I’m sure we would all love to download a language into our brain like Neo in The Matrix! But unfortunately, it’s not as simple as that. The question "How long does it take to learn a language?" can vary from person to person and there are several factors to consider. In this blog, we'll explore those factors and provide some insights to help you set realistic expectations.
The complexity of a language plays a significant role in determining the time required to learn it. Languages with similar grammar structures and vocabulary to your native tongue might be easier to grasp. For example, an English speaker learning Dutch or German may find certain similarities that accelerate the learning process. On the other hand, a language with a completely different linguistic structure, such as Mandarin or Arabic, may require more time and effort.
