    I as well choose Chinese Mandarin.

    As a requirement, we have to learn Spanish and French in the school I go to, and it's not too hard. And since Italian is close to both of those languages, it can't be too hard.

    I am currently trying to learn Japanese, as I think it is one of the most amazing languages in the world. It hasn't been too hard to learn Japanese.

    Polish? I'm part Polish, Dutch, Italian, Irish, and English. I don't know much Chinese, and that's why I'm going with what I voted for.

    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.

    Japanese isn't too terrible if you're dedicated. I know a few people who've successfully learnt it, including the characters.

    I actually judged from characters and Animes. LOL

    If you watch enough anime with english subtitles, you pick it up a lot quicker. A former friend of mine is something of a linguist, and she said it's one of the easiest languages she's learned, and a lot easier than German.

    It's better to watch it through completely raw (no subtitles) first before using subtitles. Try to figure out what's going on first and see if you're right (plus it helps you focus more on pronunciation and grammatical structure as well as slang, tone, and dialects.)

    Your bitterness, I will dispel

    I put English, cause teenagers in the UK cant even master it, and it is supposed to be their own language...

    But on a realistic non satircal choice, I would say Italian, it is all about the difference in tones in the voice etc.

    Like french an upward tone at the end of a sentence usually denotes a question.

    And out of all of them, I would say... Nipponjin ga mottomo kantan'na gengo o manabu kotodesu.

    Its been 10 years since I last said or typed that, hopefully I remember it well

    I thought Latin is the hardest language to learn as it on the verge of extinction. Though I wouldn't mind learning. The more you learn any language, the more your brain will become strong.
