Got love the English language

I feel sorry for foreigners that try to learn to read English.

Why doesn't waster sound like master?

cough sounds like koff
rough sounds like ruff
though sounds like tho
through sounds like thru

neighbor sounds nothing like its spelling, sounds like naybor

Why do certain words need BOTH a 'c' and 'k' together? Isn't one of the letters enough?
For example, tack, quick, luck, etc etc...
Would it not sound the same if it were just tak, or luk, or quik ?!?
