You're just mad because you aren't built like a man, instead you are devoid of all testosterone and built like a little twig.

the only good thing about english is that we dont assign gender to inanimate objects.
the sheer number of words is what makes it so difficult to learn another language, with english as your first. its EASIER to think in english. theres more vocabulary to borrow from when you have something to say. im USED to that.
not having that much material at my disposal makes it harder for me to use a more simplistic language. (and yes, gender assignment is hardest in german, and its what makes german so hard. your entire sentence rides on using the proper gender for certain words. german IS hard. it was just made harder for me because my first language was english.)
english did kind of take the role of international language, but only because its such a broad language. its easy to think in english, and express yourself in english. its just hard to learn as a second language, and as a first language, it makes learning others difficult.
im simply recalling my personal experience with learning german, all the while wishing there was a word or phrase for whatever english i was trying to translate in my head.
german is hard in all the places english is easy, and vice versa.
(oh, and theres some fucking latin in the middle of the english language. how the fuck did that happen? we didnt have a simple enough phrase for "and the other way around," so we borrowed it from latin to widen our vocabulary further. it just creates more within the language to keep up with, in the interest of keeping things simple and expressive.)

danish is actually my next language in line. after that, im going to take up japanese.
i can see why german would be difficult for you to learn, as the languages are similar in many aspects, but completely different in others.
english is actually so complex, that its extremely difficult to find the words im looking for in german, because they exist in english, but not german. im used to having so many words at my disposal that when im given so few, i dont know how to properly express what im trying to say. theres just not enough german equivalents to english words and sayings. fluency has made it easier to simply think in german and not worry about equivalencies.
esperanto was far easier, because it was designed to be easy to learn from any perspective. you oughtta give it a try. a solid month of study and youd be fluent.

That's what makes English easy and German hard...

But no, I am not referring to the fact that they are alike, I am referring to the German/Latin etc. use of morphology. You know, akusativ, nominativ, genitiv and all that bullshit. That's what I find hard about German and easy about English; English is easy gramatically and has a lot of words to explain a lot of things. I have periods where I can only express myself and think in English simply because I am better at expressing myself in English.

On an unrelated note, English is a wonderful language because it is not only considered an international language; it IS an international language. It is based around the Germanic languages (modern-day Scandinavia) with some degree of influence by the Irish, Scottish and Druidish (if that's even a word, lol). Later on it acquired a significant amount of words from French and Latin due to invasions, and even today, it is probably the language in the world with the highest amount of words extracted from other languages, like Greek and Indian. I think it makes English the most culturally holistic language in the world, which I think is absolutely great.
