I have too many jobs this week

I am complaining, but not complaining.

I talked to a man on the bus today about how he'd like to study a foreign language. He said he'd studied a bit of Spanish, "because it is useful," but that he'd gotten bored after a while, and because "Spanish is too hard." He told me that he had signed up for a Chinese class at MiraCosta Community College, and figured that Chinese would be a lot easier than Spanish. He was so enthusiastic about it all that I didn't have the heart to tell him I disagreed.

why did he possibly think that chinese would be easier than spanish?

tell him to take swedish. you don't even have to conjugate verbs, and the grammar structure is the same.
