well this has been bugging me for a while since i will be signing up for high school classes soon and i cant decide if i should take German or Spanish as my foreign language. right now i'm leaning towards German since i didn't do vary good at Spanish when i did it for half a semister in 6th grade but i know that in the long run i would benefit more from learning Spanish but still. Also i have pretty much no knowledge of either language since i've forgot all the junk i learned in 6th. So any thoughs would help

thanks

At my school it's the opposite, german is definitely easier.


However, you will use spanish more.

Spanish is easier and way more useful than german could be, think of it this way, learn spanish and you can communicate with millions[rough estimate], as with german it only applies to germany and german americans.

I wondered the same thing when I was choosing my classes, and I decided to take German. MISTAKEEEEE!!!!! MISSSTAAAKEEE!!!
I thought "hey I'll be different and take german, derehrhehehrdudhuhuh"
And now 3 years later I AM FCKING SICK OF IT. It was an easy blowoff class, which was why I didn't correct myself and switch to spanish, and spanish is considerably harder, but if you put enough work into it, you'll benefit greatly.

I knew I should have taken spanish the minute I heard "Caress Me Down" by Sublime

Spanish (particularly the Mexican dialect) sounds like a "dirty" language to me.

Too fast and slangy.

Wasted two years in high school learning it.

With German, you can sound ****ing intimidating when you're pissed!

I've taken 4 years of spanish, and my friends have taken a few years of german in high school. Most of the german students say they've wasted years, others are stubborn, All in all, our top level german class has a grand total of 5 people.

You'll forget them both after 2 years of not using them, so unless you plan on talking to hlatinos, learn german its much more kickass.

"The estimate for just native speakers of German is between 99 and 110 million."

It is also spoken in Austria, Switzerland, Luxembourg, and Liechtenstein. Plus the Germans are more active than Mexico in sciences and industry, so if you're interested in one of those fields, it might be a little more practical.

german is easier to learn for anglophones, but spanish would be more useful to know. however if all you are doing is taking one class you'd hardly be fluent so i'd say german as you'd probably get a better mark
#30
Ya'll know Mexico isnt the only Spanish speaking country right...?

Anyway, if you got a spare opening in your schedule learn both, I believe spanish is more useful in the long run, though i would love to learn german, but in the end is up to you man.

dude, german is so bad ass. and everyone knows germans are way sexier than mexicans.


Almost every country in Latin America speaks spanish, not just Mexicans.

TS, imo you should learn spanish since you live in America, you'll have to deal with Latins more often that with germans.

German. The language at first can be hard to grasp as a lot of it is different in a way from english (genitive case anyone?). Once you get past the first couple years it gets way easier, and spanish, pbbt.
