BTW, Swedish, Norwegian and Danish is more or less the same (mutual intelligibility). Dutch and Afrikaans too.

Finish and Hungarian are related languages (to each other), so they are both hard. They are not related to English at all, but Russian and Polish are. German is just as close as Scandinavian languages and dutch.

So where is German in that list? A language that roughly about a 100 million people in Europe speak. Pretty dumb not to list it I must say...
