Worth learning

Anything other than English is garbage not worth learning and even then Chinese is more relevant than any other European language besie English, the same could be said about Arabic if the language was not split into many different dialects but still MSA is more worth it than sissy French.

They are not as good as you think
They are always people whose parents traveled around and they picked up languages as they grew with the advantage of a young brain.

By the time they are 15 they can speak like 5 or 7 languages to different degrees of fluency then they get to intermediate level in different languages in a year each. By the time they are in their 20's they speak 2 languages and a lot of '' in reality I speak some of x language but instead I said I speak them''. I've watched many videos of hyperpoliglots and they always speak 2 languages fluently and the rest they seem fluent to someone who is not familiar with the language but in fact are not.
An example is the guy Moses a black dude on youtube he studies many languages to a basic level. Whenever he speaks in Arabic he uses super simple expressions and vocabulary that are beginner tier and never actually says anything intermediate or above, the same can be said about his Japanese (I've been studying those languages for some time) and according to comments on his videos it is the same with most of his languages except his English and Chinese.

John Gutierrez

2/2

Also by learning a bit of those two languages I've realized how easy it is to learn similar languages since by the time you start you already know over half the language (massive amount of similar words) This cuts down the amount of time required for learning a language in over half and it also allows you to start reading a lot sooner which is the biggest teaching and language improving tool you could do when learning any language.
Learning words in Arabic is a lot harde not only do you have to remember weird sound combinations and long vowels which is something that doesn't exist in Spanish but you also have to learn Irregular plural form of the words (meaning you have to learn 2 words for the same word in most cases unless the plurar is regular btw plural in arabic is 3+ while 2 is called dual and gets formed by addin ''ani'' or 'ayni''at the end of the word) + the fact that there are a lot of synonyms so by the time you learned a word in arabic you could have learned like 10 in a language related to yours.
In japanese all words sound the same and you have to remember not only how to write the kanji but also how they are placed inside the word.
In reality speaking 10+ non related languages at a proficient c1+ level will take you at least 20+ years unless you are a genius. Whenever you learn a language it is like being accepted into a family so if you learn MSA (arabic) and then you go learn Persian you will find a lot of shared words.

Moses is based though, sure he gets a lot of hate on his comments but he gets more support and praise from natives as well.

Also moses has been studying diffferent langs over 10 years he's over 40. what's impressive about him is that he's still fluent in several non indo-european langs , even if you cut out japanese and arabic from his list.

Sure he probably is only C1 in a handful of his langs but im a strong believer that quantity is better than quality ,

I mean what is the actual purpose to be C1 in arabic and japanese as an american living in america?

Id honestly rather be B1 in chinese, arabic , russian, and japanese , than be C1 in just one non-indo european lang.

you can do a lot of shit at B1 level , and it still takes a lot of time and effort to reach this level in a non indoeuropean language

also moses isnt the dude i get jelous of it's that dorner fag, he's some zoomer from new york and luca , italian dude now those guys are gifted

Only language learners that make me butthurt are western females learning Japanese, specially when they try to talk and sound all ''cutesy kawaii like'' it makes me want to quit the language.

By the time you are b1 in all of those lang you would probably be c1 or b2 in 2 and trust me b1 is not enough to read a language comfortably while b2 is.

I've read about Chinese grammar and from what I've found out it is literally the most brainlet language ever. Grammar is the easiest thing ever and words never conjugate or change you just slap word next to word and you are done, I can make simple Chinese sentence like 我愛你 just by knowing Japanese kanji. As for Russian I studied it for a bit then dropped it when I realized words are gendered and I had learnt a bunch of words without knowing their gender( I also was starting to learn arabic and didn't wanted to learn two languages at the same time that had gendered nouns sadly I hadn't gotten to the part that says that most feminine words in arabic had t tamarboota and the rest are masculine otherwise I wouldn't have dropped Russian) but from reading around they say the grammar is easier than Arabic.
Arabic grammar is a lot harder than Japanese grammar but it is so logical that I would say it is easier to master than Japanese grammar.

