use metric and celsius and drive on the left side and have cool accent. america's stupid. the only good part of being american is that we learn english as a first language, and it's the second hardest language to learn in the world. Besides Chinese.

Yeah, English is the hardest language. It has so many rules for which there are more exceptions than actual words which follow the rules! Once you get past learning the characters of the various Chinese languages, the grammar is comparatively very simplistic, and easier than English.

Plus all the extra letters, which ok a lot of languages have but english seem to have quite a lot. Still it feels like such a step to learn non germanic or non romance laguages. (though had a little stab at irish ( gaelic) and found that eventhough none of the words (besides some prepositions) mean anything to you, you can learn it quite fast.

Still, asian lanugages feel more daunting, I guess because they are physically and culturally further away, and ofcourse a different "alphabet".

Being British, I have to say that grammer and language comes to me naturally, and is very simple and easy. I personally find that other languages don't really make much sense, and am annoyed by the masculine and feminine in many other languages. Of course, it is possible this is only be because I have grown up with this language and lived in London all my life. This is just my opinion, by the way.

English is not hard. Yes, it has no pronounciation rules, but it has almost non-existant conjugation of verbs and virtually only one grammatical gender. German, Russian or Arabic are far more complicated, and even the Latin languages are harder, in my humble opinion.

Objectively it has been deemed as one of the harder ones. I havent been raised english, but picked it up easily, especially since things get more and more infused by it ( tv and internet, used to be only books, so you would only get exposed to it if you chose so yourself). But if you analyse the languages it is less logical than others.

One's own language always feels easy, and it is quite impossible to be objective about it. (And languages related to it seem easy too because they often have the same syntax and recognisable words.)

We don't even really use the metric system, it's just that the food we pick off the grocery shelves are marked in kilos and litres. And we only use celsius when talking about freezing weather (being below zero makes more sense than being "30 degrees". For everything else, we weigh ourselves, not even in pounds but in the archaic Stones, measure everything in Feet and Inches (unless we're professional builders and engineers) and drive distances of Yards and Miles at MPH speeds.

I'm an American grandmother and I still remember when I first read that Filch was punting students across the swamp the Weasley twins had made in the hall. We don't refer to boats as punts in the US, instead it is an American football term used when kicking the ball. I was picturing Filch drop-kicking students across the swamp. I also remember when I first read that Harry was wearing trainers, picturing him in my mind wearing thick training pants and momentarily wondering why he wasn't potty-trained by age eleven. I had to look it up to learn that trainers meant tennis shoes. I agree the title of the first book should have remained The Philosopher's Stone even in America, but I have no problem adapting the content to fit the language of other countries when our meanings are so different.

Are your studded boots the same things we call cleats? As to why they chose the word sorcerer to replace philosopher, Scholastic just didn't like the word and thought it wouldn't attract young American readers. They asked Rowling to come up with a different title. She is the one who suggested sorcerer, but she later regretted her decision. Since Scholastic owned only the American rights, the name was changed only in America, and she never agreed to changes for any of the later books, but she was an unknown author at the time and gave in to pressure from the publisher.

You know, we Americans don't think about it since we're so used to it, but "tennis shoes" is an odd term to apply to all generic sneakers/athletic shoes. So although "trainers" is strange to us, when we try to explain that we call them tennis shoes, it's really not any less strange. I, for one, rarely play tennis in my tennis shoes.

Well, the book got translated to Dutch too... Just saying. :') Kids grow up with the language from their parents and surroundings, their books will have to be translated to that language, even if the translation is close to the original.

I always heard that it was that her American editors and publishers, didn't trust American kids to know what a philosopher was. Sorcerer read better and JK was too new to and probably a bit intimidated to put her foot down at that point.

The fact that very few kids anywhere knew what a philosopher was at eleven ... which would be the audience she was aiming for I'd imagine ... mustn't have registered. I'm pretty sure it was only changed in the states after all.

For real, go troll the Twilight quizzes. The Harry Potter series is legitimately good writing, even though the first books were intended for children. The series was written over a wide timespan and Rowling had to adjust the storytelling for her loyal audience, who were no longer children themselves. Not an easy feat at all.

I agree entirely. If they encourage kids to read, that's got to be a good thing. Whether you like the stories or not (and I think they're great) she has certainly pulled off something that kids (and adults) want. If earning $1 Billion from book sales and licensing rights isn't achieving something then what is? As for the comment "it's "not very difficult to write something age appropriate" then where can we buy your books?

I personally like Harry Potter. But to be fair it is almost certainly overrated - not because it is bad but because it is probably the most popular children's series of books ever written (or at least in the top few). Of all the others ever written, is it really the best? Probably not. But compared to most stuff written for children, it is decidedly better than average in my opinion.

I have no problem if you've read the books and don't like them, but I'm curious, which children's books do you recommend instead? I agree, the movies could have been much better. I thought the last one was best, and contrary to most opinions, I thought Chris Columbus's first two were wonderful since they followed the books almost exactly and were children's movies rather than an attempt to please adult fans. The later ones that seemed to just connect the dots between action sequences and leave out pertinent background info were really annoying, but I still enjoyed them. However, I'll never forgive the omission in #4 of the Weasleys traveling to the Dursley home by Floo Network. I was eagerly awaiting that scene and couldn't believe they didn't include it in the movie. Same thing with Fudge visiting the Prime Minister. My SIL, who never read the books, was confused in the third movie because it wasn't made clear that Lupin, Sirius, James, and Pettigrew created the Marauder's Map.

Another disappointing movie scene omission for me was Arthur's stay in St. Mungo's Hospital after the snake attack and they saw Gilderoy Lockhart and also saw Neville visiting his parents. I would also have enjoyed seeing Hagrid and Olympe visit the giants in Order of the Phoenix, and Harry and friends attending Nearly Headless Nick's Death Day party instead of the Halloween feast. I know they couldn't include everything, but it seems as though if a scene wasn't an action scene or didn't include Harry as the main character it wasn't deemed worthy of inclusion, and that left out so many of the things I enjoyed in the books. I missed seeing Peeves, too, even though he is annoying.

They changed the name to Sorcerer's Stone in the American version because most Americans aren't aware of the historical connotations of a philosopher's stone, which was an item that most of the historical alchemists were trying to obtain. Also philosopher is a harder word than sorcerer and since most American children don't even know the word philosopher, they decided sorcerer would be a better fit.
