The easiest language to learn?
Europe AsterioN 
I want to learn another foreign language. Which are the easiest ones, besides English?
2013-12-31 15:42
Swedish language is the easiest

No, it's one of the hardest for alot of people.
2013-01-01 11:01
its pretty easy if you know english before, atleast writing/reading part. no need to go into talking as us finns cant even talk proper english xD Source: mandatory swedish lessons in finland xD
2013-01-01 11:36
agree its germanic language so its pretty easy to learn like: germany,norway and netherlands.
2013-01-01 14:04
dude german is one of the most dificult languages you can learn.
2013-01-04 23:17
lol not really
2013-01-05 03:35
Germany a4l 
Yes it is, so many unique rules on which word to use in conjunction with others. Very difficult to get above the intermediate level in german.
2013-02-21 19:48
isn't it like that with every language? i think it's fairly easy to get on a decent level in german for some small talk and such .. and of course it also depends on your native tongue. languages like dutch/norwegian/swedish etc. are more similar to german than french or spanish for example. for some reason i've found also a lot of eastern europeans who thought learning/speaking german was really not too hard.
2013-02-21 20:01
I lold :D
2013-01-05 17:23
Swedish "sounds like greek" to me
2013-01-01 15:14
So u are good at it ?

do you hear even swedish before u wrote this?
2013-01-04 20:44
yes i did hear even swedish and i found them odd
2013-01-05 16:19
I read it like "sounds like grek", Sounds like me ? AWESOOOOME :D
2013-02-22 09:42
chinese Chinese has not grammar
2013-01-05 16:03
english has not too..
2013-02-21 20:26
Slovak is the easiest of course. Then it's Czech, then I think Slovenian, then maybe Ukrainian (though you don't actually need to learn Ukrainian unless you are for some reason interested in Western Ukraine), then... Serbian/Croatian perhaps?, then Russian I reckon, then Bulgarian/Macedonian, though that's where it starts to get harder. All the other ones are not so easy, so to speak.
2013-12-31 15:48
Slovakia Puki 
Slovak language is not easy at all. The most difficult is grammar structure. Slovak language is the only one with seven grammar cases (nominativ, genitiv, dativ, accusativ, local, instrumental, vocativ), exquisite words, soft and hard "i", declension of adjectives and verbs, in other words almost each and every word in this language is being declinated. There are many other characteristics which are not found in other world languages. It is said, or estimated, that it takes about 12 years to learn it completely, but the linguists say, that there is no one on this earth who can speak this language perfectly knowing all the grammar rules.
2013-12-31 15:54
Slovak is like ulow skill in Counter-Strike, meaning that you can actually get some frags playing against those players even if your game experience is zero. And the same goes with the language, you can understand quite a lot even if you've never actually tried to learn it before. Czech is ulow too, though it seems significantly harder. It's like Slovak on steroids to my ear.
2013-12-31 15:57
Slovakia Puki 
Yes u can understand cuz ur from poland. But for nonslavic countries its very hard to learn slovak. One of the hardest.
2013-12-31 15:57
See, that's the irony here in case you didn't notice, everybody writes from their own perspective :-D.
2013-12-31 15:58
this ^^ And +1 on Slovak being easiest :)
2013-12-31 16:50
Slovakia shx27 
Yeah and for slovaks is easiest polish. (Off course except czech)
2013-12-31 16:57
Bullshit. Why is norwegian the #7 easiest language to learn when swedish/danish isn't even on the list? Makes no sense. Those 3 languages should be right next to each other.
2013-12-31 16:03
danish and swedish grammar is way harder than norwegayn
2013-01-01 04:22
norwegian is danish pronounced in swedish.(not exactly, but if you think of it in a way it is almost true) so how can you say that?
2013-01-03 02:10
grammar is not the same as pronouncing stuff bro
2013-01-03 08:39
that, haven't sense
2013-12-31 16:26
so, it's like serbian basically :)
2013-12-31 23:29
same with serbian, the good thing in are alphabet is that we have 30 letters and every letter is a sound.
2013-01-01 17:13
Olny one you say? Ever heard about Latin?
2013-01-05 19:59
lol u must be kidding, slavic languages are really hard to learn but anyway who the hell would want to learn such languages ?
2013-12-31 15:59
#19 :-D
2013-12-31 16:01
They might seem easy to you because your native language (I suppose you're Polish) belongs to the same group of languages. For a foreign speaker they are hard to learn due to a system of cases and profound word-building.
2013-12-31 16:00
Slovakia 851 
2013-12-31 17:24
Those are just plain true facts.
2013-12-31 17:37
Slovakia 851 
Maybe for you because you are slavic, but actually slovak language/czech language is on of hardest languages.
2013-12-31 17:49
Maybe baby, maybe not. #19
2013-12-31 17:51
lol who's here baby? or maybe kid?
2013-12-31 21:19
Maybe me, maybe not. You never know till you find out.
2013-12-31 21:22
wow are you retarded? He wants to learn EASIEST language and you are requesting Slovak language... Of course for you as a Polish it is understandable language but I can bet you can't write, read and use correct grammatical forms as it should be used. Whenever I meet Polish we understand each other but that is all I can do. That article from yahoo is correct. NO ONE knows Slovak language 100%. Everyone is doing mistakes.. teachers, linguistics and so on. Slovak language is truly hardest language ever made, period.
2013-01-01 14:00
Sure I can't, as I've obviously never tried to learned it. All I'm saying is, if i were to learn a foreign language the easiest ones would probably go in that order. Or in other words, I'm sure that if I spent this much time around Slovak language as I did with English, I'd surely be able to write a book in Slovak. I think I can do that in English too now, though I'm sure it's gonna suck them balls pretty hard :-D.

