I find it weird that Bahdinis say Sorani is easy but their dlacet is so hard to learn lolllll

yea.. well sorani might be a little bit harder but did you know that all the kurds from all the different parts of kurdistan can actually understand sorani!! i mean i for one, if a bahdini person talk to me i might not understan a word because sorani is different to bahdini but its widely used recognised. . .. :)
