I know someone that speaks that language but it seems really hard.

I would like to learn it, like any other language (besides Spanish)

Translation in Tagalog:

Mayroon akong kakilala na makakausap mo sa ganoong lengwahe pero mukhang mahirap.

Gusto kong matutunan, gaya lang nang ibang lenguwahe (maliban sa Espanol)

Katorse anyos lang ako. (I am only 14 years old]

Bata pa ako. [I am still young]
