    What Language would you choose?

    Okay everybody that's ever learned a second language or those who are also having/had this problem: I need to learn a language to meet my college's degree requirements. However, I suck at picking up new languages. I have already tried one semester's worth of Japanese and I find it hard and hear that it only becomes more complicated. (Yes, as all languages do, I'm aware of this. ) I am currently considering changing to a different language so from the list below, which one would you choose to learn and why? Ex. sentence structure, word usage, etc.

    French
    German
    Italian
    Latin
    Spanish
    Chinese
    Russian
    Swahili
    American Sign Language

    What is you former language.........

    If this is english, then choose german. cause the english is near the german in most point.
    If this is french, Choose spanish. same here.

    Or You can choose a language that you are really motivated to learn. When you put your spirit to something, the learning come more easy....
    Coming soon.........

    My history in foreign languages...

    Two years of Spanish in high school. Then I went two and a half years with nothing before deciding out of nowhere to try Japanese. I ended up with a B in the course, but it was hardly enjoyable. I would like maybe later in life to advance my knowledge but for right now nothing. Then this past summer I went back to Spanish where I felt more at home. I honestly think I enjoy Spanish more because its easier, I'm starting to feel like I know the language pretty well now. I'm not intimidated to go to Spanish speaking countries anymore, I hope maybe one day I will.

    I would choose either spanish or chinese as well, spanish is kinda easier and rolls right off ur tongue if u know english very well, it does for me at least, for chinese....i not so sure but i think it would be the most interesting next to japanese....makes me wonder why u choose japanese in the first place.....

    Try an asian language, i speak vietnamese sorta because i am viet and i know just a wee bit about it from my parents, not so fluent thought

    Well, if you had trouble with Japanese, then Chinese won't be any easier...Spanish, Frech and Italian have a lot of similatiries(they're all dirivitaves of latin) and the easiest among those is probably Spanish. But also take into consideration which culture you're interested in learning, since you'll be doing a lot of that...i took French for 4 years in high school and I had a blast
