    if the lang you wanna learn similar to your lang then supposed to

    completely agree on the turkish ( uzgunum bilmiyorum turkiye ) !!!

    the hardest language i think is Pushto !!! I find the pakistani pushto hard as it is and thats my mother tongue _ but then the afghan dialect just takes it to a whole new level and dimension

    I find Urdu hard.
    Urdu is really easy if you know or recognize Hindi or Punjabi. But really writing is really hard.

    Re: hardest language to learn?

    English in right grammar.

    I speak and write in very very bad English.
    I learn English by English book or English magazine. Without teacher. Sometimes I practising my English when a foreigner came to my place.
    But, many of them doesn't understand my English !.

    Someone told me : " If you want to can speak English, you must speak English to everyone, no matter they will understand you or no ".
    That why I join in this forum, not in my origin language forum.

    How about you, brothers, sisters ? do you understand my English ?.

    English is one of the hardest languages to learn for non-English speakers.

    According to my French teacher.

    Your English is fine. It's good that you're learning from books and magazines, because they can teach you cultural figures of speech and the like, which you might not learn in an academic environment.

    If you have the means, an English teacher would be really effective - you'd probably speak better English than many native English speakers.

    Although German is closer to English than French, which is helpful for English-speaking learners.

    What's kind of funny is that French and German syntax is almost identical to that of Hindi/Urdu and Punjabi.

    Re: hardest language to learn?

    English isn't that difficult really. I can say only the tensses which I haven't still learnt very well is hard. The second difficulty of English is that it's a word language in which every situation has a different word.
