    Great answer, jaydawg808. Got to agree with you on English; and Japanese, Chinese, etc. is where angels fear to tread for many so far as learning languages go.

    Hi Genna! You are so right about French. Got it in mind once to watch a bunch of French films hoping to pick up on it some, but failed miserably lol. Good point with the English. My, how it must be just to learn all different meanings for one word!

    Heavens! Just thinking about learning Arabic or Tagalog made the tummy jump lol. And yes, learning a language around speakers of it is certainly the best way. Good to hear about Japanese and Chinese, too, liesl5858!

    How true about the next to be learned and just starting. The Scandinavian languages are challenging but fun...I speak a little Danish having spent some time in that country. Good going with the learning, tsmog. Tak!

    Absolutely, M.T., it sure is. You've expressed exactly my thoughts on how tough English can be for non-speakers. Maybe a good question would be "What is the easiest language to learn?" Spanish would probably make the list for many.

    I believe you alright, Anita! How is the Croatian language different than, say, Slovenian or Czech?

    My gosh effer! great going with all those languages! What I've found about many of the Asian languages is they tend to think on a circular and repetitive level where we are rather linear and direct. Ones not better than the other just cultural suppos
