One of the most common issues that comes up in language learning is whether or not certain languages are easier than others.
In this episode, I respond to this with an anecdote from my time in Korea going between Korean, Irish and French.
- After spending time learning Korean in Korea, French felt like a walk in the park.
- Difficulty first and foremost is relative – it depends on your first language and experience.
- The easy/difficult dichotomy only exists in the very beginning but goes away after you’ve adjusted to the changes.
- Expect some adjustment time but things will get much easier as time goes on.
