What is the hardest language for English speakers to learn? Rumor has it that it’s Finnish or maybe Arabic… Well, the people at zidbits.com have gathered actual data.
The ease of learning a new language is largely determined by the relationship your target language has to your native tongue, and the complexity of the new language. Languages that are historically related may share similar vocabulary, syntax and grammar. Several additional factors play into the difficulty you may have learning another language: how much time you have to spend, availability of language resources that are available to you – and your own motivation.
