Our high school required you to have two years of French or Spanish, THEN you had the option to learn German or Italian.

The difficulty with Chinese is the inflections on the words. Grammatically, its easier because each word only has one form.

It just different, but i think that not more complexe when we understand how work the system.

No, I know a little and its not that bad. Its just that coming from a language that uses inflections to accent words, to a language where the inflection can change the word completely is difficult. I remember a story a one of my teachers told me about when he was in China. The guy speaks Chinese fluently, as his wife is Chinese, but one time he was at a store and spoke something like a question because he wasn't sure about it. Turns out he swore the guy, but the guy just laughed and told him what he had done wrong.

I see, that really a lot different then.

Yeah, the fact that Chinese is a tonal language can make it pretty difficult. A common word that teachers use to explain the difference between the four tones is "ma". mā​ means mother, m​ means rope, mǎ​ means horse, and m​ means to yell.

And even still, there are words that are pronounced the same, but have different characters and mean different things, like homophones in English. For instance, 妈 (mā) means mother, but 蚂 (also mā) means grasshopper.

I hope I never have to go to China! :lol:
