Language Difficulty for English (US) speakers: 4.63 / 10

Many people rate language difficulty by the way a language is written. At Glossika, we eliminate writing system difficulty and deliver fluency in any language regardless how it's written. To become fluent, you must manipulate all the pieces of a sentence and assemble them in a coherent stream of sound. To accomplish this, we unlock the grammatical patterns through audio training and transcriptions of that sound stream to the point that you get comfortable and familiar with those patterns.
