Hardest Languages to Learn

Here is an interesting infographic put out by the U.S. Foreign Service Institute which splits up languages by the effort needed to learn them. Those represented are split in “easy”, “medium”, and “hard”. I am a little annoyed that the 7 languages I have bothered to learn are all considered “easy”! And those that I still hope to learn one day (Thai, Mandarin, Hebrew, Arabic) are all ranked “medium” or “hard”! Argh! I guess I should have gone about this language thing the other way around. My adult brain isn’t going to like me for trying to cram new language knowledge in and my tongue will curse me for making it twist and turn in new configurations. But, it’s not impossible!
