    Chinese is actually pretty easy to pronounce once you master the different tones.

    BTW CHG-type populations are likely to have spoken languages directly ancestral to North Caucasian ones, so if you have a large amount of steppe ancestry it's quite likely that a fair chunk of your ancestors spoke languages not too dissimilar from these.

    In fact, they are not even the Europeans in strict sense, meaning European as in bearing the responsibility and understanding of European interests. Poland has always been an subordinate country, on one side sucking German dick, on the other side -- Russian one, some kind of "novice" europeans, who are full of inferiority complexes, hysteria and obsessity neuroses. This is also true for all Baltic countries

    Interesting. Had I heard this song I would have guessed Kurdish, Armenian or some Iranian language in Iran or Afghanistan. It's easy to forget about the Caucasian language, since they are small and unfamous. The only Caucasian language that has it's own country are Georgians (and it's a plus they are not muslims).

    I'd say the hardest Semitic language to pronounce is either Mehri or Soqotri.

    What you say is true about the relative obscurity of the North Caucasian languages. However if you spend time in Israel and work in Law enforcement you will hear Adygei spoken among themselves. They all speak Hebrew, sometimes Arabic and English, but unlike in Jordan and, I believe Turkey, the Israeli Adygei (Circassians) descendants of the Sultan Abdul Hamid migration have preserved their language. 1st clip shows Adygei well integrated but second clip shows language preservation:
