List Criteria: List of the easiest foreign languages to learn.

What is the easiest language to learn? It really depends on your native tongue. What might be fairly easy for a native English speaker might be far more challenging to someone who speaks Arabic as a native language, for instance. That being said, there are several languages that are easier than others to pick up, for pretty much everyone.

This list includes a wide variety of different languages, so be sure to vote for those you think are the easiest/quickest to learn, and vote down any languages you've struggled to pick up. And, if you don't see a language you find easy to learn listed, by all means, add it.

Learning a new language can be an invaluable skill. Being bilingual can help you with your studies, and it could even help you land that dream job. In terms of the easiest languages to learn for native English speakers, the so-called "romance languages" aren't overly difficult to pick up with some study. The romance languages include Spanish, French, Italian, Portuguese and Romanian. These are among the most commonly spoken, best languages to learn, particularly Spanish and Portuguese.

Other major languages which might be fairly easy to learn include German, Dutch and Swedish. Languages like Russian might be slightly more difficult, not just to learn, but to speak. Some languages which might be even more difficult to learn include Arabic, Japanese, Chines (which has several variations), Vietnamese and Indonesian. Again, though, it all depends on your native tongue.

Learning a new language is always challenging, but it's extremely rewarding, too. Were you able to learn a new language fairly easily? If so, please vote and feel free to share your experiences in the comments.
