How long does it take to learn a foreign language?
The amount of time it takes to learn a foreign language depends on the language chosen. For native English-speakers some languages like Spanish, French, and Italian are easier to learn than other languages like Arabic, Chinese, and Japanese. You will note the easier languages are the ones that have an alphabet more closely resembling your native language. Conversely, the harder languages are the ones with an alphabet most different from your native language.
