it would depend on from where you are. and how good and fast your tongue can adjust from different languages. like us Filipinos, we can speak English but not as good as American or other people using it. Or if you try to learn our languange too, it'll be hard for you too. it would take time. for me, nothing's really hard to learn. as long as you're motivated to learn it.

Hi! I'm not sure how many languages are there on earth! But I think the most difficult one to learn is Arabic. I am currently living in Middle East for more than a year now and I'm still struggling to understand the words or even to pronounce such basic words, I tried hard to just learn the basic, but whenever I tried to used these words no ones understand me. So I guess it's my pronounciation, not enough, rrrrrrrrrr, lol! I've also lived in India for almost a year and I think I have the same problem, although it is easier to communicate with them because most of the people there can speak English. I mean there's also alot of people can speak English here, but not in most places that I need to get some things.

Woooh, Arabic, I think it is difficult, I've read something written in Arabic, I just saw some symbols which basically look like the same for me, and they write from right to left, right?

I could not begin to count how many different languages there are. There are some languages that have differnet variations to it. I suppose that would make it a different language, in my opinion. As far as which language might the most difficult to learn would be the oriental languages, like Japanese, Chinese, etc. Whenever I've heard people speaking these langauges, it almost sounds like they're yelling at each other. It might be just the way they talk. Who knows.

Haha, I know what you're talking about, I'm a Chinese, so, of course I know what Chinese people talking, but when I heard somebody talking in, says indian (no offense), I don't know what they are talking and they sounds like yelling too. There is so much fun to learn language.

Hello alphabetagamma! For me the very difficult language to learn is chinese. Aside from their language is really different they also have different alphabet that it's hard to learn and write.

A lot of people say English is actually the hardest language because it has so many exceptions. To people like us who speak it, it doesn't seem so hard, but that's because we've been accustomed to it our entire lifes. When we try to learn other languages, it seems more difficuly, but most are actually straigh-forward and have easy rules. Once you get the hang of the grammar and learn enough of the vocabulary, they are pretty simple. However, for people who speak different lagnuages, trying to learn English is very difficult. There are so many confusing grammar rules and exceptions that they're often isn't any rules set. It can be very confusing to learn. I'm just happy I learned it from birth!
