Chinese is not more difficult than other languages.  People just have the impression that it's difficult because all the hard part smacks you in the face from the very beginning.  But after that it gets progressively easier and more simplistic.  Most languages are the opposite.  It starts out easier and gets progressively more difficult.  Because of this, people think it's exceedingly difficult, but rather, it's just a matter of an inverted learning curve.  See here for further explanation.