Maybe u maybe not:)
2013-01-04 21:04
you're wrong, serbian is very hard to learn for non slavic language speakers
2013-12-31 23:31
And who said what I was talking about referred to non-Slavic speakers?
2013-01-01 07:21
Or rather... Anybody else but me?
2013-01-01 07:21
slovenian is hard
2013-01-01 10:10
Serbian is the hardest language in Europe to learn. Much case, much words, grammar is hard but its one of the beautifull language 4sure. Croatian and Slovenian created from Serbian, its same, little changed.
2013-01-02 16:04
"Serbian is the hardest language in Europe..." Now you're just talking jibber-jabber :) It's not an easy language for every1 with a non-Slovak native language, but it's not exactly the hardest. Among the hardest are Finish, Hungarian etc :)
2013-01-03 16:11

No, the relation that you showed is wrong. English and French aren't even grouped together as far as Indo-European languages major branches go, even though a large portion of English vocabulary is actually derived from French. Also, typical learning curves for different group of languages differ too.

Where did my "opinion" come from then? Was a born with it, or perhaps at some point I must have accepted one of somebody else to then derive my own opinion from it? I mean, I simply have no words anymore.

You should have said English and German or Spanish and French/Portuguese/Italian ..

I've read somewhere that Croatian is hard to learn for many people.

Danish is pretty hard to learn, but gl hf ;) Swedish, danish and norwwgian are almost the same langauge just with another accent. I think everyone almost understand eachothers in sweden, denmark and norway
2013-01-01 17:19
Depends where are you from. Languages from your native language family would be easiest for you. F.e., if you are Czech, learning Polish is easier than learning Chinese.
2013-12-31 15:49
if you are Czech you dont need to learn Polish cuz u understand almost everything xD
2013-12-31 16:08
Tak je kurwa

it's not true

wiec nigdy nie gadales z polakiem...
2013-12-31 17:34
It's not so hard to understand spoken Polish...but written Polish is pretty jawbreaker. There is too much sz, cz, w (but "w" is quite often used by teenagers in Czech due "cool look") One day some Polish asked me for right direction to Cieszyn, because I live quite near boundary (for others, it's Polish city), but I still thought he asks me if I am "Czech". Then he realized that I can't help him :( :D.
2013-12-31 17:46
i live near Cieszyn too in Bielsko-Biala and always when im in Czech i dont have problem with comunication :) Sometimes i laugh because u have some rly. funny words :) I even played mix with slovakian and czech players and we spoke in our languages and it worked :P
2013-12-31 17:57
Yes, you have funny words too. For example "to find", in Polish it's something like szukat? If you say "Ja szukam", in Czech it means "I have sex with..." (don't want to be nasty) :)).

2013-01-01 00:19
Honza is just another way how to say Jan colloquially. His official name is Jan but friends and family call him Honza.
2013-01-01 13:56
Honza sounds like that: (or if this url doesn't work, use your google translate, choose Czech language and type Honza ;))

went to cz during summer, after 1 week i understood everything. i'm from slovenia
2013-12-31 17:58
It's possible, I've never heard Slovenian, but probably it's similar to Croatian..? :)
2013-01-01 14:23
it's much, much more similar to czech and slovakian. infact, slovakian is the closest language to slovenian also you must be quite a moron considering the fact that youve never heard slovenian...
2013-01-01 16:26
I've never heard Slovenian speaking, because everytime I was only traveling through your country.
2013-01-01 17:04
i've never travelled through eg. estonia but ive heard estonian so yea... ignorance :)
2013-01-01 17:28
I have no idea, where to meet somebody from Slovenia..okay? ;)
2013-01-01 18:15
To be honest, this w is a bit outdated and used only by the.. Let's say teenagers with a much lower brain activity.
2013-01-01 12:21
Actually I did, I understand some words but I can't say I know everything 100%. When I was trying to watch some polish TV I didnt understand well, but when I was playing a cs mix with polak, he told me the same then. He understood some words like numbers and parts in a map, but we still talk in english on steam.
2013-01-01 14:03
That really depends on where exactly in CZE you live. People from southern Bohemia are not as fond of Polish as people from the northern Moravia ;) And even then, you don't get every sentence, probably not even half of the conversation, really.
2013-01-02 16:57
You are right :)
2013-12-31 20:35
not Dutch. Its pretty hard ive heard.
2013-12-31 15:49
If he can talk english and a bit german he can learn dutch :)
2013-01-01 13:13
In Norway, we learn german at school, and I can actually understand a lot of dutch because of that! not too different ;)
2013-01-01 13:57
lemme hear some then lol :p I think fluently dutch is harder to learn than fluently french or spanish tbh
2013-01-04 15:50
Talking and understanding is very different. I was taught some german in school aswell, and I too understand some dutch. I can't speak dutch but with some study it wouldn't be too hard to learn. :)

