German forces the learner to understand how nouns/pronouns are being used in a sentence. Depending upon what you consider to be your 'primary' language, the structure of German can be intimidating or not complex at all.

The number of cases differs among languages: German and Icelandic have four; Turkish, Latin and Russian each have at least six; Armenian, Czech, Polish, Serbian, Croatian, Ukrainian, and Lithuanian have seven; Sanskrit has eight; Estonian and Finnish have fifteen, and Hungarian has eighteen.

In addition, many slavic languages omit 'articles.' This becomes a problem for those of us accustomed to using specific words for "the, a/an, this/that". The reverse is also true. Speakers of slavic languages find it perfectly natural to say, "Is good idea!" or "What is? when speaking English. It sounds "right" to them

I'm not a native English speaker either, and my point stays the same. Languages shouldn't be compared by their difficulty (not even possible), they are simply different.

Also yes, at first every language will feel harder than your native language, that's because your native language is your Native language :-)

Nothing is wrong with the language; just accept that it is what it is.

In my opinion, the language is very well-structured. :-) (But OK, I may be a little biased ...).

What exactly is worrying you right now?
