English is not my native language so help me translate these words:

2,4,6 is a X number; X = pair, or what :confused:
3,5,7 is a Y number; Y = unpair, i hate myself :mad:

I recently thought about learning Tagalog (the language of the Phillipines), but after just looking at some of the words and the millions of cases where you should use one over another to sound natural seems such an impossible task. Unless you are taught at school, learning a foreign language must be a really daunting task.

I couldn't imagine learning something like Mandarin. At least the Tagalog letters and pronounciations are similar to English. Yikes!

I believe Cantonese is the hardest language to learn followed by Finnish, English and Japanese.

I guess there is no absolute hardest language to learn. It depends on how many ( and which ) languages you already know.

Sure, it depends because English would be easier coming from French, or Cantonese coming from Japanese. But otherwise Cantonese, English, and Japanese are definetly up there in difficulty.

Learning Japanese is a to-do of mine. :-/
