Hi Reama,
Spelling in English is difficult, isn't it? Native speakers find it difficult too, so it's not just you.
Almost all English sounds are spelled in different ways and almost all letters and groups of letters can be pronounced in different ways. But there are some rules, so it's not all bad news!
For example, if you want to make a comparative or superlative, we add -er or -est to the end of the adjective. However, if the adjective ends in a consonant plus -y we change the 'y' to an 'i'. e.g. lazy - lazier - laziest If the adjective ends in a consonant plus -e we remove the double 'e'. e.g. safe - safer - safest And if the adjective ends in consonant - vowel - consonant, we double the final letter. e.g. big - bigger - biggest However, there are even some exceptions to that complicated rule!

Yes, there are traffic laws in my country but who cares.....
Drivers don't care about pedestrians, especially students old people and children find it difficult to cross the roads even there are traffic signals and zebra crossing.It's my personel experience at university times,there was heavy traffic on that particular road and i did not find the way to cross the road safely even it was dangerous to cross the zebra crosssing . But situations are not same everywhere in the country.
Traffic situations are much better where  traffic wardons are appointed or they are on patrolling. Crossings where there are no signals and no traffic wardons......hap hazard traffic.I wish soon people become aware of traffic laws and get patience,tolerance
Yes,pedestrians are poorley treated by drivers.

hello. It's nice presentation. Thank you

In my country,Turkey,although,there are red lights for pedestrians,drivers never care pedestrians' life.

 in kosova ,crossing is disaster
