  • Hello dear,
    Impressive to know would be one of the hardest languages such as Russian, Japanese, Chinese, etc...
    But for a useful language, I would suggest you go for Spanish, as for it is as popular and useful as English and French ;-)
    I speak English, French and Lebanese Arabic.
    I have also learned a bit of Spanish when I was still a teenager, at school and it is beautiful.
    Nowadays, I am using an application to learn Russian which is "Duo Lingo"

    My own personal advice, don't waste your time on Arabic as for it is useless. Even Arabic countries are using English and French.

    Frankly, choose something useful and impressive at the same time ;-)

  • I don't really know what an "impressive" language is by your definition or standards but try learning Tagalog (Filipino). Unlike many other languages, Tagalog doesn't sound monotonous and is quite easy to learn & understand.

  • English is one of the hardest languages to learn because it has a lot of irony and it breaks it's own rules often. I think the most impressive language to speak as a second language is gaelic because it's relatively unpopular and sounds very cool and I'm Irish so

  • Icelandic or Russian, those friggin tongue twister man, they are so difficult to word XD

    I'm English so I wouldn't consider the English language difficult or impressive. :/

  • I would say 'other'. I know Dutch, English, French, German and I can hold conversations in Japanese, but it really doesn't matter what language you know. I think it's about variation. Knowing English, Spanish and simplified Chinese will get you very far.

  • If you can read Chinese, that's amazing to me. Every word has its own symbol and you just have to memorize them all. It's like having a 10,000 letter alphabet

    • Thanks for the correction! Sometimes I make mistakes, but in part of learning languages I need to master my own. So by you correcting me you help me in my pursuit of my career.

  • Arabic, japanese, chinese (mandarin) becasue all of them are very hard to learn.

    • Tf 😂😂😂

    • Well Swahili is one of the hardest language to learn as a new speaker, it also consists of some Arabic words ( and I may assume you already know how hard Arabic language is).

    • Also being an Arab myself, speaking it yet, I was getting a C in Arabic class as well as in Swahili class

  • Try some Arabic !!
    And Japanese !!

  • I'm honestly impressed if a foreigner can master Finnish. The language is a pain in the ass to learn, even for Finns.

  • easily Japanese and Khoisan languages.
    Unless you grew up speaking and writing it, Japanese to me is one of those languages you can never get quite perfectly.
    Khoisan languages just fascinate me bc i could never manage to change my click pitches.

  • French was the hardest for me, I actually gave up. I was born and raised in Japan so Japanese is easiest for me, English second, Korean third and French fourth (even though I can barely speak French...)

  • I think learning foreign languages in general is impressive. Knowing a language because it's your mother tongue isn't exactly impressive.

  • I think Arabic or Latin would be cause they're always in movies and stuff, it would be cool to know them, plus I dont think theyre very common so it would be surprising for people if you knew them

  • ! Xóõ is both impressive and extremely complex, not to mention probably impossible for non-natives to master.
