Hey, I was wondering what you people think is the hardest language to learn
(of the languages you know).  I've heard Hungarian is hard (of course I don't
know any one who speaks Hungarian)?  Of course I would be wondering from an
English point of view.

Also- are Chinese languages hard?  Are there many similarities between
Cantonese and Mandarin?  And some-what on the same topic, are East Indian
languages hard or similar.  I know some Indians and they all know about four
Indian languages  (Bengali, Panjabi, Telugu and Hindi I think) who say they
are different, but when I hear them the words sound similar to me- of course
I live in a town of 2,000 with about 80 people of color, so what can I say?