My difficulty ranking would be

Arabic > Japanese > Russian > Chinese

Kanji and Hanzi (the same thing both translate to chinese character) look insanely hard when you don't know anything about them but after learning around 500 you will have learned all the radicals and whenever you find a new character you will give it a single glance and learn it without having to check stroke order. Chinese characters are only hard at the beginning if you do something like ''remembering the hanzi'' while mastering the tones you can learn Chinese to fluency in like less than a year.

By the time you are b1 in all of those lang you would probably be c1 or b2 in 2, and time you have to spend to reach C1 from B1 , for me getting to german C1 from B1 was well over a year

you underestimate the gap between b1 and b2 but at the same time you acknowledge , that B1 is still a basic level since you said yourself B1 isnt good enough to read.

But again I ask , whats the point of being an excellent reader unless youre really into that langs literature.

For most chads like moses who just uses a lang to communicate about basic every day shit, b1 is more than enough.

and even if the argument was be C1 in 2 langs or b1 in 4 langs ,if the langs were non indo -european. Because basically what I want to do with a language is not necessarily be as prifficient as a native but be able to to travel to the country and simply talk to the people there and read important signs and bilboards in that lang, because after all that shit is kino

Also I disagree with ur decision to stop russian but that's just my opinion , i like when langs have a complicated challenge to them not found in other langs

Louis Wain (5 August 1860 – 4 July 1939) was an English artist best known for his drawings, which consistently featured anthropomorphized large-eyed cats and kittens. In his later years he may have suffered from schizophrenia (although this claim is disputed among specialists), which, according to some psychiatrists, can be seen in his works.
H. G. Wells said of him, "He has made the cat his own. He invented a cat style, a cat society, a whole cat world. English cats that do not look and live like Louis Wain cats are ashamed of themselves."

When I started learning Arabic I wanted to pic another language because the Arabic I'm learning is MSA (modern standard Arabic) which is different from what they speak in day to day life and it a a language that no one has as a native language if you want to know Arabic, after learning MSA you have to learn a dialect but it will be a piece of cake since dialects are just dumbed down MSA so Learning Arabic is like learning 1.5 langauges rather than just 1. Since MSA is no ones native tongue I wanted to learn a language that people had as their native one so when I was learning about the Arabic writing system I also started learning the Cyrillic alphabet and a bunch of words and I thought that I would have to remember the gender of all words in both languages but I was barely starting and didn't know that in both languages you can easily see the gender of a word so I dropped it for Japanese. I will learn Russian in some years after I'm done with 1 of those.

When I was a b1 English learner I couldn't pick up any videogame and play it trough without missing big portions of the plot and the same can be said about my Japanese and Arabic (Both high a2 or just starting b1) meaning I know the basic grammar and can mantain basic conversation but still a lot of unknown vocab and grammar.

I'd say solid A2 and 3k words is enough for travelling the country, I can understand a lot of signs from seeing places in the middle east using google maps but a b1 would be a lot more solid.

Oh right, let's get serious.
Depending on what 'baby' means here, we have several options.
If it means infant:
Musen stal min bebis ost.
If it's an endearing term for your partner (romantic love) or platonic but intense love like what one might have for their children:
Musen stal min älsklings ost.
Or just the romantic love bit:
Musen stal min älskades ost.
and then there's a myriad of terms for platonic endearment like between girlfriends, but it's too much to go over and I'm sure it's not what the challenge writer thought of anyway.

When I was A2 in german, I suppose it was enough for the bare minumum like surivive, but to converse a little bit and get to know people for sure you need B1, I still remember how long it would take me in my head to form a basic sentence in german when I was A2.

If you're learning all of the rules, you're wasting time.
You only need to be able to understand written MSA, not produce it or read it aloud. A lot of the grammar that you're learning may be absolutely unnecessary. (I'm talking about rules relating to unwritten short vowels.)

