Nihongo wa sugoku muzukashii keredo, omoshiroi. 日本語はとても難しいけれど、面白い。


Explanation:
To sum all of the above up, it comes down to the following sentence, right, guys?
Nihongo wa = Japanese is
sugoku= very/ so/ tremendously
muzukashii= difficult
keredo= but
omoshiroi= interesting
NOW, you can also use
totemo (very/so) instead of sugoku.
