Writing Mandarin is definitely the hardest thing to learn, because there is no relationship between what you hear and what you write. And yet, it is the most spoken language in the world.
Hindi is similar to Mandarin in terms of the difficulty in writing it and it can create problems even for native speakers. It derives from Sanskrit, called the mother of European languages, a forgotten language which slowly begins to wake up due to the linguists’ efforts.
