Learning languages is a great way to meet new people, expand your knowledge on different cultures. They increase your chances of getting an employment, and last but not least increase your brain power.
Some lingos are easier, and some of them are more difficult to learn. The time it takes to learn a language depends on a number of factors: how close the new language is to your native language or other languages you know. How complex the language is. How many hours each week you devote to learning. The language learning resources available to you, and your motivation.
