Learn French/Spanish from English or from German?
I'd like to start the french or the spanish course (haven't decided yet).
Now that I know german (enough to complete the german tree easily) I'm considering whether it would be better to learn these languages from the german interface.
Considering the grammar and the lexical resource, are french and spanish more similar to english or to german?
E.g. german has noun genders, and so do french & spanish AFAIK.
What do you think?
Personally, I find French and especially Spanish closer to English than German (as a French and Spanish learner, and German speaker). Although, German/English are both Germanic languages and Spanish/French are both Latin languages, unless you are very confident with your German, I would recommend doing French/Spanish from English for an easier route. However, I will encourage you to take the more challenging route, because you can't just stay in your comfort zone, right? And hopefully you can become more confident in your German while learning a new language.
