a rough start

English - England

I'm talking about the challenges the French language has to face against English and talking about the internet I want to say: "It was a rough start for the french language..."

Would that be:

"C'était un début brutal pour la langue française..."

or does that not make sense?

Thanks for you help

    In order for it to sound very french, I'd suggest "La langue française a connu des débuts difficiles...".
