If you have no familarization with either go for German because English is a Germanic language. However, Itlaian is a Romance language and English also has many Latin roots. Also, if you have ancestors from one of the languages go with that one. good luck [ aBsTrAcTwOrLd3's advice column | Ask aBsTrAcTwOrLd3 A Question ]

S_C answered Saturday January 29 2005, 7:52 pm: Well I'm italian, so that's what I would choose. Also because italian is a lot like spanish, so if you know spanish it won't be too hard to lean italian. And italian is more romantic. But also I looked through some of the other answers you got and I like what AKSherma (or whatever the name was) had to say. I mean it all depends. Also, I don't have much against german, but I only know how to say one thing in german which is the word NO! (Nine) Yeah... it was easy to learn, but german language is hard to learn (or at least to me it was) Good luck with your choice though!! [ S_C's advice column | Ask S_C A Question ]

sk8rgurl answered Saturday January 29 2005, 4:04 pm: In my opinion i would choose itallian. ITs a really pretty language, and if u learn how to speak it u can visit Italy!! i would rather be in italy then germany, but thats just me!
KateStar1011 answered Saturday January 29 2005, 2:49 pm: I would say which ever culture interest you the most. I know that German is much more harder than Italian. Itlian really resembles Spanish a lot and German is like...uhh..kinda random things. It's just that sometime in German words don't git together like they should. But trying studying the cultures and seeing whichever one you think is better. :)
Have a wonderful day!

AKSherma answered Saturday January 29 2005, 2:24 pm: In school, I took French, which is not that useful to me now.
However, the language that you choose depends on what you want to do with it later...
German: great to know if you want to go into business. The USA does a lot more business with Germany (esp engineering and finance).
Italian: Is a great language to know esp if you're into the arts and theatre (opera originated in Italy and most times still performed there) it is also a much more romantic language.
If you are thinking of another language that will be useful to you in the United States I would suggest Spanish. I wish i had taken spanish b/c hispanics are the largest growing minority group in the country.
