In fairness English is pretty bad too. The spelling rules are atrocious, and had I not been born in an English speaking country, I likely would never have bothered.
Knife: pronounced "nife" because the K is silent. Therefore, why is the K there if it exists just to not exist?
Q: A letter that souns like a K but is traditionally placed in front of a U. Thus we have three leters that all sound the same (C, K, and Q) and the only thing that distinguishes them is that they all have totally different spelling rules.
Languages: German is Deutsche, Japanese is Nippon, and Arabic is pronounced "Eurbaa", but we don't spell or pronounce any of them close to those.
Redundant Syllables entirely unnecessary for communication: There are so many un-needed English words. Take the word Itinerant for example. All it means is "To move". Ergo, the only reason you'll use the word Itinerant in a sentence is either the name of something called "Itinerant", or as a pretentious adjective.
