figured it would be somethin like this

english is the hardest language on earth to learn if you arent native to it. its simply because its a "bastard" language. we borrow from french, latin and german to make up most of our words. add the fact that we have things like onomatopoeia and homonyms, its tough sh*t mayne.

actually english is known to be one of the easiest languages to learn... and its also know that people who study and learn english as a second language usually speak it better than those who have it as a primary... one thing people fail to realize in case on the "engrish" asian sterotype...they have grown accustomed to using there tongue a certain way.. as a spanish speaker may still roll their R's when speak english..

Especially when some letters create the same sounds as others.

Phich & Fish.

A non native speaker might put the first when they meant to put the latter

Chinese isn't as hard as it looks.. This chart specifically speaks to the difficulty of the language from an English Speaker's perspective. Those languages at the Hard end of the spectrum are only hard because they are so fundamentally different from English both with rules, and in it's format. Arabic is not that hard to learn as a language.

There are A LOT of reasons why English is a difficult language.Like stated above, it's a bastard language, so it's missing the uniformity a lot of languages have (Like Greek, Japanese, Spanish where most verb endings are at least similar). There wide latitude of exceptions to the grammar rules also make it difficult to get a fundamental grasp of the word as well, especially because we learn them intuitively.. It truly is an ugly and arbitrary language. Now is it the hardest? I'm not sure. I'm 25 years old and I'm still learning how to use it properly lol...
