Learning a new language is always a difficult task as it requires some effort and consistency. Whenever you start learning new things, there must come some difficulties in your way. Some tasks are easy but some tasks have more complications so they require more effort than simple ones. The same case is for languages, there are some languages that are easy to learn and some are difficult to learn because of their unique linguistic attributes. Difficulty level of any new language also depends on languages that you had already known. E.g. If you are familiar with Arabic language then it is more easy for you to learn Urdu. There may need a great effort for understanding the linguists and Grammar of Urdu language but you have a better edge of Arabic language. Those who are not familiar with Arabic language must face more problems in understanding the basics of Urdu language.
There are some languages that are difficult to learn. Remember I am saying difficult to learn, it doesn’t means that these are impossible to learn. These languages are:
Chinese language is difficult to learn because of its tonal attribute. It has four main tones. The first tone is “flat or high level tone” and is denoted by ‘ ¯ ’, the second tone is called “rising or high rising tone”, third tone is “falling-rising or low tone” and is denoted by ‘ ˇ ’ and the last tone is called “falling or high falling tone” and represented by ‘ ` ’. Due to these tones one may find difficulty in learning Chinese language.
Actually Arabic language is not difficult to learn but people feel it difficult due to its lengthy vocabulary. Many languages use its linguistic attributes and vocabulary like Urdu, Bengali and Hindi etc. Due to its enormous vocabulary, people observation about learning Arabic language is not so good. Language learning requires patience and time that we had to give if we want to learn new language.
This language is really very difficult to learn and according to me one of the main reasons of its difficulty is its Genders. This language contains Masculine, Feminine and Neuter genders whereas commonly we find only two genders in languages i.e. Masculine and Feminine. It has also seven different verb conjugations. Another main reason of its difficulty is its unknown origin; it has no base language like Urdu contains many words that come from Persian and Arabic languages.
Its difficulty level is same as we saw in Chinese language, language learners need to memorize thousands of characters to learn Japanese. This language contains three different writing systems that create lot of confusion for learners. Due to these reasons people had not taken a step forward to learn it. If they took initiative then trust me they would find it easy to learn.
Last but not the least difficult language in learners point of view is Korean language. In Asian countries mostly people want to learn Korean because of their will to get a good job in Korea. But they denied learning this language when they listen from other people about its difficulty level. It is true that Korean language is difficult for those who belong to Asian countries but if you stick to it then you can learn Korean easily.
Nothing is impossible, the only thing that you need is the will power. How determinant you are? When you learn any language from the core of your heart and face all the hurdles with patience then no one can stop you to achieve your goal.
