    Persian (Dari, Farsi, Tajik) or Russian are the easiest in that list, as they both are only Category II Languages (significant linguistic and/or cultural differences from English). Vietnamese is somewhat more difficult than other Category II Languages. Arabic, Cantonese, Japanese, Korean and Mandarin Chinese are Category III Languages (quite difficult for native English speakers).
