I often get the question, which language should I learn first?
My answer is: Start with the easiest one!
Learning a new language is difficult, and it’s the first time you embark on this mission, you want to start with an “easy” one to gain some confidence in the process!
So I found this study showing the easiest languages to learn, taken from research from the Foreign Service Institute (FSI).
They have a group of language which they concluded were the easiest to learn because they are closely related to English and can be learned in 24 weeks!
And YES! Spanish was on that list!
Spanish is a great language to start with! It’s the second most commonly spoken language in the world (after Chinese and ahead of English) and it’s also one of the easiest ones to learn for English speakers!
Here are the full results of the study:
