    How easy is it to learn your language? How about other languages you have tried? I learnt German which is easy as it's close to English, un petite peu Francais for travelling and Japanese which I also taught & is a hard language. Louise Smith

    I speak Iban with my parents but learnt to use English and Malay officially. Iban and Malay have some similarities but intonation can be very different.

    #13 I would have thought English to Afrikaans would be ok. But as @Ian Weinberg stated maybe it 's German that's more similar. And Dutch? Or maybe SA English speakers have a mental block ?

    #15 Compassion from French is interesting - maybe you tried hard to speak French to native speakers.
    Most people appreciate it if you try to speak in their native language.

    #13 I found it quite easy to speak Afrikaans. Having had German speaking grandparents, I think it created a 'feel' for the Afrikaans context and expression.

    @Louise Smith This is interesting Louise. I am Afrikaans speaking and English speakers in South Africa say it is quite difficult to learn. The Afrikaans grammar structure differs from English and spoken Afrikaans is not easy on the English tongue. Very nice post - I wonder what @Ian Weinberg would say - he is first language English yet can "praat die taal".

    #4 Actually those African (?) languages are very difficult. I think this is not an exhaustive list. And Maybe a bit Eurocentric.
    I thought this was both speaking and writing. Asian and Arabic languages are definitely harder to read and write.

    But in that list there are no languages ​​like "Taa" (! Xóõ) or "Xhosa", I think these are incredibly difficult! 😂😂😂

    Although I think it would not apply, because its difficulty lies in the verbal, since the image refers to reading.🤔😮

    Let me show you unknown Donostia as well. We'll play, sing and have fun while learning Spanish and a little Euskera (Basque lenguage).

    First lesson for free. Personal and individual. Lot of humour. You'll learn also slang.

    #2 This is another thing, can you write or speak the language, can you do both? Both are different skill sets. I would say if you are looking to have as big an audience as possible, if you have a translated copy of something really good submit it. You know things that are unpopular in one country become popular in another. You never know what your market is looking for. For me i can understand Thai, but i sure as hell can't write in it or read it, Spanish.i can read and speak enough. I want to learn french, but yeah if you can write in other languages, because every language is a different audience.

    Interesting views never really thought about this in those terms I speak English (on good days) French (on bad days) and get by in Spanish, 225 millions roughly live and work in a country different from their country of birth for most of us it does imply that we have to function in a different language. So I guess adaptation is key but you are left with no choice you learn fast :-)

    The song I'm sharing, "Almendra" has special sentimental value because when I was a little girl, I used to dance with my father to this song. You know: like many 3-4 year-old girls do, putting their feet on their father's feet while they danced around. This always brings a smile. I hope you enjoy. Close
