Discussion: Why are English Question Words Hard to Learn?

Hello colleagues, I'd like to find some different strategies for teaching the English questions words: who, what, where, when why, how, which. In my experience, these words are difficult for beginners to acquire. I am not sure why these words tend to be problematic. If you have thoughts on this, please let us know.

What ideas do you have for supporting learners to internalize these essential words, so they can use them fluently?

Cheers, Susan Finn Miller
