I understand and read english with no problems, writing the words down (like speaking them out loud) is much harder however.

For me the conversation is hardest, especially if rapid. Speaking is not so much problem because I choose what to say and how to say it, but understanding idioms and slang is very difficult because interpretative framing and re-framing must occur over and over again and lack of precision by the speaker only compounds the problem and confounds the listener.

This is where "texting" communication with translation is more and more useful.
