i think Cantonese is more difficult to learn than Mandarin especially for beginners.

I wouldn't know seeing as I can only speak English. However I did have to try and learn French and German at school. IMO French was harder, as German seemed a lot more simple.

The only thing which throws me of other languages like German and French is that they have genders.

Only 10 options available...

Cannot make more, sorry folks.

Except Hebrew I think Nordic languages are also bit of hard.

A lot of people say that English is in fact the hardest language to learn out of all. Well, I can't exactly point out to you what the hardest language is since I haven't attempted to learn every one of them. But so far, I think that english is the hardest.

I find that hard to believe. A source would be nice.

V.I.P.
Welsh is not on here, this disappoints me.

I'm not from a welsh-speaking family, but I've learned alone bits and pieces, and it's difficult. A lot of letters make different sounds in welsh, and there's lots of long words. As an example, here is the welsh name for my town: Yr Wyddgrug.

I cannot even figure out a way to write it phonetically, and don't get me started on pronouncing Llangollen...

(Fact: The welsh alphabet lacks an "x". Here, it's a Tacsi if the firm is owned by a welshman)

Hebrew is easy, maybe I say that because it's close to Arabic, I heard Arabic is hard to learn for foreign people, I'd go with Japanese from that list.
