    I was just kidding/jocking If you think this language is easy to pick up it's ok with me

    That word may be translated as this, by the way, although I'm not sure enough,

    Re: hardest language to learn?

    I think Finnish is the hardest. Arabic is hard for me because of the verbs.

    Finnish has easy pronunciation and spelling, but it's just... hard.
    Try learning it!

    Mandarin isn't really that hard, but it's just different.
    The same goes with Japanese and Korean. It just requires (like most languages) to think with a new slate and try to not translate in your mind to your native language when learning new words.

    Re: hardest language to learn?

    For some odd reason the language I have and still have the most difficulty with is Urdu, even after living over 2 years with my daughter and her husband and all they spoke in the house was Urdu. I think after 2 years the only word I learned was Biryani and I'm not too certain on how to spell it.

    . I think Urdu can be quite hard unless you've grown up with it. Reading it is especially difficult. The pure form of Urdu has lotsa arabic and persian in it, which not a lot of people use in every day language.

    yupp.. both originated from Malay...

    the main difference between both is that Indonesian has lots of Dutch-origin words and Malaysian has lots of English-origin words...

    Because there are millions of Indonesian immigrants in Malaysia plus Indonesian movies, dramas and muisic are so popular in Malaysia... Malaysians have no difficulty understanding Indonesian Language... But I dont know about whether the Indonesians would have problems understanding us....

    Re: hardest language to learn?

    From what I remember reading it seems that many people consider the old whistling language of the Canary Islands and the women's language of Tierra d'el Fuego as being the most difficult. Neither has ever been translated and no non-native has ever learned either.

    Re: hardest language to learn?

    I've heard Chinese Mandarin is the hardest language to learn, Classical Arabic is not simple but it is not hard to learn though the many dialects and their variations may form a problem for Arabic language learners since people don't use Classical Arabic in their daily life.

    Re: hardest language to learn?

    Arabic is the hardiest
    believe me, even Arabian don't speak it grammatically

    I'm talking about the original Arabic, which we don't deal with it now..

    who said that the quran is an easy to be understood?.. there is a rough rules to explain it, so no one can explain the quran

    but the Arabic language is very sweetly language, and you taste the sentences

    it is difficult, but when you learn it you will love it
