What is the Easiest Language to Learn?

Learning any new language can often be challenging. However, it can also be one of your greatest assets in practicing international businesses. The language barrier can become a negotiation barrier.

Let us preface this with that each learner is different, and the difficulty in learning a language depends on a variety of factors. This includes the complexity of the language, how self-motivated you are, and the resources that are available for that specific language.

There is also a factor of which language is learned first. Some people who first tackled a more complex language, such as Japanese or Arabic, could struggle with structurally simpler languages such as French and Spanish.

So while the difficulty of learning a language can vary individually, we can use a combination of these factors to assess the difficulty of a few different language courses for native English speakers.

This infographic gives some of this generic information, and could prove to be a useful guide to many who are trying to decide what language courses in the UK or worldwide to take.

    After 3 years of learning French, I’m still not fluent, not even close. Maybe it’s just me, but it’s not the easiest language at all, haha…
