French isn't that hard to learn though. Especially if you know Spanish. The only trouble comes when speaking and understanding what people are saying.

My french teacher from Quebec was always easier to understand than my french teacher from Algeria so I don't know if that's because Quebec french is easier to understand verbally or just that my french Algerian teacher spoke very little English. The lack of consonant sounds made it hard to understand for someone who didn't start learning french until age 12 and is still at a 9th grade french reading level after receiving a bachelor's degree. Listening to french has always been my low scoring field in testing. Too many words just sound like a bunch of running vowels together that sound like too many other words.
