Duolingo Daily Topic: Speaking Task (Describe a language other than English that you would like to learn)

Q. Describe a language other than English that you would like to learn. You should say what the language is where it is spoken, what you think is difficult, and what would be easy about learning the language.

Ans. The language that I would like to learn is Japanese. It is a beautiful yet complex language that originated in Japan, an island nation in East Asia that is known for its rich history and culture.


Japanese language is spoken by more than 125 million people, primarily in Japan, but also by Japanese communities around the world. It’s the ninth most spoken language in the world and the third largest language on the internet. One of the challenges I anticipate while learning Japanese is mastering three different writing systems: Hiragana, Katakana, and Kanji. Hiragana and Katakana are phonetic alphabets, while Kanji is a system of symbolic characters. Each system has a unique set of characters to learn which can seem like a daunting task for beginners.

Another difficulty that I think I would most likely face is the politeness levels in Japanese. The language has different forms of speech to show varying degrees of respect towards listeners, based on their social status, and relationship with the speaker. Despite these challenges, there are some aspects of learning Japanese that I think would be easier. For instance, Japanese pronunciation is relatively straightforward with a limited number of sounds with each syllable being pronounced clearly and consistently. Moreover, the Japanese language is quite logical. The sentence structure is flexible, and there are no articles, no plurals, no gender, and no verb conjugation for person or number.

Learning Japanese would not only allow me to communicate with a new group of people but also provide a deeper understanding of a fascinating culture. It’s a journey I look forward to embarking on.
