Spanish is the only other language I know and it was super easy.
Chinese looks pretty impossible.

I've heard non native English speakers say that English is the most difficult due to all its needless conjugation

English is easy from a linguistic standpoint overall, where it trips non native speakers up is in pronunciation. No accents on anything means 'minute' and 'minute' look exactly the same.
Pretty much every eastern asian language looks like a challenge and a half to me.

Really, it's all just a matter of perspective. If going by pure location (and not individual skill);

A russian will be able to speak japanese better than a frenchman.

A dutchman will be able to speak english better than an egyptian

And no one will ever be able to speak Estonian except Estonians, guaranteed.

Spanish is pretty easy tbh. I found it way easier to pronounce than French, and the grammar is way more straightforward than Russian -- and even that is much closer to English than to Chinese or Japanese. it's not really a matter of location, it's a matter of how closely the languages are related.

As someone who's at a language school, the consensus is that it's one of the middle eastern languages.

Either Persian Farsi or Levantine Arabic.

So far, German. I gave up years ago, I may try it again. I'm learning French right now, and will probably move on to ASL after I feel like I'm fluent. French is okay. The pronunciation is wonky, and I hate the lack of a simpler past tense conjugation. Also, I get some of it mixed up with Spanish, since I'm so used to it and there are some similarities but also many differences.

Of those I've studied, Japanese because the kanji and certain nuances that aren't immediately intuitive to English speakers make it quite a long path to fluency. In the world, I've no doubt there are harder ones. And, as has already been pointed out, it's depends almost entirely on your native language and any languages you've already learned.

Noah fence but Spanish is easy.

Yeah Chinese is really hard. Even when you are learning and feel like you're succeeding, there's just this whole other level of stuff you don't know about the language.


Finnish is also a very tough language grammatically but at least you can read it.

This whole thread makes me kinda think we should just eradicate all other languages and make everyone learn American English

Hey now. Just because he is an inept loser with no social skills and a complete inability to talk to women doesn't mean that you should laugh at him. He's already a forever-alone, shut-in loser that has never had and will never have an intimate relationship and he has to live with that his whole. Isn't that bad enough with having to make laugh at him?

On the other hand, maybe he doesn't know what language women speak since the only word they have ever told him is "no" which means it could be like any language really.

If you can enjoy doing kanji you'll be alright. If not, good luck.