Yes because both of them are nordic :)
2013-12-31 18:05
2013-12-31 23:21
Is swedish really easy? I want to know because I want to go on college in Sweden (I know english pretty good, I can communicate and I understand english as well, although my problem is grammar and writing:D ) About my German language well, I hate that language and I am learning it just because I have to but I heard swedish is really similiar with German, is it true?
2013-01-01 14:34
Yes, is it very easy. Im not swedish, i moved to sweden when i was ten years old, i could speak fluently after 3-4 months, so I say swedish is pretty easy :)

Yeah it's not that hard for people who know portuguese, but for others portuguese/spanish aren't very easy :)
2013-01-01 00:05
They are easier than many other
2013-01-01 17:22
in terms of speaking portuguese is way harder than spanish , because the portuguese language has 14 "speaking" vowels

I am living in germany for 4 years (moved with 13), I obviously speak german fluently, but I meant written german is very, very hard. I hang out with germans mostly and they themselves have their own difficulties with written language. (Gymnasium, keine Hauptschule ^^).

Serbian broz "Write as you speak and read as it is written."
2013-12-31 15:59
same goes for macedonian and slovenian of the three, macedonian is the easiest for me. i study it, i often have a feeling that it's serbian/croatian simplified for retards. :P
2013-12-31 18:00
acctually slovenian language isnt easy at all... we have singular,dual and plural... the difference is that other countrys have only singular and plural...there is no dual XD soo slovenian language is one of the hardest languages to learn
2013-12-31 19:12
i was refering to "write as you speak". i know slovenian isnt easy, duuh :D also: the foreigners i meet at the faculty usually say that the dual is one of the smallest problems regarding slovenian. its whole grammar is rather complex, not just the dual. besides, one can cope without using it at all, sad to say
2013-12-31 19:26
Same thing in Finnish..
2013-12-31 23:43
yeah, but in Finnish it is like this... whenever your are in a convenient store in, lets say, france, spain, ukraine, croatia, netherlands, whatever, you take a product from the shelf, you start to read the labels and sooner or later you know you will stumble upon a word you recognise for some reason, you know, it could be something latin, something slavic you know or germanic, whatever, though in Finland it is like wtf okay i have no idea what it says i cant even say for sure whether this thing they sell is edible or is it not :-D
2013-01-01 07:48
I had hard times reading and understanding your 101 words long sentence.

2013-01-02 20:06
Same out here. Romanian is not that hard to understand if you are slavic or latin.
2013-01-02 16:22
I think the english is the easiest, because it's everywhere in common world and everybody knows at least few basic words and the structure of english sentences is quite easy. ,,English is also considered easy because it has no cases, no gender, no word agreement, and arguably has a simple grammar. The language is everywhere and can be heard, absorbed and used anywhere. It has short words, and verbs change only in the third person. Native speakers are very forgiving of mistakes as so many people speak it as a second language. This makes English one of the easiest foreign language to learn,,
2013-12-31 16:08
Yeah, but he asked for others languages - beside English :).
2013-12-31 17:49
I am not sure but I think that German might be the easiest language to learn mainly because the grammar in Germany is very easy to learn; they have rules for everything. It is actually a pretty smart and simple language if you learn the grammar.
2013-12-31 16:05
Agree. But still there are some incomprehensible "things" for me.
2013-12-31 17:51
which ones?
2013-12-31 17:55
Der, die, das - especialy differences between singular and plural; capitals at beginning of nouns. I'm lazy to open "Sprechen Sie Deutsch" book and look up more nonsenses :)).
2013-12-31 18:03
yeah, I can imagine der die das is pretty annoying for non-native speakers since there seems to be no reasoning at all which gender a noun has.
2013-12-31 22:55
hm "der die das" are still ok, but what about "dem den des" in all cases. Actually I never got it well.

