Hardest language to learn? (217)

I know this is subjective since a person that knows English would be able to learn Spanish more quickly than say, Chinese. But in light of that please discuss which language you think is the hardest to learn.

Spanish is difficult in the conjugation of verbs, Japanese has two main complications (writing and grammar), Chinese has a very complex phonetics system.

Well, that's all I think.

I'm not sure if anyone has said this already, but I've been told Thai is a difficult language because its tonal. So the pitch that you use to say something could easily change its meaning
I don't think I could live with that.