Xavier Campbell

High media presence (not as high as Egyptian, but it's enough to work with as a language learner).
Spoken in four countries, you can tailor your accent to be relatively neutral. You can sound metropolitan/international whilst generally adhering to a particular dialect.
Geographically at the center of the Mashriq.
Arguably the best sounding. Most people (arabs and non-arab) have a relatively positive opinion of how Levantine sounds.
And most Arabs outside Egypt think that Egyptian sounds comical.

Asher Murphy

Xavier Long

None of what you're saying is true. Russians cannot understand spoken Ukrainian. Ukrainian shares a lot of vocabulary with Polish that is not in Russian. Grammatically, all three langauges are very similar, it's vocabulary that's the major difference. Seriously, just start with Russian. There's more speakers, more resources, and more people who can help you.

Egyptian is widespread only in that it has a lot of speakers centered on one very overpopulated city.
If you only want to visit Egypt, fine, learn Egyptian.
But Levantine pronunciation is more neutral. Nowhere else is ج pronounced in such an obnoxious manner, and this negates whatever benefit Egyptian gains from it's reach in the media.

You want an entirely non-subjective reason? Consider the fact that if you learn Egyptian, you will have a hard time understanding anything that ISN'T Egyptian.

Louis Wain (5 August 1860 – 4 July 1939) was an English artist best known for his drawings, which consistently featured anthropomorphized large-eyed cats and kittens. In his later years he may have suffered from schizophrenia (although this claim is disputed among specialists), which, according to some psychiatrists, can be seen in his works.

Kanji and Hanzi (the same thing both translate to chinese character) look insanely hard when you don't know anything about them but after learning around 500 you will have learned all the radicals and whenever you find a new character you will give it a single glance and learn it without having to check stroke order. Chinese characters are only hard at the beginning if you do something like ''remembering the hanzi'' while mastering the tones you can learn Chinese to fluency in like less than a year.
For someone planning to learn both Japanese and Mandarin in the next decade or so, which language would you recommend starting with?

Egyptian is widespread only in that it has a lot of speakers centered on one very overpopulated city

But you just admitted, that egytian arabic is widespread because of the media making you the most understood.

Egyptian, you will have a hard time understanding anything that ISN'T Egyptian.

I feel like the same can be said about any arabic dialect you choose to learn and depends how close the other dialect is from ur target dialect , if i chose levantine arabic would it help me understand more tunisian arabic more so than egyptian arabic? Sounds unlikely

Learning chinese because i love pictograms and it might be useful later in life.

French if you want to read works in other languages, reading Voltaire, Descartes, Sartre, Hugo etc in the original French version is amazing. Since you live in the Northeast, Quebec is close, and it's very fun to visit. French is also spoken in West Switzerland, half of Belgium, Luxembourg, many African countries, etc. I had a co-worker from Congo, a co-worker from Algeria, and a co-worker from Quebec, and they all spoke to each other in French. If you know French you can also understand a lot of other Romance languages like Spanish/Italian, all the Romance languages have very similar vocabulary and grammar.

Africa is contributing 47.7 percent (143.1 million) to the French-speaking population thereby making French a global language. This is more than 45.7 percent (137.1 million) of the whole of Europe and France with a population of 67.12 million. The growing African population is a huge contributor to French language ranking 5th on the chart. Till date, French remains the sole official language in 11 African countries and the second official language in 10. The OIF estimates that the number of French speakers will rise to over 700 million by 2050, 80 percent of whom will be in Africa.

French is also one of the working languages of many international institutions; the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD), the United Nations Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC), the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), the International Labour Organization (ILO), the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS), the World Health Organization (WHO), the World Trade Organization (WTO), the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO), the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF), the African Union (AU), the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) and the International Federation of Association Football (FIFA) thereby increasing the number of speakers.

Louisana's small towns also have a lot of French speakers. The only people that still speak German in America are the Amish with their weird dialect of German.

