View from Ekeberg toward Grefsenin Oslo. Persian is easy in terms of grammar, most Western European languages have the advantage of common vocabulary and recognition. Norwegian happens to have both of these, and in this post I'm going to show why Norwegian is the easiest language for your average English speaker to learn.
Two notes before I begin: It's true that creole languages like Tok Pisin and Bislama are probably easier, but I've excluded them because not only are they still undergoing some changes as they switch from a language used by the majority as a second tongue to one used by more as a first tongue, and also no disrespect to them, I think they're great as languages because they are really only useful in a very limited part of the world.
The Bislama Wikipedia for example at present has only a total of pages, and I made a few of those.
For similar reasons I'm going to rule Scots out as well, in addition to the fact that there's still a debate as to whether it's a language or a dialect.
In my opinion a language is an independent language if 1 There are grammatical rules of right and wrong i. That's a different subject, however.

From the Norwegian I've studied as well I have an easier time reading Danish but can't understand it at all, and Swedish is easier to listen to. The three languages are so similar that they are often regarded as a dialect continuum, that is, if there happened to be a single country in place of the three we have today there would probably only exist regional dialects, not thought of as languages.
The total population of these languages is about 20 million.
Swedish is also an official language in Finland, though certainly not used by the majority. Lastly, Icelandic is also related to these three, but far more distantly, and it has a much more complex grammar, being more conservative in that it has maintained much the same form over the past nine centuries or so.
That's why Icelandic people can still read the old Norse sagas. See the page linguistic purism in Iceland for more information on how this works. Luckily Norwegian does help in understanding Icelandic, certainly more than other languages you could choose to learn except Faroese, but that's only spoken by 70, or soso Norwegian is a good language to start from if you have a personal interest in them.
Now to why Norwegian is so easy to learn: Being a Germanic language, you will notice a lot of cognates right at the start.Click on the session names below for more information, including location, speakers, and session descriptions.
