 hi im new here...
its very useful to study english and i hope i can improve my language...

The main issue is not just that the words sometimes changes but mainly that remaining the same ones they sound completly different. And when you hardly reckon the accent you are used changing it makes the language imposible to understand.
I don't want to be rude but let me do ask a question for you British: why don't you agree the perfect way to pronoun? The rest of world would be very pleased. Anyway, until you don't reach such agreement I'm afraid we'll have to struggle hard with our own hearings.
