I totally agree with most of these statements except for the one stating that "English is fucking hard". English is actually said to be one of the easiest languages to learn both in terms of grammar and pronunciation. Of course, it gets a little tricky when it comes to differentiating between phonemes and allophones etc., but so does every other language. I think it's more about grown ups' difficulty to adopt certain sounds because their speech apparatus is already fixed at that point, and trying to pronunce completely new sounds using places of articulation that they didn't even know exist may be extremely hard. Still, people should never be laughed at for speaking poor second/third language but rather admired for stepping out of their comfort zone and trying.
