It is not hard to study colloquially, since the word order of modern Chinese is based on English. But as for written Chinese, it takes a bunch of time and great effort. The Chinese character system (Hanzi) is known for its difficulty to have mastery command over.
Chinese is a language with a high degree of freedom. Thus, if your goal is to just open your mouth and converse with Chinese people, it will take no more than 1 year. However, if you want to read literatures in Chinese, it will take definitely more time.
The Foreign Service Institute (FSI) has created a list to show the approximate time you need to learn a specific language as an English speaker (similar for native Swedish, Dutch, Spanish, French and German speakers). After this particular study time you will reach “Speaking 3: General Professional Proficiency in Speaking (S3)” and “Reading 3: General Professional Proficiency in Reading (R3)”
While almost all of the well-known western European languages (Swedish, Dutch, Spanish and French) and are listed in Category I (The easiest to learn, 23-24weeks or 575-600 hours), Chinese is listed in Category V (the most difficult to learn, 88 weeks or2200 hours), along with Japanese, Korean and Arabic.