I'm Macedonian living in Germany and in Macedonian we do have gender differentiation of words, but for some really fucked up reason only a small portion of the words are the same in both languages -.- Now that's annoying :D
2013-01-02 16:18
2013-12-31 16:07
Roger that !
2013-12-31 17:59
Spanish is easy i think
2013-12-31 16:09
Spanish i think
2013-12-31 16:12
French is by far the hardest
2013-12-31 16:17
2013-12-31 16:22
It's pretty easy to speak, but grammar, genders, a lot of rules and and a lot of things make french really hard to learn. Conjugation is also horrible to learn. French is also for me one of the hardest.
2013-01-01 10:55
No way. Even tho grammar is hard as fuck
2013-12-31 16:27
Je m'appelle Thomas, j'habite en Allemagne. J'aime le football et jeux vidéo. C'EST QUI LE PATRON!? yeah, my french lessons are paying off!! xD
2013-12-31 16:59

actually its: et les jeux vidéo :)
2013-12-31 19:59
oh yeah, that's what i mean. the french really like their articles! xD
2013-12-31 23:00
I liked the "C'EST QUI LE PATRON?" ahaha
2013-01-01 13:16
Nice dude !
2013-01-01 17:59
Not that hard
2013-12-31 16:39
If you're Algerian, french is one of the langage of your country. Pretty easy to learn a langage you hear and learn everyday

it's easy for us :P
2013-01-05 00:50
German, Spanish or Russian
2013-12-31 16:19
Yeah.. Russian.. and Chinese too. eeheh
2013-12-31 18:05
well, italian/spanish/romanian/portuguese are easy because they are latin and if you learn one of them then will be easy to learn another latin language (many words are the same)
2013-12-31 16:21
english everybody knows it
2013-12-31 16:22
it seems u dont

"Which are the easiest ones, besides English?"
2013-01-06 18:28
ooh damn didnt read that lol :D
2013-01-06 18:37
German is actually pretty easy (compared to many other languages in the world). One of the big advantages of the German language is you speak everything like you write it (unlike in English, French etc. ..) so that makes many things easier. The hardest part is the grammer yes, it is more complex than English but if you give it some time and really put some effort into learning you will see that most things really make sense!
2013-12-31 16:23
it's not like that, for example S at front is spoken as Z, v is fau, EU is OY and similar :), and for example Serbian is more simple because we have 1 voice for 1 letter, for example for "sch" we have Š, and so on... Grammar is pretty simple, and only problem would be cyrillic alphabet (similar to russian but more simple again :), tho we have latin alphabet as well :)
2013-12-31 16:30
S at front at front is spoken as Z? Don't think so, can't even find an example for that, maybe you can? :D And yeah v is sometimes spoken as "f" or "w" but that depends on the words origin, some words aren't of German origin (like "Virus" for example) so the pronounciation changes but usually you speak v as "f". And things like "sch" or "eu" are composited sounds, it is true that this might be irritating for starters but there aren't many of them and you always pronounce "sch" and "eu" the same, once you know them it isn't a big thing anymore. :D
2013-12-31 16:44
for example sie, sind or idk sieben and rest :), agree for last part i'm kinda adapted now, but i'm confused always like should i use der,die, das etc... :D
2013-12-31 17:20
"sie", "sieben" etc. are normal "s" sounds, just compare it to words like "zeit" or "zahl", not sure what you mean. the articles are really something different. i'm currently learning french i always need to look after le & la, always need to look up if the noun is male or female. xD
2013-12-31 17:52
We were learned, that "sie" or "sieben" are read as "zi" or "zibn". And the words you've mentioned - zeit is pronounced as "cait", zahl as "cal" . So my nickname could be written in Deutsch as "presszott" :))
2013-12-31 18:00
i think we talk past each other, probably we have a different understanding of sounds. xD you mean like the "c" in "cäsar", right? that would be correct. and the s in "sie" or "sieben" you pronounce like the s in english words like "super" or "stone".
2013-12-31 18:21
he means 's' is pronounced like you would pronounce Zoey (first vocal) in english so its like s=z and z=c
2013-01-06 19:07
Yes, those "der, die, das" are annoying and also super-long composed words. But still I've learned German faster than English (and faster forget :( )
2013-12-31 17:57
Yeah, and then you find your sorry ass in let's say, St Gallen, Switzerland as I did the other day and you think it's some variant of Swedish (on helium!) being spoken :-D. I don't speak German other than I can make sense of some basic phrases, though I'm just saying that the fact pronunciation differs so much from region to region (and I think vocabulary does as well, though to some lesser degree) is somehow a factor that you should take into account as well when talking about whether the language is easy or not to master.
2013-12-31 18:58
it is true that there is a great variety of different german accents but this is the case for every language/country i think? and beside that every german should be able to speak the standard/high german. swiss-german is different, they got their own alphabet/rules although it's nothing "official" and austrian people just have a weird pronounciation sometimes (no offense :p). ^_^
2013-12-31 18:58
Spanish, italian, serbian/croatian/bosnian
2013-12-31 16:25
i think you realy dont now much about serbian language... (ako neko od stranaca nauci nasu sintaksu ja mu skidam kapu a i ne znam odakle ti to da oni mogu da lako nauce reci tipa rasciscavanje i sl.) spanski je definitivno laksi pa cak i italijanski
2013-12-31 17:06
pa tako sam ih sortirao, nas tek na trecem upravo zbog toga, a da se ne lazemo veliki deo naroda kod nas ne zna padeze a kamoli nesto komplikovanije :).Misli se o osnovama o komuniciranju, ne o pravno/poslovnom recniku :)
2013-12-31 17:14

