  汉语真的是世界上最难学的语言吗

  以下是Quora读者的评论:

  Shh, don’t tell anyone but…as a linguist, I can tell you that for English speakers, at least, Chinese is not considered the most difficult language to learn. In fact, I don’t believe it has ever been considered the most difficult language to learn.

  作为一个语言学家,我可以告诉你,至少对说英语的人来说,汉语不是最难学的语言。事实上,我并不认为汉语是最难学的语言。

  The reason I’d love for this to stay a secret is because, as an American who speaks Mandarin, it definitely serves me well that people continue to be impressed with my language abilities!

  我想要保守这个秘密的原因是,作为一个说汉语的美国人,我的语言能力给人们留下了深刻的印象,这对我很有帮助!

  Mandarin certainly has some difficult features (tones, an ideographic writing system), however it also has many features that are comparatively very easy (very straightforward and simple grammar without any conjugations necessary, syntax that is very close to English, and relatively straightforward phonemes that are easily pronounced by English speakers.). Also, there is an abundance of resources for learning Chinese, as it is an official language used in economically powerful countries.

  汉语肯定存在一些难点(音调,表意文字系统),然而它也有许多功能相对非常简单(非常明白、简单的语法,没有动词词形变化,句法与英语非常接近,对说英语的人而言,音素发音比较容易)。此外,学习汉语的资源也很丰富,因为汉语是经济强国的官方语言。

  There are many languages that are considered much harder for English speakers to learn: Korean, for example, due to its very complex grammar and phonological system. Navajo for the same reasons (with the added difficulty that there are very few resources for Navajo).

  对于说英语的人来说,有很多语言更难学:比如韩语,因为它的语法和语音系统非常复杂。纳瓦霍语也一样(还有一个困难就是纳瓦霍语的资源很少)。
