    There are no citations to prove any of this. What is the control group, what was the sample size, what was the educational level, what was the exposure time? It’s all meaningless. Also, this is assumed to be for English speakers and cannot be proclaimed as a universal.

      This research is based on references that you can see at the end of the infographic :) This is for English native speakers I forgot to mention that sorry.

      Anyways thanks for your criticism, I’m always looking for positive and negative feedback!

  2. I teach French and Spanish. For my native English speakers, I agree: Spanish pronunciation seems to be easier than French, as is spelling since it’s phonetic. Spanish grammar is harder than French.
    French is easier to read and understand because there are so many cognates (and the grammar structure is easier).
    When I was in Italy, it wasn’t too hard to understand the Italians, as long as I could see their hands when they spoke. ;)

  3. don’t think I agree with it all, looks like it might be bias towards learning European languages perhaps for people living in neighbouring countries with easy access and thus exposure! Personally I don’t think French is that easy to read, yet due to my personal experience and exposure I actually find Chinese easier!

  4. We can’t overgeneralise because the learning of any language depends on so many factors such as age and motivation ( intrinsic or extrinsic ) . Improvement of any language skill is the result of practice
