It’s never easy to learn a new language, as many people who take up jobs overseas soon find out. It may also be quite a fun experience for some, especially if the language they’re currently learning has many similarities to their native language. This isn’t the case with the languages on our list, however, as these languages are universally considered to be among the hardest to pick up for anyone trying to learn them.
In fact, it is even the most experienced of translators who usually have difficulties learning these languages and we’ll soon find out why that is. Long story short, here are the ten hardest languages to learn for foreigners.
Norwegian is the official language in Norway and nowhere else, which is why it is spoken primarily in Norway. There is no standard dialect of the language, interestingly enough, which is why the language is so hard to pick up by anyone outside of Norway. At the same time, most Norwegians speak their own dialect depending on their geographic location, yet another reason why it is so hard to learn. Norwegian is also a North Germanic language, just like Danish.
