I'm a Continental knitter and for me it is easier. English style is just hard - for me. BUT - and this is important - one way is not better than the other.

Maybe some English style knitters will have some good insights for you and I'll keep reading because maybe I'll pick up some good hints for me.
I should never overestimate my basic arithmetic skills.
