Basque is not a latin language. This is one of the most mysterious language in the world because there is no link with others languages.
But you forget Sarde from Sardaigne, Romanche in Switzerland and others languages that have few speakers. ;)
Anyway, I think latin language are the most beautiful. I have no real preference between Spanish and Italian

For obvious reasons I find Spanish the easiest :p well we have a hell of verbal tenses and people tend to mix ser/estar or use indicativo when subjuntivo should be used but appart of that it's ok.
The worst for French IMO is pronounciation, and for me, Italian sounds more fluid and better (for Spanish people usually Italian>French) but French has that Je ne sais quoi :hearts:

On the other hand, career wise, you can find many more people who speak French as a foreign language than Italian. So as you are just majoring in languages take that in mind, Ross...French & Spanish are so popular and competition will be harder than for a native English speaker to be fluent in both Spanish and Italian. Plus once you know Spanish it will be way easier to learn Italian than French.

Oh okay. I guess then it depends on why you're doing them.

Italian is useless but like someone said you do it solely for personal enjoyment. It will be a lot easier to pick up Italian than French. But French is obviously more useful.

If anything you should do French and later pick up Italian which in phonetics is closer to Spanish but French has a lot of lexical similarities with Italian. I would think if you know French and Spanish very well, it's not going to require much more work to pick up Italian.

On that basis, I recommend French.

French culture is not solely due to Italy. French culture is a very strong marriage of Roman, Celtic and Germanic culture. Charlemagne spoke German. There are also very strong Arabic influences and even some Slavic influences in France. :)

As far as the Romance languages go, I probably enjoy French slightly more than Spanish. Italian, Romanian and Portuguese are languages that I have not studied since I was bored with Romance languages. I went on to learn German and Russian and found both of them considerably more interesting on many levels. At first, I found German and Russian to be "hard" sounding but I realized that that was due to years of propaganda by my French teachers and friends insisting that their language was the best. :lol: Now I have realized that I really enjoy all 4 languages that I have learned and the little bit of Czech that I speak too!

Linguam Latinam amo. I loved studying Latin- will have to revise it. Took it for 4 years in high school and also at uni. I think I loved it the most, even though I also studied some French. Alors, j'aime le français aussi. If you learn Latin it will really help you with romance languages and it gives you a real understanding that grammar is actually something real (and not just made up by teachers).

Hmmm are you sure about that? Spanish has been influenced heavily by Arabic for historical reasons whereas Italian little to none at all. I've always thought that it was Spanish-Portuguese and French-Italian that had the most lexical similarity. Not Spanish-Italian.

Having said that that's only one aspect of a language. And I can say that in spite of that it will be easily for a Spanish speaker to pick up Italian than French.

But I guess ultimately it also depends on whether that said poster would like to pick up both French and Italian down the track or whether they will be content with just French or Italian.

That's a very important consideration because learning French before Italian will be better than going the other way. IMO.

What do you think?

Costa Rica, Equador, and Uruguay have beautiful Spanish. The Mexican Spanish is one of the most neutral , that is until you go to the North and start speaking "Norteno" :tape: , Central and South East Mexico have lovely accents :hearts: I find Castellano { from Spain} a bit harsh at times :o but their accent is the most beautiful thing ever :hearts:

Okay people, you've all helped Enchanté decide, now I need help :lol:.

I know French right now, I would say fluently, and I'm just working to perfect it. However, I'm about to transfer to a four-year school, and I will need to pick a major to go along with French. I'm also in intro Spanish, and it's borringly easy because of all the basic similarities to French. I'm sure it will get more challening, but right now it's not :shrug:

Anyway, I need to make a decision. I can do one of the following:
French and Spanish double major
Modern Language major (meaning French and Spanish, basically a double major but with 2 less classes in each) and International Studies as a second major
Modern Language major and another language minor (language choices being Chinese, Arabic, or German). So, I would learn three languages, two with about 8 classes worth of study and the third with only about 5.
Modern Language major and English as a second major

Basically, I want to be as marketable as possible. Obviously, languages like Chinese and Arabic are in need in the United States; but, with only 5 classes in each over a 2 1/2 year period, I wouldn't image that I could get very fluent in them :shrug:

And, the International Studies major seems nice, but would it really be worth it? I would be losing Spanish and French credits just to take basic political science and relations classes.

I really can't see myself doing anything bussiness-y, that's why I'm stearing clear of International Business. I really just want to speak to and work with foreigners. Or, perhaps, work in something like a US consulate abroad. I want to experience other cultures!!! :lol:.

too much bashing for Chilean accent:(

I don´t think Chilean accent is one of the worst, I mean no ofense to anyone but seriously I don´t think that any other spanich accent can posibly be as awful as the Puertorrican accent:o...oh my.



the thing about Chilean accent is that sometimes I don´t understand it :sobbing:
but it doesn´t sounds bad or ugly :shrug:

Likely because of the many Italians that have emigrated to Argentina over the years.... :shrug:

yes I know.
but I had never heard such español-italiano thing.

I guess it would be fair to say that we speak spanish-náhuatl then :shrug:


my father is from Argentina I find it amazing how he has been here for more than than he lived in Argentina and he still can´t get rid of the accent(and when he goes and comes back the accent is even worst), while I know many Argentinians living in México that got rid of the accent a long time ago.

If your main desire to to speak as many languages as possible and experience different cultures, then go for two languages.

French and Spanish double major :hearts: Exactly the same as me :D

Thoughts?

Unless if you're really, really interested, I wouldn't bother with Chinese or Arabic because it's just too hard and you wouldn't get anywhere.

I think Arabic is easier. The big advantage is that it uses an alphabet - alef ba etc... Westerners (native Germanic/Romance speakers) can become quite good at Arabic but Chinese I think is really a whole different world.

Anyway, I digress. If I were you, I would do French and Spanish and an international studies major. However, your case is a lot different to the other person because for me that was an easy choice (between French and Italian). In your case, it depends on too many variables.

So I suggest you just get more information and go with what you really want to do.