Several varieties of French evolved in what is now the United States:

Louisiana French, spoken in Louisiana by descendants of colonists in French Louisiana
New England French, spoken in New England by descendants of 19th and 20th-century Canadian migrants
Missouri French, spoken in Missouri by descendants of French settlers in the Illinois Country
Muskrat French, spoken in Michigan by descendants of habitants, voyageurs and coureurs des bois in the Pays d'en Haut
Métis French, spoken in North Dakota by Métis people

More recently, French has also been carried to various parts of the nation via immigration from Francophone regions. Today, French is the second most spoken language (after English) in the states of Maine and Vermont, and the third most spoken (after English and Spanish) in the states of Louisiana, Connecticut, Rhode Island, and New Hampshire.[2][4]

Lads, I am doing a degree in Asian Studies and I need to learn 2 Asian languages among several options like Japanese, Turkish, Chinese, Arabic, Persian, Hindi, Korean, etc

I chose Japanese and Chinese but I really hate Chinese because I realized I'm garbage at tonal languages and after 1 year of learning it, I still can't understand shit they say because they have such short words and I get lost
I have the option of changing it next year. I was thinking about learning Korean instead. How hard is Korean? Is it worth it? or os that a brainlet move?

it's not just the tones, the language feels fucked to understand and too speak it too. I can understand about 70% of the Chinese characters I encounter but... the other day, I tried speaking to a Chinese guy in Chinese and he asked me what language I am speaking. I'm learning it for one year, let that sink in. J U S T

Also the heavy use of modal particles is pretty cool.

Instead of expressing themselves through changes in tone, Germans encode their emotions towards a topic into seemingly meaningless words thrown haphazardly piled up somewhere in the middle of the sentence.

I am probably not the best example to ask because I already hold a Bachelor's degree in Finance that I got a few years back, so I want something related to important/export, investment, or foreign trade where I can make use of the languages I learned.

In Traditional Chinese, tho I guess it would be easy to convert to Simplified too if there's interest in that (I have no idea why, since it's probably a better idea to read the classics in Traditional, and switching between Traditional and Simplified isn't a big deal when you know one reasonably well.) It could also probably be adapted for Japanese, Korean, and Vietnamese fairly easily by anyone who knows those languages.

Brody Powell
Brody Powell

A bit of personal experience and a reason for doing this: not coming off as someone who's never read a book makes a huge difference in communicating with Chinese people, and bits of Classical Chinese come up all the time, especially when reading the newspaper or listening to educated people speak. It's not just an arcane interest but actually pretty damn critical for getting along with Chinese people.

German:
1. Because I have it in school.
2. I want to read languages in their original language

Latin:
1. Because It enables me to read texts from Roman times all the way to 1900th in the original writing.
2. It enables me to better understand the meaning behind diffrent words, and understand why language is structured the way it is.

French:
1. I want to study in France
2. I want to read texts in their original language

Futher I want to learn:
Spanish, Russian, Italian, and Arabic.

Mainland Chinese are cancer but Hong Kong, Taiwan, Macau, and Singapore are very rich, developed, clean, advanced, and safe countries. Singapore is basically a utopia on Earth.

Levi Anderson

Koreans are nice, old people may be smug and rude but young are mostly very nice and polite.
For Japs I don't know but probably mostly the same + national pride but still reasonable.
Chinks are cancer, youngsters are full nationalist zoomers. Super thin skinned and aggressively nationalistic, very consumerist and shallow. Super familiar right away to the point of being really rude (mfw when Koreans and Japanese girls who go to China get super angry cauz Chinese just friendly call them "bitch" lol).
But if you do something THEY deem rude (and since they are incredibly thin skinned it's pretty much anything) then they get to get angry at you. Can't even fuck the girls and ignore the guys because of how they control them tight.
Just avoid this shithole, every smart Chinese just want one thing and it's to leave China. Ppl who lurk 4chin might think Jap and Koreans hate each others because of the autistic threads, and there are some tensions but it's mostly politic, the overwhelming majority hate Chinese.

Also this. Or learn Japanese or Korean.

Chinese characters are only hard at the beginning if you do something like ''remembering the hanzi'' while mastering the tones you can learn Chinese to fluency in like less than a year.
Call me when you actually do that.
