love that site, though it should be pointed out that english is recognised as the most complicated language, mainly because we have latin roots, with french and german, and greek and sandscrit "tweaks" meaning that english is hte most bastard of all languages.

the hardes to read is Arabic (learn to read)

Um, recognised by who? Each language has its own complexities. I have worked with Bahasa Indonesia and that can be quite hard to translate due the lack of use of terms or suffixes or word forms to help indicate things like number, tense, definiteness. These things can be indicated but frequently they are all regarded as being contextually obvious, so writers and speakers omit them.

And what is hard about Arabic? It has an small alphabet like English, versus the writing systems used in Japan or China which are much larger.

ps. Minecraft's enchantments use the Standard_Galactic_Alphabet

it's apparently hardest to learn,
the issue is the English phonemes which lots of languages do not have, along with syntax etc. if your a native english speaker of course there are other languages which are far harder as explaiend in wiki
