Genders in languages are an absolute scourge to decline (I'd really like to 'decline' them!) German was very hard for me to get to grips with. "Der die das den dem deren dessen ein eine einen einer einem" blah blah blooming blah!
Mandarin and Cantonese are blissful, having no definitive articles at all. One merely says 'Horse black' or 'Cat on sofa' etc.
