Language Lessons: Very Difficult

My new favourite term in Bahasa Indonesia pretty sums up the feeling of learning a new language most days.

In Bahasa Indonesia to describe something as very difficult you say Setengah Mati (Se-teng-ah ma-ti).

Direct Translation: Setengah = Half 
                                Mati = Dead

So Setengah Mati = Half Dead or the way one feels after many hours trying to learn a new language.
