    Vraiment ? J'ai pensé que la plus difficile partie d'apprendre le français pour beaucoup de personnes était quelques choses comme le subjonctif et les temps/modes plus compliqués.
    Et oui, je suis en accord que les genres sont très difficile à apprendre. Même maintenant j'ai des problèmes avec ceux ; o ;

    Yeah kind of. I haven't taken any Spanish courses and I can understand my friends who are native speakers :I Pero yo no hablo español bien. Solo un poco.

    (double post cuz this thread has died sorry)

    I have rediscovered duolingo and it has gotten so much better than when I first tried it. It's pretty fantastic imo. I'm using it to relearn French and I'm nearing halfway through the Italian course. I just need somewhere to speak it now

    I'm currently studying German(I'm still a beginner :c ), the most confusing thing for me is the da/wo compounds, and other things I'm having problems memorizing.

    I've been trying to learn Japanese for years, and I mean years. It's been a difficult progress, but I can pronounce most Japanese well, but only know a few phrases so far. Still can't read it yet.

    I looked up Irish writing and pronunciation. You pronounce the word "Maedhbh" as "Mayv" and you pronounce "An bhfuil" as "An will".

    Why.

    Japanese is really cool. Can you at least read it in romaji?

    Don't worry though, Japanese is supposedly one of the three hardest languages for English speakers to learn (the others being Arabic and Chinese). I commend you for studying it

    If you try to say it out loud like you might in English, it almost starts to make a little bit of sense.
    Welsh is also weird. I still don't get how 'dd' is a 'th' sound, but... sure, okay.

    I want to learn Japanese but it's really hard. DX

    I thought about this, and my sister really likes the idea. My definition of fluency is learning the language itself and then spending time in the country to learn the slang.

    I think Swedish was one of the inspirations for Simlish along with a few others.

    I plan on studying Japanese seriously when I get to college. Right now I study for fun and not particularly hard. I have been learning bits for a long time and I have a good collection of online resources that have really helped (if anyone wants a list just hit me up).

    Another language I want to learn is Welsh. Its a pretty language and I am a big Arthurian fan so that's another motivator. Plus Wales is like, my dream country. I could live happily in Hay on Wye.

    After that I do not know what else I want to learn. Maybe French.
