Hardest thing with dutch is the crazy-ass sounds we make. All these gargling noises one after another :p Apparently according to some chick that talked about it on youtube, we have different tongue movements....

English has been a breeze for me, as it pretty much grew on me with pokémon games. Never learned any grammatical rules or anything (I didn't even know what "verbs" and "adverbs" were till last year). And now I turn out to speak a better english than most of the American youth... even of the same age. I can even be a grammar nazi around them, which I can't in my native language (dutch)


As for the hardest language, I'd say pretty much anything with a seperate alphabet and writing system. i.e. Japanese, Russian, Hebrew, etc.

Stuff gets easier to figure out if you already know the letters, as most european languages all borrow words from another. Dutch is like a mixture of German, English and French.... mostly german though.

Perry, Like I said before, Russian's a breeze once you get the alphabet down. It's just memorization. Not languages where every word has it's own symbol, THOSE are annoying to learn.

Dude, English is my first and essentially only language and I'll be the first to admit even I have trouble with grammar at times.

So...you sound like a lolcat when you speak it?

That's a language I can totally get behind.

yeah but it sounded utterly confusing when I heard them speak it, cause there's a lot of french in there as well, and they used a lot of slang. But other then that, technically it should be the easiest language to learn.

French. God damn French!

All these rules, all the exceptions to these rules, all the exceptions to the exceptions... All those unnecessary verb tense that nobody uses unless they want to sound SNOB.

Really, the only reason I hear people learn French (Quebec-French, mind you) is because the curses words sounds cool and funny.
