Basic characteristics of English. Can you say that it is an easy language to learn?

For me, English is very difficult language. Old English, like modern German, French, Russian, and had many Inflictions to show singular and plural, tense, person, etc, but over the centuries words have been simplified. Verbs now have very few inflections, and adjectives do not change according to the noun. As a result of the loss of inflections, English has become, over the past five  centuries, a very flexible language. Without inflictions, the same word can operate as many different parts of speech. Many nouns and verbs have the same form for example swim, drink, walk, kiss, look, and smile. We can talk about water to drink and to water the flowers; time to go and time to a race; a paper to read and a paper a bedroom. Adjectives can be used as verbs. We warm our hands in front of a fire; if clothes are dirtied, they need to be cleaned and dried. Openness of vocabulary, this involves the free admissions of words from other languages and the easy creation of compounds and derivatives. Most world languages have contributed some words to English at some time, and the process is now being reversed. Purists of the French, Russian, and Japanese languages are resisting the arrival of English in their vocabulary. In my opinion, English is difficult for me. The vocabulary and the grammar of English are complex and intricate. I’m learning English for the space of 4 years, so I have a lot of problems with grammar, for example, I mix up times or articles. But I need more time to learn English. I would like to visit England and to know a English culture, I want to hear real English, because it can help me to develop this language perfectly.
