I am currently learning Japanese in self study, but I find the progress to be extremely slow without a tutor. I did it for a half year now, and would barely be able to hold a conversation.

Japanese as self-study (kanas). Russian in the university among the other courses. Then I'll later on continue my Chinese studies since at the moment I only know the basics. In addition I know Finnish, Swedish, English and the basics of Spanish.

Also next summer I'll start Korean as self-study since I am going to an university exchange in Seoul next fall.  ;D

It's fun to learn new languages and especially new writing systems. Imagine being able to converse in Chinese, Russian, Japanese and Korean.  :o I'd hire myself.  ;D

I taught myself Dutch and English and Ukrainian and Swedish (a bit)

Except Swedish they were all rather easy.

I've always heard that Dutch is one of the hardest languages to learn as a foreigner to the strange grammar and unregular verbs

Anybody here fluent in Danish or Armenian, I'd love to have a chat with you. I want to learn aviation-related terms! :)

I think most languages have something that makes them hard to learn for foreigners. Japanese for example has extremely simple grammar, but it becomes difficult by the fact that there are like 10 different ways to say something and you got to assess which is the right one taking into account how you stand to the person you are conversing with etc.

Yes and no.

The grammar is very weird but once you got it, it all makes sense. Secondly, because it's so hard to learn for foreigners many people have adopted an 'anything goes' sort of approach.

That is at least my experience in the three years I've lived there.
