Go for French, German is very difficult to learn, especially the grammar, to many rules you must learn. Even though German is quite similar to Dutch, it's still very difficult for us (Dutch people) to learn.
as to grammar in german, i've been told that it's just like in russian, with all the rules and stuff. so that's not gona be very difficult. plus edish(one of jewish languages not sure of spelling) is about40-50% based on german, so it's posible to understand them if u know german. prononciation i think is ok too. but what about french? how's the grammar and rules in it?
I don't know Russian, so i have no idea if it's got the same rules and stuff. Ok, with German maybe the rules are not so complicated, the problem is (in my opinion) all the exceptions on those rules.
Anyway, you're right about Jiddish or Yiddish if you can understand German then Jiddish wont be a problem and visa versa.
Jiddish: Jiddiš is gor ništ asoi šwer!
German: jiddish is gar nicht so schwer!
I had French (a long time ago) for three semesters, i thought it was not so difficult, i think the grammar and rules are quite logical. The problem is the prononciation. If that's not ok when you go to France they just ignore you, even when your spelling is perfect.
well i think i'll start learning french in about a month or two, when i go to college. cuz so far most of who i asked answered in favor of french. so i'll learn this one and if i want i'll maybe get german later . gona be cool though learning this romantic language i guess