2013-12-31 17:46

2013-12-31 17:55
slavic languages are among the most difficult to learn. especially proper russian and slovenian (i'm from slovenia but i dont think my opinion is biased - i study macedonian and speak croatian)
2013-12-31 18:03
I think the hardest is Arabic , Russian , Danishn, Chinese and Kabyle. The easiest is English ,Italian and German. I would add that if you want to learn something you will learn it !
2013-12-31 16:37
what #5 said . If u`re an english native speaker then u`ll find it more easy learning germanic-family languages. Learning romance and slavic languages will be harder for you.
2013-12-31 16:32
English, obviously
2013-12-31 16:34
Which are the easiest ones, besides English?
2013-12-31 16:39
oh sorry hehehe maybe spanish then, im pretty sure that isnt portuguese :D

Besides English, Spanish is easy to learn and it's cool.
2013-12-31 16:56
Really depends on your native language. Spanish people will find it easier to learn other latin languages such as Portuguese or Italian.

2013-12-31 23:26
English for sure, lol guys thats why its common language
2013-12-31 17:57
Dude I live in Portugal and belive me it's one of the hardest ones to learn, at least comparing Portuguese to English, English is like a child comparing to Portuguese. ^^, One easy language for me is French, I'd suggest you to learn it ^^,
2013-12-31 17:57
É lixado porque temos varias expressoes para uma coisa e mesmo assim temos de ter cuidado com o que se diz XD
2013-12-31 23:28
the easiest european language is italian. most of you are completely clueless. also, about english: if you're not a native speaker, it's easy to learn the basics to be able to communicate, but near impossible to master.
2013-12-31 18:04
Haha memo mano, eu tenho 14 anos e vivo em Portugal já a uns 9, fui a escola aos 6 e agora tou no nono. Portugues e uma beca lixado ^^, Feliz Ano Novoo !@@@

2013-12-31 18:22
In my opinion Easiest : spanish Hardest : indonesian or russian
2013-12-31 18:11
Russian? Don't think so. I know it's slavic language, so it could be "easy" for Czech, but still think Russian is easier than Polish...
2013-12-31 18:14
i'm pretty sure russian and slovenian are the hardest slavic languages to learn.
2013-12-31 18:26
I'd say Bulgarian, though... I don't know much about Bulgarian, though that's definitely the one I can make the least sense of.
2013-12-31 18:39
i study macedonian, it's very close to bulgarian and it isn't that difficult (comparing to eg. serbian) bulgarian and macedonian have some weird grammatical things, eg. adjectives and nouns can end with -ta, -to, and -ot. it makes them sound really fucking weird, but that is very easy to learn. it took me 2 days. eg. a faculty = fakultet; THE faculty = fakultetot
2013-12-31 19:09
For me Bulgarian is very hard lol. My girlfriend is Bulgarian, to teach me 4/5 insults she needed about 2 weeks. :o
2013-12-31 19:33
Honestly, I like russian languange coz for me its liar but the bad things that I don't really understand their weird character.
2013-12-31 18:57

When I moved in Italy I knew only "Hi!", "How are you!" After 2 months here people would never think I was Romanian. 6 years later, I can speak Italian better than most of Italians, so I guess is pretty easy.
2013-12-31 19:31
although romanian is a roman language :) but yea, italian is quite easy to learn for eg. slavic people too
2013-12-31 19:36
Yeah :] Auguri fratello slavico :]
2013-12-31 19:39
es facile per tutti, is that right ?I tried to say it's easy for everyone, but I have never learnt italian, i just know some words that i mixed up :)
2013-01-04 17:02
"E' facile per tutti". Is not that hard, just a couple of weeks and you can learn it.
2013-01-04 17:18
mathematics the language of physics, and therefore the language of the entire universe, since everyone can agree 2+2=4 (in base 10) now the only thing we could argue is if base 10 is the best base , since an alien race with 12 fingers might learn math in base 12, but it's still the same math.
2013-12-31 19:09

2013-12-31 19:42
cause its almost the same :D
2013-12-31 19:43
dont bet on it you might understand what we say but depends on what matter you are talking
2013-12-31 23:30
I don't know, but spanish it's pretty easy for me :D
2013-12-31 19:45

You cant take it like that, everything depends where are you from, btw Estonian is a very hard language. Don't know even what to recommend. German might be easy, as it is some way similiar to english.

