What's their definition of proficiency? Because it's kinda hard to achieve proficiency in Finnish in 44 weeks, if you're just studying from a book.

The same goes for Russian as well imo

>non indo-european languages are hard for indo-european language speakers
>it's easier for a speaker of a germanic language to learn another germanic language than a slavic language
great revelation

How the fuck is Russian in the same tier as Hebrew and Finnish?

Anon your levantine arabic has some influences from indo-european languages so it's easier than learning gulf arabic for exemple
>>
>>51091467
Shit.

They imply that just because you need to learn a new writing system means the language is hard.
Take Japanese. The language isn't hard. The language itself is fairly simple.

Interesting stuff, sempai, I'd like to see such infographics for everybody, not only for Anglos, though.
It's weird they count only the Worst Korea as a Korean speaking country.
>>
>>51091599
You don't need to wear those wings they're stupid things.

I've heard that Irish is the hardest indo-european languages. I'm into linguistics and Irish has the most fiendishly complex grammar system I've ever seen

Old Irish is harder

Hungarian is supposed to be extremely difficult.
>>
>>51095594
Welsh is less complex than Irish
>>
>>51091517
Apparantly Hebrew isn't all that bad. Israelibros correct me if I'm wrong, but the IDF has like 4 week intensive course that has many speaking near fluent.
>>
>>51095848
It's about the same as Dutch
>>
>>51095683
ah..yes?
>>
>>51091532
nope. I might agree Arabic is actually easier to learn than people might think based on the first impression, but definitely isn't easy.
>>
>>51091405
Perhaps for English speakers. But when you think about it, for native speakers of those other languages, English is pretty difficult to learn too. I mean, just think of how convoluted English spelling is, as well as the rules and the many exceptions to them.
>>
>>51091405
>hurr three different writing systems
But hiragana and katakana take almost no effort to learn so why even say that?
>>
>>51091532
Doesn't arabic have a shitty amount of resources?
>>
>>51091532
Chinese is very easy.
中文非常容易。

He's a shill for the site

See how he filled out the name box. I wish 4chan still had "report for commercial activity" option. Hiro would do well to bring it back.

Thinking about learning Arabic as they say its good to know the language of your enemies, but I'm having trouble just learning basic german.

Having a town with a long name and having an odd orthography doesn't really make it grammatically complex.
