Cost of Learning a Language

Curious about what it could cost to learn any of these languages?

As a guide, we calculated the number of hours and cost per hour required to learn each language. As you can see, the difficulty of a language doesn’t mean it costs more to learn. Even though it takes more hours to learn Malay than say, Portuguese, its cheap hourly cost makes it an economic choice.

For those of you who are really ambitious and don’t mind spending money, Chinese is one of the most difficult languages and is by far the most expensive to learn!

What is a Language ?

Language is the ability to acquire and use complex systems of communication, particularly the human ability to do so, and a language is any specific example of such a system. The scientific study of language is called linguistics. Questions concerning the philosophy of language, such as whether words can represent experience, have been debated since Gorgias and Plato in Ancient Greece. – WIKIPEDIA
