How hard is it to learn Hokkien?

Hi I am interested in learning Hokkien (specifically Taiwanese Hokkien).
I want to learn for several reasons:

My grandma and grandpa both only speak Hokkien (and I would like the ability to at least speak a little with them)

It would be kind of useful for my career (considering that a good number of people in Singapore and Malaysia also speak some variation of Hokkien)

Hokkien has some of the most colorful/descriptive expressions (yes, especially the expletives XD)

So my question is, how hard is Hokkien to learn? Is it any easier for someone who is also learning Mandarin?


Much thanks ^ ^ !
