It depends what your native language is.

There are studies on this and easily found using google. I think for english speakers dutch and norwegian were supposed to be easier.

Esperanto would probably be considered the easiest if you count it as a language for your purposes. It is intentionally made easy/easier, though this would probably for european language native speakers. I doubt a chinese or japanese speaker would think it much easier than other european languages.

I especially think German is easier than Dutch but maybe that's just me. But I do agree that it really does depends on your native language and affinity for languages.

this is one article about it, they seem to evaluate it based on common words, sentence structure and pronunciation.

The easiest language to learn is always the one spoken by the people responsible for your upbringing.

If you think French has lots of silent vowels your school English teacher obviously hasn't yet introduced you to such advanced English vocabulary as the words 'cake', 'like' and 'puke'.

The Foreign Service Institute has a list of estimates for the amount of time required for English speakers to attain proficiency in various foreign languages. It considers Danish, Dutch, French, Italian, Norwegian, Portugese, Romanian, Spanish and Swedish to be the easiest languages for native English speakers to learn.

Haha, you can learn a language once you have a passion for it. I checked the article, however, I don't agree with some of their language choices e.g. Esperanto, Italian, Portuguese and Spanish. I tend to find these languages hard lol, or maybe it's my lack of passion for them.

Also Duolingo has an Esperanto course

It's like Spanish but much easier.

A lot of my friends said German was easy to learn - easy to pronounce and the grammar is fairly simple to grasp. When it came to dropping a language at school, many picked to carry on with German. I was the odd one one and picked French ahah

No really, I would say scandinavian languages are really easy to learn. Mainly Swedish and Norweigan are easy. Also some say German is easy but I am bad at all languages so i find it pretty hard
