Want To Learn A New Language? Give Yourself About 480 Hours

According to this article/study it takes the average English speaking person 480 hours to learn to speak fluently the following ‘easy to learn’ languages.

Group 1: French, German, Indonesian, Italian, Portuguese, Romanian, Spanish, Swahili

For the more difficult to learn languages they say it will take 720 hours.  They are:

Group 2: Bulgarian, Burmese, Greek, Hindi, Persian, Urdu

Group 3: Amharic, Cambodian, Czech, Finnish, Hebrew, Hungarian, Lao, Polish, Russian, Serbo-Croatian, Thai, Turkish, Vietnamese

Group 4: Arabic, Chinese, Japanese, Korean

I admire people who come from a non English background and learn English which is said to be one of the hardest languages to learn.  I took 10 years of public school French and…..Je ne sais pas fromage.    🙂
