English is easy to learn among all the languages in the world imo. In english you just have to learn the basic alphabets, vocabulary, tenses, and punctuation marks.
english is easy cuz we exposed to it all day long thru films, commercials etc :D
No, englando learn are reali hard lanquaqe
Learning any language is not easy, but english is hard because of its weird rules and some words that don't follow the rules kind of like latin.
That’s why we choosed them as international language back then
The easiest language ever
Yeah, I can say an example of my friend who learnt English in a decent level (enough to communicate both written and spoken) by playing and watching series with subs
In english the main thing is vocabulary, after learning some common topics you can already talk. Cant do it in russian or finnish lets say, many cases, almost each word has to be changed for a sentence to make sense
Yea it is very easy... one of the easiest languages for sure
english is 60% french, so...
Its easy, tenses and grammar easy too but take time to learn it
I thought my english was good until I went to Ireland or south of england. I couldnt understand sometimes or midwest USA
English is easy to learn because you can read and hear it everywhere (if you're young and use the internet)
I find that in many big EU-countries (France, Germany, Italy, Spain) especially the older people have relatively poor understanding of english, because even the foreign (US/UK) shows and movies are dubbed, so people hear much less english
Yes, only esperanto is easier
easiest language I've learned so far
It's only easier to learn because of the exposure in media etc. Otherwise technically each language has the same difficulty from and to. So English is as hard for Japanese people as it is for English people to learn Japanese.
Yes, it's extremely easy for an european
Really depends from what language you're learning it from, native speakers of German will find it easier than those who speak Chinese etc.
In about 1-2 years of living in a country and studying for 2-3 hours a day (at least), you definitely should be of medium proficiency...
It depends on your native language obviously: its phonology, its vocabulary, its grammar.
Being a native French speaker, I can't deny that vocabulary-wise, it's wasn't hard at all
There are languages which require you to change form of a noun, depending on context. In English "dog" remains "dog" no matter what tense you use or what words stand next to it in a sentece. The problem I still have when it comes to English is mostly articles and the use of the so called Past Perfect. I understand the theory behind it but still fail to comprehend the usage of this tense in some sentences where I would normally use Past Simple. Oh, and phrasal verbs are tough, lots of them plus they are idiomatic and often must be learned by heart.
Yeah I learnt by watching a tv show
Well, for Serbian, English is way easier to learn because the word doesn't have a change in every sentence or context. But, English is hard for most Slavic countries because it is pretty different, still way easier in my opinion.
Way easier than portuguese
Depends on your mother tongue. Could be easy or hard
you have lots of opportunities to learn it due to it being so international, that makes it easier. but ultimately it depends on where you live and how much effort you put into learning it, but compared to most languages it's one of the easiest to learn.
The main advantage to english is it´s omnipresence.
You´re exposed to english all the time, and many languages use some english words to begin with.
So you have a head start, when learning english, particularly in pronunciation.
I don´t know if it´s good or bad, that the english language itself is influenced by both latin and germanic (and even a little nordic from the vikings) - maybe thats an advantage too, because it´s easier for people to at least get a foothold in the language quickly, if their original language is germanic or latin.
I mean...we are here because we've learned it somehow, right?
It wasn't a struggle for me since I've built foundations in daycare when I was 5 y/o and developed from that foundation with movies and video games. But in our public school curriculum English lessons start in 4th grade, because of that I see many of my friends(talking about the top 2% students in Istanbul) struggle with English and some of them are still unable to speak.
Turkish and English have very different structures too, pronunciations are really difficult since we usually have one or two sounds for a letter while English has that legendary "though, tough, thought, through, thorough" clusterfuck.
When I visited Germany, the people there said that English was super easy for them to learn because the languages are 60% similar. For other other languages such as any asian country english is a challenge
Depends on what your native language is/Which other languages you speak. People from Scandinavia and the Netherlands will have a far easier time learning English than people from Russia, Japan, China, Poland etc. Simply due to how similar the languages are to English.
It's very easy if you go to pasha london school
Yes took me 0 effort as a baby
only if you want to learn it.I remember the first years in the kindergarden we had english language lessons but i didnt learned anything.Then the first grade until the 7th grade i didnt learned anything as well because i wasnt interested in learning the language.Then we had a very good english teacher in highscool where i had my solid base of learning the english language/and because i have already started playing games that everything was written in english i couldnt understand a thing so i wanted to learn the language.So after that i self thaught using my pc just by browsing the internet watching news in english,reding news in english etc.
I am far from a perfect english language knowledge but im ok with that.
Anglis vry easi too teac i lern no time
No, its very hard and you will most definately struggle to make sense of any of it
I'd say English is one of the easiest languages to learn.
I would say that the written-spoken english relationship not being not very "transparent" makes it difficult because most of the time how you think words would sound isn't really the case. That said tho, verbs are easy (except some irregular ones), vocabulary is ok and in general it isnt very difficult.
Being a native spanish speaker, some sounds are difficult to pronounce because they are way different, but you can always learn :)))
not sure. was exposed to it all my life like french or german so they also seem to make more sense then for example spanish
english for pidors
ruski for ril meeens
WHEN I SAY SYKA U SAY BLYAD
Its ez, I learn it only 18 years and almost understand what americans say!
as a native finnish speaker i can say that learning english has been way easier compared to other languages i've learnt
It’s actually not, if you compare English to some other languages. It has a lot of words and hard grammary. Only thing why it’s easy because you hear it everywhere and it is the language what people use as their common language if their native language is different
Subjective opinion though.
I would say German is easier to learn.
and for me personally, especially in written language, French is the hardest.
