Which one do you find the most difficult language to learn?

Your mother tongue is an important deciding factor when it comes to difficulty. For example, native speakers of Italian seem to learn Spanish and Portuguese rather easily despite the complex grammatical structures of the Spanish language. On the same basis, Chinese speakers will probably pick up Japanese faster than people whose first language uses the Roman alphabet. What about you? Which one do you consider to be the most difficult foreign language to learn? Is it English, Spanish, French, Japanese, etc?

Chinese is probably the hardest. I know I tried to learn it and failed miserably. I guess Arabic would come in as second hardest. It’s usually hard for first timers and the grammer is sooooo (@_@)

Well, English doesn´t seem to me that difficult, although I am a ¨latino girl¨...Chinese is not as difficult as Japanese, ´cause they have these signs for whole words… I think I could never learn an African language, these are odd…

Well seems most people think it’s hard to learn Chinese. For me, of course not cuz i’m from china :-)
Now I’m learning french, it’s much harder than english. Maybe it’s the most difficult language in the world.
