  • Usually the Orthography, sometimes the word order, depends on the language.

  • Pronunciation has always been troublesome to me.
    And, hey, we have the same name :)

  • It depends on the language.
    Writing right to left in Arabic or Hebrew holds me back from even trying.

  • Definitely the memorization of new words. There are just so many!

    Grammar tends to be pretty damn easy. Then again, I speak one of the weirdest languages in the world.

  • Remembering words is the hardest unless they look alike to their English translation like in Spanish
    Large = Largo
    Soap = Sopa
    Fabric = Fabrica

  • I don't know. I only speak English and Norwegian, I learned English in elementary school so that wasn't a problem because I was young. I had the option to learn either German, French or Spanish aswell, but I'm a lazy fuck, and didn't wanna do that.

  • None of the choices. Hardest part is learning the slang way of saying thing that people who speak that language natively use rather than speaking perfectly.

  • I'm learning Icelandic, and it's A. Grammar is hard, but it's also just a bunch of rules, and if you don't get everything right you'll still be understood.

  • I took 3 years of Spanish and a year of German. I was very fluent in German but I still can't even introduce myself in Spanish. I never could get past the verb conjugation. The teacher really makes all the difference... I personally found German to be way easier though. Vocab was a piece if cake to me

    I took French as a kid too and it was simple. I'm totally making my kids learn a foreign language when they're little.
