I have really experienced the Thai language. It has hard script and romanization.

23 Hebrew

Mi po gam yode-a ivrit?
Who also knows here Hebrew in Hebrew
i'm Israeli

24 French

I am Canadian with Japanese origins, I really enjoyed for having learned French. Yes, it's a difficult language to start learning but once you speak a bit you always progress. I don't really know if I have any accent but when I've been in Paris anyone was kind with me, French people adore when you speak their own language and the do love accents. And now in Montreal I fell in love with a so pretty and charming French girl..

I know French is for sure not the hardest, but it's spelling and pronunciation is very demanding. I just want to say that it is the hardest romance language, and the the majority of the words you say have loads of silent letters and stuff. However French doesn't COMPARE to Arabic!

Actually, French is easier to learn than most of the languages here, since it's more related to English (both influenced by Latin) - ethanmeinster

This is so easy to learn! I recommend it as a second language. - micahisthebest

25 Portuguese

The verbs in Portuguese are actually harder (at least in my version, the European Portuguese) than any other Romance Language.

26 Telugu

Super and melodious language

27 Turkish
28 Lao
29 Khmer V 2 Comments
30 Swedish

I'm a native swedish speaker and there is one thing you have to know and that is "en" and "ett". These two means "a" or "an" in english. "A cat" means "en katt" but "a house" means "ett hus". They have no rules at all so you have to learn which one to use Word for Word.

31 Czech

This should be higher up on the list. Czech is definitely one of the hardest languages out there. There are so many ways to say one thing.

One of the hardest language in a world.

- Only language in the world with the letter ř.
- Lots of words with same meaning. For example: kluk, chlapec, mladý muž, this all means the same word - a boy. Or this: Dívka, děvče, holka - this all means a girl in Czech
- Czech: 1. Jan
2. Jana
3. Janu, Janovi
4. Jana
5. Jane!
6. Janu, Janovi
7. Janem

English: 1. John
2. John
3. John
4. John
5. John!
6. John
7. John

- Very complex grammar
- atd. (etc.)

32 Croatian

34 Slovak

I'm a native speaker so for everyone who has some weird reason to actually learn this language I warn you that there are just way too much grammatical rules that doesn't make any sense and some are completely unnecessary and few words have really funny conjugation that sound unnaturally even for native speakers and if you really want to learn this language despite everything then I wish you good luck and to end this post with something positive- if you can speak this language then you'll have no problem to learn other slavic languages

This is very hard language. Hard grammar, 7 cases.

35 Albanian

Never heard of It before, usually mainly unknown languages are harder, and according to the first page, it is easier than English.

36 Malayalam

How could you forget this language? It's the most hard language to learn in Asia. So of course it should come in top ten. Just look at the letters, they are so hard to learn

Rated as no 1in the list of hardest Asian languages to learn (which includes Arabic, Mandarin and what not). Rated as #43 in this list? Surely you must be joking, lol!

It's not about grammer where it's hard it's about expression

37 Estonian
38 Georgian
39 Welsh
40 Lithuanian

If Latvian is up there, Lithuanian should be on the same level if not higher. Both languages are from the Baltic Group and have many similarities toward each other. Born in Lithuania, and living in the United States for 13 years, I've had the oppurtunity to study many languages such as Spanish, portuguese, and German but can say that these languages do not come close to the precision and accuracy required to master a Baltic Langauge