2013-12-31 22:24
spanish for sure
2013-12-31 22:34
I don't know about teaching you the entire language, but I could teach any of you to READ korean text in one day.
2013-12-31 22:39
Depends on your mother tongue. (SVO, VSO, common lexical roots, etc)
2013-12-31 22:51
Spanish i think. If you manage to learn it, then Portuguese, Italian, and Romanian will be easier to learn (Or the same with Spanish if you decide to start with Portuguese / Italian / Romanian. I just picked up Spanish because, of those i mentioned, it is the one that has the most speaking people.)
2013-12-31 23:26
Spanish is actually the easiest one from the latin based languages. I hear and I understand pretty much everything they're saying but when I hear especially Romanian I don't understand shit of what they're saying.
2013-01-05 01:25
same happens to me with Portuguese and ofc i don't understand anything of Romanian except for some similar words :P
2013-01-05 03:56
Spanish, french and italian. :p
2013-12-31 23:40
I thought German was pretty managable, and I learned french in grade school; not sure how much of that stuck around. I'm sure it has plenty to do with what you're already familiar with and how those rules match new conventions.
2013-12-31 23:54
German is pretty much advanced English.
2013-01-01 17:18
It's pretty pointless to ask it here. 90% of the repliers have no facts at all in their knowledge, just some random thoughts. Just go to google and search for proven facts and actual data from trustworthy sites.
2013-12-31 23:56
English is easy, but not for its pronunciation. At least big contrast with my native language(lettish), as we pronounce most of letters diractly, a as [a], b as [b], but in english it`s all fucked up in comparison. A lot letters have reversed pronoucation, like "a" pronounces as [ei], while "e" pronounces as [i:], but "i" itself pronounces as [ai]. Don`t make sense to me.

2013-01-01 12:00
Spanish/German But id say it depends on where you're from. If English is your first language then French should be the easiest. Dutch would be a nightmare to learn i think :D sounds like baby having a stroke
2013-01-01 01:50
It depends. German is pretty easy for us swedes.
2013-01-01 02:09
I have studied German, French, Spanish I found German was the easiest, Spanish is alright and French for me was very difficult.
2013-01-01 03:21
esperanto, i believe
2013-01-01 03:30
easiest. Spanish Italian Portuguese Indonesian French Swedish Danish Norwegian Hindi/Urdu Turkish Hardest. 1.Mandarin 2.Polish 3.Arabic 4.Hungarian 5.Japanese 6.English 7.Finnish 8.Basque 9.Lithuanian 10.Icelandic
2013-01-01 04:09
Did you learn all of those?
2013-01-01 04:10
Nooo, i know some spanish, danish, norwegian, turkish alot of english, a bit of finnish, and some word in japanese/mandarin
2013-01-01 04:14
Dansk er sgu da sindssygt svært at lære, hvis man ikke kommer fra Sverige eller Norge :D

2013-01-01 09:05
no, finnish is harder ofcourse. sorry i made a mistake ^^

2013-01-01 09:27
French easy ? English and Finish hard ? /facepalm
2013-01-01 11:03
yes. english is one of the hardest languages to learn and pronounce. And finish is one of the hardest languages to learn, yes. and dude, im talking hours. English is maybe not the hardest language to learn for us swedes. but if you look overall, english is so damn hard for alot of people. example: swedish, it ofcourse depends where you are from. but lets say that you're fron norway. it can take you about 50 hours to learn swedish, but if you are from poland it can take 400 hours. and english for alot of people can take 700 hours to learn to just understand the words.

if the english is so hard, so why are we talking in english now?? wheres the logic?

the logic? most of us had english for at least 10 years in school, watched movies and series in english for many years and communicated in english for some years as well. of course most people manage english with that background. you're not really that good at writing in english by the way, which is quite ironic.

2013-01-01 09:36
Agree. Bahasa (Indonesian) has really simple grammar. But I guess in general asian languages (Japanese, Chinese, Korean) are quite difficult to learn. Other than that I'd say English is one of the easiest.

Hmm, I guess Dutch aint that easy since most people cant pronounce the G in our language :P or ch wich also forms a G sometimes, Example : school in dutch you say the ch as a g with this word, and in english you dont even pronounce the h in school :P

2013-01-01 13:35
seriously people it just depends what is your native language, if it's germanic, slavic etc. then other language from that group is easiest
2013-01-01 13:45
I say english fosho!
2013-01-01 13:50
English is one of the most complex languages there is. Easiest.. I'd say maybe Spanish
2013-01-01 14:04
Are you joking ??
2013-01-01 14:22
I guess it depends on your native language. French 2 English and German 2 english is very easy.
2013-01-01 20:38
that only shows how bad english is. still the easiest.
2013-01-02 16:25
the guy who wrote that is either clueless or biased. These are only minor difficulties, made even smaller by the fact that English is so widespread that it becomes almost natural to speak it properly Most of these difficulties are also present in the language English derived from (the old forms of French & German.), which are not even the hardest languages to learn themselves.
2013-01-05 15:35
I'm not saying English is the hardest, just not as easy as people assume just because it's commonplace. Also it depends what linguistic skill level you're talking about - as you say the fact that English is widespread means that many speak it, but not necessarily to a high standard.
2013-01-06 17:17
you have a point indeed, it's not exactly as easy as people think, especially British English. But I still think it's pretty easy to master it at a decent level
2013-01-06 17:26

as I heard Spanish is one of the easiest beside English puta for the win !
2013-01-01 17:26
Spanish verbs are hard. The easiet is esperanto.
2013-01-01 17:58
i would suggest you to learn a language you can hear often. english is that easy because we are 24/7 watching movies, listening songs w/e.

english is pretty easy (on basic level), and the hardest is hungarian
2013-01-02 17:03
I doubt there is such a thing as a language that's easy to learn. It depends on your mother tongue, for example for Nordic/germanic countries learning English is really easy, while for me being French, Spanish & Italian sound much more natural. Some languages are just less different from yours.
2013-01-02 20:01

Agree. But Lithuanian is pretty easy for a lot of diff nationality ppl to learn.

