What should I take: German, or Spanish?

What should I take: German, or Spanish? Topic: Travel company business plan
July 16, 2019 / By Edison
Question: My high school offers German and Spanish. I have to take one or the other this year. Please tell me which one you prefer? Another question: Which one can I learn along with my Japanese? I plan on going to Japan after I graduate, (my dream basically) and I don't want it to get mixed up as it will ruin my chances of ever living there. Help?

Both spanish and german are completely different from.japanese and should havr no effect on your japanese studies. The question, since you wish to live in Japan is one of usefullness. If business is your interest, take zgerman. Many Japanese companies have offices in the EU and could use a business translator at least. You English would give you an additional translation use. spanish, considering the spanish economy would be good for travel and tourism. Another thing to consider.

Cam Originally Answered: German or chinese or spanish as a second language?
I'd highly recommend you to learn Spanish.I can speak all three languages,with German as my native language,and I can tell you that Spanish is by far the easiest one.It's your second language to learn? Then you better don't start with Chinese.It's a REALLY difficult language,well,at least for me.Ha ha,even Latin is easier :) So I recommend Spanish since almost everyone in South America speaks it. It's not like you have the opportunity for studying Spanish at school without a reason :) If you think Mandarin will help you later on in life...They I'd say you should learn it later on.It's COMPLETELY different from English.At least there are a few words that are similar to English when it comes to Spanish :) German...well...as a native speaker I can tell you that it's a difficult language too,but not as difficult as Chinese.Yet it's more difficult that Spanish. But an advantage is that there are a lot of words in German that are the same in English.But on the other hand you may get some problems with the gender forms.As you probably know,instead of one article "the",we have three: Der (masculine), Die (feminine), Das (neutral). And,what is probably the biggest problem,you have to learn every word with the article.There is no trick or something. For example: Die Frau (the woman) is of course feminine Der Mann (the man) is masculine BUT: Die Banane (the banana),der Tee (the tea),das Mädchen (the girl).There is no trick to remember that.You have to learn every single article per word. But seriously - You you think it is THAT difficult? :) It isn't,to be honest.Maybe it's difficult when you start learning the language,but it'll get easier in time.Just be patient! German is good for later on in life too since it's the most spoken language in Europe. And to the German grammar - We have by far more tenses than you! But you have to learn tenses in every language,so don't worry.In Germany it doesn't really matter whether you use the simple past or the past perfect.In the majority of cases you use only the German version of the past perfect when you talk about something that happened in the past.But it actually doesn't matter.You can say when it comes to tenses,the Germans don't know which one's correct to use either :D Well,so I'd say: 1. Spanish 2. German 3. Chinese

Spanish is easy and learning your abc's my parents come from Spanish ancestors but we got a bit of Arab mixed in and now my parents speak Arabic but I asked to learn Spanish and I learned almost the whole language in less than a year and I'm 14 ^.^ I just know Spanish is a very easy language like I can't explain but it's very easy to learn the basics ^.^

Of course I prefer Spanish but that is beside the point.German is a very good language to know in N. and Central Europe.Spanish is used by very many people in very many countries.Both of them take very many years to learn to know well.I have no idea about Japanese except it would be best to learn one language very well.A little bit of 2 or 3 serves little purpose.

Mindy Originally Answered: Which language should I learn? (Excl. German/Spanish)?
Your friend is quite correct. Norwegian and Swedish are very similar. Some claim that were it not for the fact that each is a national language (but see below) they would be considered different dialects, not languages. Actually the languages of Scandinavia (that is, Danish, Swedish, Norwegian, Icelandic, and Faroese) are all North Germanic languages, so related, and perhaps a common parent language about 1000 years ago. (Finnish is quite different, and not even Indo-European.) Here is a major difference: Norwegian was influenced by Danish for 400 years, when Norway was a Danish province, and all culture, economy, education, church business was conducted in Danish. Thanks to a weakened Norway -- the Black Death decimated more than 50% of the country-- the written language in Norway pretty much disappeared. Swedish has had a continuous development. Swedish has a few more conservative (in linguistic terms) traits .. for example it has more indefinite noun plural forms (-ar, -er, -or) endings, while Norwegian (like Danish) has basically -er. Same for verb past tenses. Pronunciation is quite similar, although standard Norwegian shows more diphthongs. One other answer points out that Norwegian has two standard written forms: bokmål (more Dano-Norwegian) and nynorsk (based on the western dialects, less influenced by Danish). As to where or how to learn them, you can go to the database my Univ of Minnesota maintains about where you can study about 300 less commonly taught languages (all but French, German, Spanish, and English) in North America (see first link below). I am a Norwegian teacher and have my own website (2nd web site below) with a number of pointers to studying Norwegian on your own, including some old email lessons I sent out many years ago.
