I want to learn a foreign language but I really can't
decide between the two...so I posted this poll
to see what others believe.

Please justify your answer...

>both too difficult to be learned
????

Both are difficult. Japanese has some phonetic advantages but if you want to learn to write best of luck to you, you mad bastard. Japan has more interesting art, history and philosophy. It also has cool arcades and excellent fucked up pornography.

consult websites dedicated to questions like this UG is largely losers and weeaboos who play RPGs and shit u really wanna hear their advice/

Mandarin is GOAT

Chinese if you're serious, it has way more global speakers and expats. Also quite a unique language, works on tones so that one written word could mean something else if pronounced a certain way.

Why have you narrowed it down just to these two?


Anyway probably Chinese out of the two. Learn Mandarin though because Canton Chinese isn't so widely spoken.

Mandarin for sure mate.

So does you

Depends on what languages you already know and why you want to learn them and what resources are available. Only you can really decide.

I can't speak either fluently but I am more familiar with Chinese (Mandarin and Hokkien) so I would want to continue learning Mandarin.

From a practical standpoint, Japanese is completely worthless. Mandarin has the most native speakers worldwide, so if utility is a factor go with Mandarin.

Personally, I can speak some mandarin and it's an extremely difficult language to learn, but it has been rewarding studying it for years.

Fun fact: "long time no see" is a borrowed phrase from Chinese. Only one I know of.

Japanese is better for impressing people.

Imagine showing up at a party filled with cool people and hot babes and being all like, "KAIZOKU OU NI ORE WA NARU~~~~!" You'll have to fight your way out from underneath a pile of breasts and genitals.

I'm of Japanese descent and have travelled to Japan before and will return so I'm biased.

From what I know of Madarin there is an emphasis on the way you pronounce words. So it can be very hard to learn how to pronounce one phonetic word in several different ways. I also think we consume more Japanese media and culture here in the West than Chinese media and culture.

Yup. I'm very fond of some of their aesthetic philosophies, find folks like Kenkö and Ryokan to generally be more interesting than the Chinese philosophers/poets I've run into and enjoy the noise and sound art scene that has burgeoned there.

The Japanese "art photography" community is, while multifaceted, ostensibly far more experimental than what I see over here, in the US, Europe etc and whenever an issue on the stuff comes out dedicated to it, it always surprises me. I've not been tickled by stuff I've seen in China nearly as much, though there is some good stuff there of course.

China's recent political history is fascinating but I now find more interest in the writings from monks that has come out of there. Originally that came from lol samurai kewl but then I watched a few documentaries and started researching it

it's an interesting place, though not without some serious problems ;shrug:

I agree with you in general but since I know of at least one quite notable exception (based on location), we don't know where OP is from, and I like being pedantic....no
