By having a Romance language as my native tongue, I never thought French was very difficult to learn. But as I live in a Scandinavian country, many of my classmates found certain French sounds to be very hard to pronounce: in "je", the J was difficult to pronounce (like the S in measure) and instead some pronounced it as SH.
I find French quite hard to learn but it’s one of my favourite languages. I can pick up German much easier than I can French, but that could be because I find a lot of German shares similarities with English words and for me personally the pronunciation is much easier. I don't think any language is particularly ugly, every language has it's good aspects.
I love Japanese. I did 3 semesters of electives of it and thoroughly enjoyed it, so much so that I'm seriously considering applying to the JET programme. I love the sounds of the language and I'm fascinated by the culture.
Due to the influence of my music tastes, I've recently become quite interested in Finnish. It's just so crazily different from anything I've ever seen before, and tbh I'd like to be able to understand Kotiteollisuus and Stam1na lyrics when I hear them!
What don't I like? Irish. 14 years of learning it in school and I can still barely speak a word. The sound is horrible and I found it very difficult to learn.
i find french easiest to learn. ancient greek is a gorgeous language, and i think russian sounds beautiful. one day i'll learn that!
you know, after 7 years of learning french, i just really don't like to speak it now. i speak it like i speak english - i dont think about the sound or anything, its just there. when i think about it, it just sounds normal and boring and like all one word blur.
whereas german is so beautiful and precise, it's so exact.
and evrit is GORGEOUS, i love it so much.
i really love the sound of Hebrew as well.
German is horrible in my opinon...
I much prefer french ... or even spanish maybe ...
