Easiest (and Hardest) Languages to Learn - Examined Existence

Easiest (and Hardest) Languages to Learn

The following infographic depicts the easiest and hardest languages to learn (for a native English speaker).  Personally, I think English is the hardest language to learn out of all the languages I’ve learned but this infographic doesn’t feature English as one of the languages.  It is interesting to note that some of the hardest languages to learn are Asian languages on this infographic.  Yes, Asian languages are vastly different than English and the many languages it borrows from.  But objectively, Japanese and especially Chinese is much easier to learn than English in my opinion.  Anyway, take a look at the infographic and let us know what you think.
