I started with english style, then changed to continental, for the ease of ribbing, and as I found out later, double knitting as well.
If it doesn't feel comfortable to you, you don't have to switch, it might be that you're faster in english than in continental. And even though I was not very fast in the beginning, with practice, speed goes up.
Keep on trying, and if you really don't like it, don't do it.
The ways of Yarn are inscrutable.
