Which one is the easiest of the three. I personally think French is quite hard, but thats maybe because I don't enjoy it. I'm asking as I need an A in a foreign language to get into a Uni course. And these are the only three languages that my College is offering. Unless there is some kind of home study language I can do that will get me a Higher

I "think" Spanish is easier as they don't have masculine and femenin. I could be wrong though.

Also I beleive Spanish is on of the most spoken languages in the world (Mexico etc) however I do like Italian.

I was having a look at Spanish it sounded a little like French, and they had all these upside down question marks and things, whats all that about?
banned#5
Out of interest, what university course are you looking at?
#7
German is the easiest language - but it isnt as popular a tourist destination.
if you could be fluent in one, im sure you'd prefer it to be french or spanish
#8
Yeah I dabbled in German and it was really enjoyable and easy to learn. I think because I'm scottish it was easier to pronounce alot of the words. I've been looking at alot of local colleges and most of them dont even do higher studies and if they do its English and Maths

Spoken a bit of all three at one time or other. Spanish is easiest to learn.
#12
Everyone seems to think Spanish is easier. I'm gonna get some books from the library and give it a try :)

I'd say Spanish. Have a look at mango.com, they do free language courses. Have a go at all 3 and pick the easiest for you!

I'm learning Italian but I agree Spanish is easiest because it makes simple plurals etc. You can also get regular listening practice with BBC NEWS in Spanish on this link;

Best of luck.

That would be perfect for no fem or masc as in Japanese they have this and its extremely hard to remember both the female and masculine. Aswell as the 2,000+ Kanji, then the Hiragana and Katakana. Not forgetting their weird sentence structure, ahhh :w00t:

Thanks fot the link cannyscot. I'm sort of glad these languages are mainstream as books and cds are easy to get a hold of :)

They are posted at the beginning of a question along with the normal question mark at the end. Nothing sinister about them.
I have done French Spanish and German in my time. Spanish is definately the easiest. I did Spanish GCSE and remember lots but can't remember the basics of french, yet apparently I have a degree in it.
#20
I did French at school, purely as i thought it was **** easy to learn.

Ended up with a Higher, but it was a C (did absolutely nothing in my Higher year for it lol)

You are wrong, there is maculine and feminine in Spanish

Question marks upside down is a question mark.

I still say french. Mais oui mon pomme de terre as Del might say PMSL.
#24
I have done French and Spanish, French to degree level in Normandy.
If you want my opinion, French is easier to listen to and to speak. This is because once you have the grammar, it is easy to construct sentences.
Spanish whilst harder to listen to because the spanish speak so fast, the words are easier to learn and you can probably get by. Some words sound more like English.
Italian if you want a niche language but it is similar in some respects to Spanish. Spanish is more widely spoken though.
If your course will involve going abroad, then Spain is the one. France was boring for me and they hated the Brits.
I have been to proper Spain and lived their culture. What they lack in money, they make up in parties and nights out. The food is good and that's not forgetting the weather.
Hope that helps :thumbsup:
#25
IMO all 3 are pretty similar - romance languages with similar grammar and sentence construction. Italian is by far the easiest to pronounce and to figure out what someone is saying because all the letters are pronounced phonetically. Italian and Spanish are very similar with a lot of nouns in common - more or less.

You're right, ugly as it is, German is by far the easiest if you want to learn a European language.
#28
exactly, i mean even uncle albert successfully dabbles in it:giggle:
#29
German is easier for the English becuase the grammar is simpler and a lot of the words sound English

Espanol es muy bueno idioma, me trabajo en Eivissa por 4 anos, es fácil aprender.
Spanish is very good, I worked in Ibiza for 4 years, it is easy to learn :)

On a side note it does sound really good when you get fluent in it, and is widely spoken in places such as Mexico, America and many other places, French is spoken in France and Canada, lol.

French is also spoken in many African countries, parts of Belgium and Luxembourg....BTW you need to work on your sentence construction...

Looks like i am the only one that thinks Italian is easiest . Would certainly agree French is hardest though. Buona Pasqua.
#37
Grazie mille, buona pasqua anche a te.

すごい!みなさんありがとございます~!

if you need an A then you can't really start one from scratch and expect an A at A level.
Spanish will be hard to listen to.
Stick with the French, any other option is too risky unless you pit in loads of work

To be honest I have forgotten ALL my french so it would be like starting all over again. I'm not expecting to finish this language within 1 year. I'm going to span this over 2 years
