Is Polish the most difficult language?

How long does it take an average person to learn that language? How is fluent in a language at a professional level.

You mean - to say " harder" to learn languages ?

Hi Stef. Good question. I really think it would depend on the individual, their capacacity for learning languages, the motivation behind learning the language, and the time and resources available to them to apply to the learning process.

I think , that it's the most difficult language on the world , 'cause I am a native and when I study Polish ( I am native ) The grammar rules are very complicated.

Thank you Lagu#. I believe you and you have my upmost respect. I, as a native English speaker, personally ( I'm not speaking for anyone else) feel I will only be able to speak/ write as a very young child in Polish. I don't have the time or capacity in my brain to understand all the rules. I've sadly but honestly accepted this fact for myself. I love what I have learned so far, feel that it has been a worthwhile endeavor and I am interested in and astounded by what I hear when people speak Polish. I'm sure if I was living in Poland I would have to grasp a deeper understanding of the grammar rules just for survival -but that won't be happening. (I guess it could if for some reason we got "land locked" while on vacation in Poland...) Anyway, from what I've read in these discussions and seen in videos from the Internet, Polish and Hungarian, though I won't attempt to compare them with each other or other languages, are both considered extremely difficult to learn. My hats off to anyone who becomes fluent. Even more so to those who understand the grammar rules.

"Polish [...] has a ❤❤❤❤ ton of consonants" - try Ubykh or Taa.

Not the most difficult but Polish is in the 3rd category, so quite hard to learn !

After 2 intensive months on Duolingo, I can say that it's a crazy language with some nice exceptions (such as mezczyzna for example).