Very easy, I know english more than portuguese.
Guess it is sort of "easy" if your language is germanic. Not so much if it is slavic or asian.
A language is "easy" to learn if your main language uses the same alphabet as the one you're trying to learn. Not only that but it also becomes easier if you surround yourself with the language. For example watching shows, Trying to speak it with friends/family or yourself, Listening to music or reading literature. Also keep in mind that learning to read a language is generally speaking easier then learning to speak it since pronunciation can be difficult. If you do these things daily you'll be able to have very very very small talk with people in 1-3 weeks depending on if you're a fast learner or not.
cus it is written is latin
russians ,chinese, japanese ,arabs ,etc numerals
if your language like dutch which is written is latin it will be easier to learn it
I'm malaysian i learned malay which has been rewritten in latin which makes more people can learn english easier (you ask old people to speak english here they aren't as fluent as the gen y & z)
statistics shows that its true more people knows english more in my country after we convertered to latin (its not an overnight change it was a long time project)
if you read read as read you have to re-read read as read.
Yeah but to be fair I learned it when I was like 5
english is kinda hard because theres lots of weird exceptions to pretty much ever grammatical rule
If you just read a lot and check dictionary whenever you encounter a word you haven't seen before, then you should be fine. I don't even remember most grammatical rules by now and just type with a gut feeling.
It's hard to learn english because of the sentence structure (some words need to be at the beginning of sentences, others at the end) and because of exceptions
English is the most common second language. It is easy and it was formed as common language among people with different native languages.
I was pretty much fluent in English at like 9/10. I was earlier than most at my age because i learned it mainly from playing video games and watching YouTube while the rest learned it from school. I sounded like any other american tbh.
It’s probably a pretty easy language for us speaking germanic languages, but other language groups may struggle more.
It is relative. For european language speakers, english is really easy.
European languages not only have similar grammar, but also have similar vocabulary of Latin origin.
But it can be quite hard for asian language speakers. Because there's no similarity at all.
On the contrary, learning japanese as a korean is easy af while westerners struggling with japanese
awful grammar and nonsense horrible spelling + pronunciation
I can say the word - but sometimes I have no idea how to write it LOL correctly
those two are the worst in english
also alot of Tenses not always intuitive
Yes and No.
Learning any language is hard.
But English bth. is easy. Try learning German. G00d luck.
easier than german for sure
In terms of speaking I say its pretty easy
For writing, its pretty hard bc bullshit rules but not as hard as some languages like chinese
Yes, English is easy to learn.
well compared to learning german it's easy af
I think that learning a language is very dependent on what other languages you speak, because many languages have the same language stem and therefor similar to each other.
yes, but there are many words that you pronounce differently, and you need to put the time to work on them to be fluent, for example:
The most challenging parts of English are the very culturally specific uses of idioms and what is implied by certain choices of words and phrases. The words are mostly the same across the different English-speaking countries, but the reasons the words are used are different. In the US "how are you" basically means hello, while in Australia it is an actual question, to name one example.
if you have a germanic language as mother tongue, then its easy
Yes, i basically learned it just by playing games like Minecraft and watching Youtube videos, the thing with English is theres alot of room for error, it can not be 100% right but people will still understand you, and it does help that there is 400+ Million English speakers all around the world
I didn't go to any specific english class, just by watching tv and stuff I learned it pretty well
Difficulty of language depends on your native language. Western languages transition easier to other western langauges (latin based ones particularly). Asian languages transition to other asian languages easier (chinese based ones particularly). To have passable communication in English is probably easy enough, to have advanced grasp of any language is an entire other matter. It's hard to learn most languages beyond the basics.
Probably depends on your mother tongue. East Asian languages are probably easier to learn for an East Asian. Germanic languages are easier for Central/Nordic Europeans and so on.
I learned it in cs:source and watching movies/tv shows
Idk I learned it when I was a kid, so it was easier than if I learned it as an adult
it depends what is your native language. If your native language is something like, chinese, korean, japanese, thai and so on, then english might be harder to learn. If your native language is russian or comes from slavik family maybe a bit easier but still hard. If it is a latin language family (french, spanish, romanian so on) even easier. And finally if it is a germanic language maybe the easiest but still could be debatable. I think german language could be the closest to english, maybe I am wrong.
TLDR, if german is your native language then english could be easiest language to learn (dutch maybe too)
English is easy for many because its actually a rather new language.
A new language made up by older ones. like French. Spanish.. there is a lot of Danish in there because the leading structure of England was Danish for a very long time so between 10-15% comes from Danish/Norse.
But that is why many western speaking people have it easy with English compared to other languages, because its made up with things they know from their main language.
But with that, if you are not from that "group" English is not really that easy. Asian people will have an easier time learning languages from their "group" and so on.
You are from the Us, they need to learn our language.
My opinion is that English is probably the easiest language to learn to speak and write, Unlike other languages, English has no cases, no gender, no word agreement, and arguably has a simple grammar
English such wow learnt it in 12 years
Native English speaker but English seems so much easier than other languages. Currently learning French and its not hard per say, just a little but of a pain. Theres no masculine nor fem words in English. Learning my parent's languages which is either Japanese or Filipino is so painful, but I'll have to learn eventually.
I remember getting shat on my first year at school with mostly enlish speaking students. I was crying even sometimes lol. It took at least a year for me to speak and understand
Indo-European languages har not hard compared to east asian languages
Hard to say tbh, I reckon every language has it's difficulties when it comes to learning them.
I learned it from youtube/movies/tv shows and Im 15 and yeah I would say its pretty easy to learn
