Toughest EU language to learn
FalleN | 
Portugal InLoVeWithFallenBeard 
Obviously it has to be Portuguese. Compared to English, a language that all HLTV user knows, Portuguese is 100% tougher, just because a verb in Portuguese has almost 100 different ways to say/use it. A foreigner who tried to learn Portuguese most likely had a hard time, unless he was spanish or something like that. Any tougher language in EU? /discuss

Ofc we wouldnt be able to understand each other. That's why they are two different languages. Finnish and Estonian are pretty close, they separated around 2000 years ago from Proto Finnic while Proto Ugric where Hungarian comes from separated from Proto Finnic around 5000 years ago

english also has compound nouns you just don't write it together there, in german you do so it looks like a longer word than in english but in reality it's not. but in german it's a bit different in the way that you can create completely new words but you still understand the meaning no problem so it's quite clever.

portuguese isn't that difficult from my experience because of its similarity to spanish, which is a VERY easy language to learn. the similarities make it not that difficult to learn if you already have background in spanish. it's not an EU language, but something like arabic is probably the hardest to learn

2021-04-12 00:09
We can point out the same kind of stuff in PT-PT, such as the tendency to transform the O in U, like in "poder" and many other words. PT-PT speakers also tend to reduce all non-stressed vowels to "Schwa" or even to eliminate them, such as in "telefone" (telfon in pt-pt). It is important to mention that PT-BR pronunciation is closest to the original PT, as PT-PT went through a massive vowel reduction during the 18th century (mainstream theory).
2021-04-12 02:06
tbh pt-br is easier in a sense cause verbs are more "lazy" conjuged pt-pt has ridiculous grammar, way too complicated mil tempos verbais com formas diferentes, flexoes com diferentes pronomes (uma cena que no portugues do brasil muitas vezes é esquecida) no hate, just stating what i've seen over the years i don't really care about it

Grammatical cases. You have 15 of them. But it's not only those, but that the whole language is agglutinative. You include everything as suffixes/inflections to the core words like modules and there is no strict limitation to how much you can add to them. Which can give birth to the most beautiful poetical expressions in very few words, but also to theoretical monsters like our favourite "epäjärjestelmällistyttämättömyydellänsäkäänköhän" which holds 15 suffixes of positive, negative, personal and whatnot kind. Comparingly indo-european languages just put everything in a string of [word] + [preposition] + [word] + [preposition], all in un-inflected basic forms, which is simple.

Hahahah I mean you are not wrong, but I think Finnish, Estonian and Hungarian are the hardest ones since they are all part of the same language tree and they are all usually really hard for native English speakers. And I feel like most people (including myself) feel unique or special because they speak a language that's not spoken by everyone, especially when it's a language that doesn't have much speakers and isn't really popular amongst language learners. A thread like this is a good way to bring up your own language and I feel like most people will gladly take that opportunity. :)

Yeah that's what I noticed as well ahahahhahah But I mean there are some really hard languages in the world and different stuff can be hard for others and easy for some, so it's understandable to add your language in the mix and see where it stands amongst the other languages that have been mentioned. Some languages have completely different scripts that you'd have to learn and some only have some new letters and some might have really hard grammar while others might have really unique pronunciation.

If you want to speak portuguese it's not that hard but when it comes to grammar you will have a hard time trying to learn. As a matter of fact even us Brazillians dont learn the proper portuguese in school. You need to take college classes to be able to speak it and write it the right way.

Saying some language is harder than another is extremely stupid because it's depended on what's your mother tongue, what languages you already speak and on other different factors. For example, everyone consider Mandarin as one of the hardest language out there, but for a Tibetan or a Burmese, Mandarin would be relatively easier than English.

Completely different language with it being finno-ugric and not germanian or romantic and not having gender pronouns and building words retardedly and... lappish, the "natives" that lvie in north of sweden, norway, finland and russia. its related and most similar to finnish but still completely different. lappish, spoken by laplanders, a "same, samer" in swedish. we oppressed them like nazis vs jews :DDDDddddDDD111!!!!!

Portuguese is easier than French. Take easy boi.

Finnish has to be one of the hardest, because it's really different compared to other languages and doesn't have many relative languages. Its said to be one of the most hardest languages in the world and usually only languages like Mandarin, Korean, Japanese and Arabic surpass it in lists. Hungarian is there as well. For English speaker obviously.

For sure not Spanish, English, German, Portuguese, Danish, French, Italian, Polish Anyways all of them can be easily learned. Asian languages are just way tougher.
2021-04-13 18:25
From the perspective of an English speaker, it has to be Georgian. Hungarian is up there as well. All the Romance and Germanic languages are fairly straightforward. Slavic languages aren't too bad once you've learned the alphabet.
