Oｈ ! My God Story
Japanese is the most difficult language in the world.
Foreigners say, "Japanese is the most difficult language."
I don't know about that because I'm a Japanese.
I met an Italian who was thirty five years old in New York.
He doesn't have a work and only studies languages.
He speaks some Japanese.
I've heard that he speaks seven languages.
Italian, English, Spanish, French, German, Latin, and Japanese.
I asked him.
Which language do you think is the most difficult?
Immediately he answered, "Japanese."
Actually he who can do so well in many languages
has been studying Japanese
for eight years.
He said, "It takes time to master Japanese."

But he said, "That's not the only difficulty in Japanese."
Anyway, Japanese is difficult.
