Best Languages to learn for Cantonese native speaker
Which languages should I learn first? So I am a native speaker of Cantonese and I am fluent in Mandarin and English... I have been taking Spanish at school for 2 years (Almost B1 level) and I want to take on my 5th language. I would like to ask which language would be the easiest to learn in the following list of languages I'm interested.
Romance: -Catalan -Latin -French
Germanic: -German -Dutch -Afrikaans (Start on memrise first and wait for duolingo course) -Norwegian -Sweedish -Danish
Others: -Esperanto -Arabic (I will start with textbooks firsst and wait for duolingo course) -Swahili
Hooray!!! A fellow Cantonese native!!! And fluent in Mandarin and English as well!!!
Since you're Cantonese (me as well) Vietnamese, Korean and Japanese are very similar to Cantonese/Mandarin (Vietnamese in words, Korean practically identical, Japanese in Mandarin words.)
The grammar may be difficult in Japanese and/or Korean (I have a friend teaching me basic Korean (HINT: She's 2 years younger than me XDDDD)
Or French. It might be easy, after all, English is nothing but misspelled French, in my mind.
The most fun language, however, of the ones I just chose, would probably be Korean (wait till you hear how they say thirty-seven (and all numbers in general) in Korean. I couldn't stop laughing for 10 minutes (it was way too Cantonese-like, they said it, sam-shi-chi (at the end of chi you have a sudden ending that's a mix between d and t.) NO OFFENSE TO ALL KOREAN SPEAKERS. I BEG YOU ALL FOR FORGIVENESS.
PS Afrikaans is available on Mondly Languages.
Eyy! A fellow native speaker!! Don't see that a ton! I would say choose a language that piques your interest. Maybe because your favorite actor speaks it (learning Romanian because of Sebastian Stan), or you like the pop culture of the country (like KPOP). There's no use of learning a language if you have no interest in it.
