Can I say this?
But however one thing is certain, learning a foreign language is a difficult thing.

There's no real need for "... is such a difficult thing" at the end. You can simply say "... is difficult."

Write 'However, one thing is certain: learning a foreign language is difficult'.

The colon could be replaced with a dash or an ellipsis.
