    Linguistically speaking all languages are equal (As Chomsky) asserted.
    In the same way there is no "easy vocabulary" and "difficult vocabulary".
    If you know it, it'll sounds easy and vice versa....this is relativity.

    Hi friends,

    I'm ishu, this is my first post and i would love to share my perception on English learning. As u can read, my english writing is not so good but i am trying to express my view as my level best. Few month ago, when I started concentrating on this subject, I was not able to learn this language. I couldn't even write a single line in English. In order to my lack of learning , I got ride by this subject. However, I was motivated a lot by my friends not to quit and work hard. English never been my cup of coffee, and I was aware of that. But somehow, I put efforts in learning and now, as per my opinion, I can write . Although, sometime I do some sill mistakes, but I believe that person can never learn without doing mistakes. And that makes me believe that I can learn and nothing is impossible. So, as per my experiance , whatever i had, I can say that English is not that much tough for those who learn it as a game.

    I think it depends on the person who is learning the language if he finds it difficult to learn or not. As for me, I find it pretty average but sometimes it can also be difficult especially when I get confused.

    When we are talking about the ease of learning English, it’s not fair to think of only English. If we are talking about the ease of something, we need comparison. I saw that Chinese people can write the Latin letters perfectly . Once, I tried to write a birthday card in Chinese which was 5 lines, I swear it took half an hour J Both, writing and speaking in Chinese is extremely difficult. Arabic as well, they use their throat when they speak. Briefly, learning a foreign language itself is difficult, but English is the easy one

    Question Re: Is English an easy language to learn?

    Good Question.
    I presume it's easy to learn to be able to communicate (as it's my mother tongue I didn't have to "learn" it.) However, when it comes to the written language...well that seems to be a different story. Most rules have one or more exceptions. 40 years ago when I arrived here in Munich the saying was "Deutsche Sprache, schwere Sprache" At least, with German the rules apply! ... so I can't really agree with that! With English I seem to have spent a lot of my time during lessons over the past 25 years explaining "well.. yes that may be the rule but....... you just have to be flexible.
    However, if this is difficult for the learner to be... then, no, it is NOT an easy language to learn.
    For the "theoretical learner" perhaps, it's not so easy but the "practical learner" should be able to pick it up quite easily.
    Whatever the solution - it's keeping thousands of us 'in work' and I hope the rest of you are enjoying teaching it as much as I am.
    Keep smiling

    I can't say that English is an extremely easy language to learn, but I think it's not defenetly hard. It depends on the person, though. It depends on which is his maternal language, etc.
    I find English quite easy, but I don't know if it's because I started to learn it at a very young age or because I love it, but even though, I think it's very easy to learn the English verbs (mainly you just have to remember a structure and then ad "s" on the third person singular and learn the past and participal. And that's all). I wouldn't really like to learn the Spanish verbs.... sometime even I myself (and many Spanish people!!!) have problems to know how to conjugate (¿?) a verb... and I've never liked to do it in French

    I think you miss one more option.

    * very easy
    * easy
    * average
    * hard
    * very hard
    * fun

    But I voted for average, for we haven't got fun in the choices yet. Learning English I think depends on the learner on how you view the language and on how far you would want to go deeper with the language. The deeper you go the harder it gets. But to sum it all up, I would say it's fun learning English.
