Don't get into a language looking at it as if it's hard or easy. Things like learning languages aren't difficult or easy, they just take lots of practice and trial and error. If you view it that way, I think you'll be more likely to stick with it.

It depends on your native language. If your native language it English, it is said to be harder for you than Spanish, French, Italian or Portuguese. English is my mother tongue, and I find German quite difficult. But if you are interested in learning it, still do it! Just because it may be harder, don't let it hinder you from learning it. I love German. :)

I like german too. I found it easier when learning Spanish to learn Italian at the same time!

How could a Germanic language be harder than a Romantic language for a Germanic speaker?

I'm finding German to be a lot harder than Spanish. However, as clarabouch said, that's no reason not to learn it. It may be more of a challenge, and take longer, but it should all fall into place in time.

More difficult than either Spanish, French or English. That's for sure in my opinion.

I'm trying to learn German too and I found using Duolingo and Lang 8 has been really useful. I guess it depends on how much you practice. Writing in German has really helped my grasp some grammar rules.

Yah! I am preparing to learn it so maybe someday I can go visit a German speaking country!
