I've actually heard that Polish is more difficult to learn. It all seems fairly subjective.



I'm not sure how Polish could be considered that hard for English speakers. The writing system is completely phonetic, there are a ton of cognates (more so than other Slavic languages I think because of its proximity to Western Europe), and the ways of phrasing things are definitely more similar than your average non-Indo-European language. OTOH, I've heard the other Slavic languages have simpler grammar with fewer exceptions.
