french or german
Would you say that french or german is harder to learn? My 15 year old sister wants to take one or the other (her high school offers only spanish french and german and she doesn't want to take spanish). She asked me and i told her that's not the best criteria for studying a language, but that's her criteria. she'll have to take two years

I'ce only studied French, but i remember it was exceptionally hard to pronounce.

I apologise for this post since I know there were a few like it some months ago but I cant find them in the memories. if you can direct me to them, i'd be glad.

thank you! =)