"Who wants to learn Macedonian?" One guy stated Macedonian is an easy language to learn but yet no one's saying the same as you do about Macedonian's difficulty and tendency.

It's always useful to learn the language of neighbour countries, many kinds of jobs lead you to be in contact with them.
2013-01-03 14:46
Lithuania hx1 
It doesn't have as big tendency as for example Russian but still a decent percentage of ppl tend to learn it if they decide to live in LTU.
2013-01-03 02:53
I really doubt that some russian want to learn lithuanian, russian is used in all soviet countries, at least most of the people know our lang
2013-01-04 15:13
most people near Russia, but outside of it, it's really hard to meet someone who knows russian.
2013-01-04 16:18
russia,ukraine,belarus,kazakhstan lithuania,latvia,estonia - most of people in these countries know russian at least a bit
2013-01-04 16:21
Off topic : Do they emigrate to Russia ?PPl from Belarus, latvia etc.
2013-01-04 16:25
I think they learning russian in school as secondary lang
2013-01-04 16:36
It wasn't my question :P, but i found on the internet, I was wondering if Russia has non russian people living in it. Polish, georgians, etc.
2013-01-04 16:40
I doubt about polish but everything is possible ))
2013-01-04 16:46
Poland isn't from USSR and I doubt they know russian even a little bit

I'm not talking of language ><, it was an off topic, I was talking of immigration, nevermind :P

I can't say that they are massively immigrating to here, but some of them come here for a work or studying, and so on.
2013-01-05 03:34
No, secondary is english. Also, only in some city's near Russia border you can live without knowing LV and LTU language.
2013-01-05 01:57
Lithuania hx1 
Actually it's true what you've said but if Russians decide to live in LTU then they at least learn it to understand it instead of using it to communicate.
2013-01-04 19:00
yes fosho I only said that maybe just few russians ever been learning lithuanian)
2013-01-04 19:07
Funny, I actually have two Lithuanian chicks on my steam list who claim to be trilingual. And you surely know which three languages I mean. Though that includes mixing pre-war Polish vocabulary with Russian grammar and Lithuanian orthography and thinking that that would do :-D.
2013-01-04 22:10
yeah I guess some are still a bit simpler, for example English has very few tenses while there are more than 15 ways to conjugate a verb in French
2013-01-02 21:01

Spanish is the most easeast to learn, then goes Japanese, truly beatiful language and very simple. Don't learn Lithuanian lol it is one of the toughest

why would anyone want to learn lithuanian regardless of difficulty?

2013-01-03 14:49
more like the mother of all european languages
2013-01-03 15:38
not even that.. there is no "mother" of languages. we can say that the old greek and to some greater extend the latin language had influence on european languages, mostly on the roman languages like italian, spanish, french etc. and also english since great britain was occupied by the romans but the germanic languages like german, danish, dutch, swedish etc. aren't influenced that much. that is because the roman empire never included germania and the northern germanic/scandinavian tribes.

double that ! :)
2013-01-04 16:19
Depends where you're from It has to do with that before the internet existed and phones when different tribes and communitys were formed they had "accents" which later developed to own langueges It's no coincidence Swedish and Danish are so alike
2013-01-04 18:33
It has to do with migrations, ease of transportation, state expansion and at last, radio broadcasting not with phones lol. And it even has a name:
2013-01-04 18:39
Are you serious or not, just asking? I know i should've used a comma after phones but you can't interpret it like that
2013-01-04 18:43
Not really, I knew you didn't mean that, however it could easily be misinterpreted in that way. I mean, I would have said "before radio existed" and that I think would be more to the point.
2013-01-04 18:53
The language you find the hardest may depend from where you come from. People from southern europe may find easier to understand other latin languages and learn fairly well some English based language like German(think i'm not bullshitting on this one) but find it really hard to understand Eastern Europe or Nordic Languages like Swedish or Polish. The same applies for all the remaining countries.
2013-01-05 01:30

2013-02-21 22:18
not even close to any european language tho
2013-02-22 11:26
I don't think the topic is about which language is the most comparable with the other languages in Europe. The topic is about the easiest language to learn. For me, Albanian is fairly easy to learn. It almost pronounces the same as when you are reading it. Straight foreword so to say.. All inn all, this is my opinion. If you disagree I respect that.
2013-02-22 12:12
i am merely saying albanian is far from similar to italian. duhh. talking about its origin and construction, not how difficult it is.
2013-02-22 13:48
it`s an indo-european language a branch on its own , it`s a descendant language from illyrian

