which language should i choose?

hi, i'm interested in learning a new language, but i can't make up my mind. can you give me some advice?

i know some esperanto, and i want to learn: Italian, Spanish and French. Can you give me the pros and cons of each? Spanish and French is more commonly used, right?

Re: which language should i choose?

depends on the rationale behind picking up the language.if you're keen on travelling to a certain country,it'd be nice if you pick up the language.

if it's purely for fun,any language can do

personally i'd prefer french.heh.

I took French last time, but it was really, really tough. So if you want to take French, be prepared. I'm not sure about Spanish though.

Re: which language should i choose?

The difficulty of a language shouldn't deter you from learning it.

Italian sounds nice (imo) and it's easier than French and Spanish. Very phonetic, compared to French. If you know one of the Romance languages, learning the rest will be a cinch. The structure and grammar is very similar. Also, learning Esperanto may be a good idea too. It's supposed to be the easiest language in the world (or at least one of), and learning this will make learning other languages easier.

Ultimately, it's up to you.

Re: which language should i choose?

Hey sorry to hijack abit

Erm ..

Learning Spanish and French .. which is more 'valuable' in the sense that it will benefit the user more in terms of business/interviews/jobs etc .. I know it still depends on the nature of the job but in general which is more 'valuable' to the society ?

Like for e.g : Learning Malay will help alot as we're surrounded by most Malay-speaking countries ..

Once agian .. sry to TS for hijacking

Re: which language should i choose?

If usefulness is key, you might want to go for the more widely-spoken languages; see Wikipedia's list of languages by number of native speakers. The most widely spoken 'European' languages are Spanish (especially in Latin America) and German (Germany, Austria, Switzerland especially). French, not so much (only in France and certain former French colonies in Africa; and Quebec)... unless you want to work as a diplomat, since French is one of the 'official' languages in international relations.

I think Italian is easier than French (was dabbling in the former, and taking classes in the latter -- stopped for half a year now). Especially in terms of pronunciation and conjugation. But Italian is much less 'practical' -- might be fun to learn if you like listening to Puccini, Verdi etc. like I do. Otherwise, not really.
