Is it easy to learn French?
no, It is not especially if you are learning to write an exam and that too within a short time. It's about the most challenging endeavor I had to undertake.
I had to do it because I had no alternative. I had maxed out my English score and had no hope of pnp.
But was it worth it? Yes I got to increase my score to 470(still pushing to increase further with spouse eca and spouse's retaking of ielts).
And I am bilingual now. I can converse comfortably (though not like a native) in french