Definately not german. German is a freaking disgrace to learn :D
2013-02-22 05:43
German is super easy to learn if english is your first language. Ich spreche Deutsch. Spielst du CS:GO? Ja, aber spiele ich kein.
2013-02-22 06:03
Everyone who teaches german in class eventually says german is the hardest language to learn (if you want to master it), what you just said was as if i'd say "I speak English. You play CS:GO? Yes, but i not."
2013-02-22 07:25
No it's not the hardest, sure it does get harder the more you want to "master" it but compare that to learning Chinese or Russian (pronunciation is harder and there are a lot of new letters to learn just to begin with) Also French is so hard to pronounce without sounding very VERY wrong and the language has some weird exceptions and ways of saying things that make no sense (at least for me) unless you are a native speaker. Learning German was a LOT easier, although I certainly didn't master it. I can guarantee you that Finnish is also one language that would take forever to master if you are not native speaker
2013-02-22 08:59
French is one of the easier languages to learn lol, German Grammar is just the pain in the arse.
2013-02-22 11:25
how can you say that when you never really had to learn it? doesn't make sense, better be quiet. what this finnish guy says is correct.
2013-02-22 14:02
No its definitely not lol. I say this based on having studied German, French, Spanish and Swedish. Out of those three, French is by far the hardest to pick up. I'm not saying its not doable but the pronunciation in French is a huge thing to learn and you must start practicing it right when you start. If you don't know the pronunciation your French skills are completely useless, this part is so much easier with every other language I mentioned. German is easy to pronounce, same with Swedish and Spanish. Although all of these languages have hard grammatical stuff when you progress enough, still the basics of German are pretty straightforward and you can be on a pretty good level when the hard stuff start coming
2013-02-23 09:49
tweeday, the reason why german is easy for english-native speakers, is because it is relatively close on the language tree. French is an entirely different language from english and german, located on the italic-latin branch. English and german are from the germanic language branch, so relatively learning languages on the same branch are easier because the languages relate by similar words, sentence structure, etc. Learning a language outside of the branch, i.e. French, Greek, Japanese, etc., these are entirely different, wherein you must learn their new alphabet, etc. For example, japanese has no spaces in between words, sentence structure is extremely different from english, and their symbols represent parts of words, not letters. The English language grew from the germanic language, relatively recently, about 1 to 2 thousand years ago. This is why the language is so similar to german, and how old-english was even more similar to german. Sorry for the late reply, but when talking about language difficulties, you should put natively-learned language in respect. (for japanese, chinese will be easier to learn than english natives, because japanese is associated with chinese (language), matter of fact they borrow chinese symbols for their language (kanji) and their katakana came from a simplification of chinese characters.)

ADA/python. WAIT... nvm!
2013-02-22 10:14
It all depends on what languages you already speak. Like Estonian language would be really difficult to learn for almost everyone, for Finns it would be kind of easy to learn because our languages are very similar. If English is your mother tongue learning German or Swedish isn't really that difficult, because of the similarities of the languages.

Depends, of your language, for example, I speak spanish, and for me Italian is quite easy, because the gramatic is pretty similar, what you have to learn is the pronunciation and vocabulary mainly. Languages that are similar are easier.

german is actually quite easy to get on a decent level for some small talk and such since germans usually use only two tenses in everday life. (perfect tense) for everything what happened in the past and (present tense) for everything what happens now/at the moment and in the future. mastering the language is a different story of course but that's like it is in every language.

next year in my highschool ill have to choose to learn a fourth language between spanish/italian/german, im not really into italian nor spanish, but people are saying its really hard to learn german and its gonna waste me a lot of time, do you think thats true? EDIT: i already speak/try to speak Arabic/french/english

i don't know, it really depends on personal preference. if you want something different you should give it a try. but since you already know french, spanish would be the easiest i think.

If you know english, which it seems you do quite well, learning german is extremely easy, and will be beneficial for you. I->Ich hair->haare etc. All you need to know is that in german, verbs mostly go on the second word in the sentence, and is also usually at the end of sentences.

I'd say Spanish, presuming you already speak English.

The easiest ones are English and Spanish in my opinion, hardest are Finnish/Estonian/Hungarian (it's kinda fact) since they are from Finno-Ulgric language family, period ;]

I think european languages are not that hard. Try learning arabic, my mother langage, still shit at it. I learned persian pretty easily though.

I am actually not sure but I'd probably say German because Germany's grammatical construction almost contains a complete set of rules; the grammar is complex and logical.

POLISH FO' SHO' not well, for me it would be English, German and probably Russian.

Afrikaans like the article suggests must be one of the easier languages. It's Dutch (Germanic based) with grammar stripped down to basics. You just have to know the right vocabulary and put the words together From that article: Unlike English though, the Afrikaans language is not inflective. This means that with some memorized vocabulary, you can build sentences as you would a Lego tower, stacking words without worry of conjugation. In Afrikaans, there is no conjugation of verbs (write, wrote, written), gender (think gato or gata in Spanish) or pronouns (my, mine; who, whose). In other words, you’ll hardly be a grammar slave if you take up this logical language.
