I'm not trilingual, I ""know"" spanish but I don't actually know how to speak spanish (could have a conversation in/with a spanish but would have some trouble saying some common words). Had french in school and english was quite easy compared to it. But I guess that's easier to learn a language when the majority the content you consume is in english. Movies, TV series, music, online forums. It was fairly easy once I knew how verbs (english tenses are not complicated imo, at least compared to portuguese), nouns and adjectives work and the names of the objects. By the time I was 14 I could already have a conversation in english. Sounds are not hard to understand as well, maybe hard to nail (talking about having perfect pronunciation).

I grew up in Singapore, where they basically teach a "mother tongue", in my case Mandarin Chinese, alongside English. But English is the main language, there was only like 6 hours of Chinese lessons per week, 8 hours per day. So 1 month there is 160 hours of learning, only 32 hours (20%) is for the mother tongue, the others are all in English. But English is actually quite easy, it is just confusing at times and troublesome. Sing Sang Sung, this tense that tense making me all tense. Though pronunciations are tricky sometimes, but I always just say it is how the American says it when I pronounce something wrongly.

English was the second languange I was thought after danish (my mother tounge). Then I kinda learned german, can't speak it but can understand it alright when spoken to or when I read it. Much of it is due to me not remembering what the words are in german when I'm about to speak and the grammar when I write (much is reverse of how it is in danish). But english was easy to learn since theres a lot of similarities when speaking and writing.
2021-04-08 08:14
Other than English I learned Russian and Polish, and considering that I still mess up with Russian more frequently than English (not that often, just more), even tho my mother is Russian, and I had plenty of experience during my visits, I’d say Russian is harder. I don’t have anything else to compare with, tho, since Polish was easier for me (I’m sure you know why).
2021-04-08 08:22
Well i learnt it in school, and considering Dutch and English are surprisingly similar it actually wasn't too bad

I want to hijack this thread to ask this. When you guys who speak more than one language, do you dream in your mother tongue or in English? For Trilingual people it may be even more weird like if you know French, German and English do you just have a hybrid mix in your dream? I want to learn at least another two languages, one asian dialect either Korean or Japanese and then French. Bonus points if I also learn some Filipino. I am just worried that I will have a difficult time becoming trilingual and not being really strong fluently in all languages because I would maybe get words mixed up or just not know the right translation for phrases etc.

I mostly dreamt in Russian, only a couple of times in English, and suddenly one time in German (I have never learned it, have never been to Germany. I'm ~25% German descent, though). I mean, I don't understand nothing from German language in real life, but, during that dream, everyone spoke this language, including me, and it felt natural, I was 100% sure it was German during the dream.
2021-04-08 16:04
Very rarely. It also depends which language I used the most in last several days, I had just few dreams in english or russian which I understand next to my native language.

English easiest but might be because learning started at a young age (in Finland when I started I think it was at grade 3 so 9 year olds, nowadays its grade 1 so 7 year olds I believe)
2021-04-08 11:00
pretty easy ngl
2021-04-08 11:02
Definitely easiest, English was the easiest language for me to learn but that might be cuz I got exposed to the language from a young age (even before school) and I was fluent when I was about 7-8, but school+current popular culture taught many of my friends who weren't as lucky as me
2021-04-08 11:04
if you try to learn it it's hard. if you just watch people speak like youtube it's extremely easy as the only hard parts in english are sentence structure and pronounciation.

I never had any problems learning English, since I always enjoyed learning new languages even from a young age (learned my first English words when I was like 6?). I have to use English pretty much daily, so I constantly learn new things about the language. Swedish is a bit tricky. It's a fairly easy language, but it's just that I don't really need it or find any use for it - hence why my Swedish is pretty bad. I still feel like I could probably speak/understand Swedish on a pretty high level if I used it more and actually put some effort into properly learning the language. I'm also learning Greek on my own and it's been a lot harder than learning English or Swedish for multiple reasons. First of all as I just said - I am learning it on my own, which makes it quite a lot harder to learn the tricky parts of the language. Also the completely different alphabet and different style of language doesn't make it much easier. :D It's not related to any other language that I know and the fact that I can't train my Greek with natives makes it a bit difficult to learn it on a high level. Also I know some really basic stuff about Latin and Hebrew, but those don't really count. :P

I can speak Spanish and Italian. In terms of vocabulary, it's fair, as English has a lot of French words in it. In terms of grammar, it's ten times easier. Latin languages like making grammar difficult, and even though it's ok if you put minimum work into it, English doesn't even need it.

I'm not trilingual, but I used to learn three other languages in the past (Korean, French and Norwegian). I don't really remember my experience with Korean because I was 13 years old then, but French was total pain in the ass, not even close to English - huge divergence of writing and pronounciation (English has it a lot too, but it's not even comparable with French), lots of illogical grammar rules as well. I mean, it's very beautiful-sounding, interesting and stuff, but very frustrating once you actually try to learn it as a foreigner. As for Norwegian, it's extremely easy, it looked much easier than English to me, maybe because I've already mastered English, which is also a German language, but phonetics, grammar, lexis, all of that was easy for me, I was able to have a good basic conversation after 1 - 1.5 months of learning. I will probably start to learn Japanese soon, I only need to solve all my school problems first.

It's just that if you know the context around it, it's impossible to appreciate it unless you're royalist and I'm not.

English is a hard language that is made easier by having it available everywhere. The other languages that I learned, supposedly easier, were less 'available', making it a bit more challenging to get beyond a basic fluency level.

hardest thing about english is unintuitive pronounciation of words, other than that it's the easiest of russian latvian and english.

tbh english is way easier than those just for the simple fact that it is the most spoken language in the world and you will most likely encounter it on a daily basis, while for these other languages you need to put in some extra effort (i say this as someone who studied german for a few years, still cant hold a conversation)

Fluent portuguese Fluent english b1 german German is by far the hardest. And, if I wasn't native portuguese speaker, portuguese would be impaired with german.

In current Balkans everyone is basically 4-lingual if you think politically. Is there really anyone who actually thinks that Serbian, Croatian, Montenegrin and Bosnian are four different language and not just dialects of Serbo-Croatian?

English was super easy. Really helped with learning Russian and Japanese

it's really easy. i think due to most tv, music, games, internet etc. being in english so you're exposed to it the whole time

learning english was never a necessity to me (school grades aside), i learned it without any pressure and it felt somewhat "easy". Now writing it and speaking it fluently anywhere (ie scotland, texas, singapore) is a different story, there are way too many variants.

I learned English automatically almost, it was a bit of a mix, I learned basically nothing from school but I had a lot of UK mates that I met while playing Empire Total War, I made international friends through a gaming community and had to learn even more English than I already knew. But my foundational language skills in English came from watching English and American movies as a kid with my now deceased Father who had lived in England for 5 years, so there is a lot of British influence. Now I basically speak fluent English with a British accent that I picked up from my mates. Apart from Danish and English, I also knew a little German since my ancestry is German, and I learned a lot of German in school and from my own studies, not enough to keep a long conversation going but enough to tell the shopowners what I would like to buy and so on. My native language is of course, Danish. The grammar part of German is very difficult compared to English, English is easy as fuck for me personally but German is very hard to grasp in my opinion.

It's pretty hard. But if you live in USA or in a position to use English everyday, you get the hang of it very fast. There are many weird spellings that do not correspond to how you'd pronounce the word, which was the worst part. What helped me become fluent was probably reading a lot. Best way to learn sentence structure, grammar, and spelling. -Ukrainian. I also speak Russian, but can't write in Russian that well.
