Spelling Albanian

They tell me Albanian is an easy language, as you pronounce the words just as they are written. So unlike English that has different pronunciations for the "ough" sound - "bought", "through", "enough", "cough", "thorough" and "bough" ( all these have different sounds!). - Albanian is far easier to pronounce and to spell.

Well, maybe not that easy!

I suppose Albanian officials should not claim more than 90% literacy.

It is signs like these, which are found throughout Albania, that make my mother, an Albanian language teacher, want to walk around with a brush and red paint. :)
