It is not all about English, but
Hello, I am a college student from China and Chinese is my mother tougne. Here I 'd like you to tell me your apinions or experience in studying languages like French, German, or even japanese.
One of my accqaitances told me not to study English and French together.
Don't study them altogether, and you'll be mixed up otherwise, as she said. I think there is something in what she said; there are too many resemblances between them.
What do you think? And do you find which language is the hardest/ easiest?
I studied French and German at school and learned Portuguese when I was living there. I am currently starting to learn some Japanese and for me this is by far the hardest.
I study English, French and German and I can still keep it up. So I don't think it's really hard. You'll have to imagine a kind of box in your head. When you're studying English you open the drawer of English and when you study another language you open the drawer of that language.
That's the way I see those kind of things. :D
That's how you can keep the languages separated.
You must not connect the languages too much with each other, but when you'll still do it you can see in the French language some similarity with the English language.
The most differences are in the grammer, but some words are the same... ;)
Japanese is indeed much harder than French, especially for its grammar.
You may try Chinese if you don't want get involved in much grammar difficulties. :P
By the way, which one is harder , French or German? And had you encountered any difficulty in English when you learning French?me this is by far the hardest. [/quote]
hi, thanks for answering my posts, that is really helpful

I just hope your case is typical of most people , so that worry discussed previously may not happen to me .
I'm an English speaker, so I didn;'t have any trouble with English. I found German harder than French because of the cases.
