French and Spanish are easy? Maybe at the most "basic" form.

It's like people saying English is easy. Or that they speak "basic" English.

French is probably the easiest to learn which proves how bad I am at learning languages. 10 years doing French lessons and all I can remember to say is hello, how are you

You're so right. You're not the only one who struggles to get formal language lessons to stick. What one change could be made to make formal lessons more effective, do you think?

kfe202 I think they could make it more fun. I remember when I was about 7 my teacher was having a hard time teaching me French so she decided to try to teach it to me in a song. And I did learn the whole song and for a couple of years knew quite a few phrases in French

Spanish or Italian I reckon. For me (I'm French) English is the easiest to learn😁

That's such an interesting perspective. What is it that makes English easier for you than other languages, do you think?

kfe202 I did German and English at school and English was a lot easier. I tried to learn Italian on my own, and found it harder than English.

G0501 You're so impressive. Good for you learning all of those languages. What's your number one tip for people who want to master a second language?

There really isn't an "easy" language, the best you can go for is grow up with a language and it sticks with you.

I grew up watching English, Spanish and Portuguese and from that I've never forgotten any. However, I once knew French and still somewhat do, though since I had stopped using I eventually lost it.

German, Japanese and Cantonese are some of the hardest languages to learn and even more to be fluent at.

If I had to choose a language to learn it would be either Spanish or Chinese. Spanish would be easier I would think over Chinese.

You're so right. Spanish would be easier than Chinese just by dint of being written in the same alphabet as English. What is that calls out to you about these two languages?

I'm currently learning Spanish and know a little French. My hubby learnt German and is struggling to separate the German words with Spanish and I do the same with French...would hate to try and learn a tougher language πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

Sorry to hear that your husband is struggling with language learning. What one thing could you try that might make it easier for him to separate out the different languages?

I found German really easy. We had to learn French in school, but got to try German for one lesson and covered a lot of the basics (counting, introducing myself, saying where I lived). It took us at least a term to cover all that when we did French! I also found Japanese easy, but I know mandarin and Cantonese, so thats probably why

At my school it was compulsory to take 2 lanuages we all had to do French then had to choose between either German or Spanish.I choose German & found it so easy, so much so that my language teacher tried very hard to push me into doing lanuages at advanced level but I just wasn't interested. I kinda wish I had now. I can still remember some basics but have forgotten vast majority of it. I remember even less of French.
