There comes a point in between studying Japanese and teaching English, that English grammar starts to look really complicated and strange. It really got to me when the kids were studying 関係代名詞 (relative pronouns) this year. Why do we do that? Not that hard, but this grammar seems almost alien to me now.
"This is the language which seems overly complicated. Anyone? Anyone?"
