If I were you, I'd start with Japanese first and then move on to Korean.
See that is what I thought too. A friend that is Japanese said it was due to the Korean alphabet being a bit easier to learn. I have downloaded apps for my Kindle to start.

While their cohesiveness is astonishing, I can see the threat that some see as well. China owns a great portion of American debt. People have argued that if they decided to call that debt, then that would be catastrophic to the American economy. Them buying up so much land may be seen as the set up for a takeover.

If so many feel that China "HATES" us why would they seek to help us? Not only by lending us money, but by opening businesses that could potentially help our economy. It's almost like a conflict in interest. They lend us money and get it right back.

Ehhh. I don't know what to believe with this one. Watching.

Chinese "lending" money is an oversimplification. They are making investments expecting a healthy return. It's not any type of good will gesture.

Chinese are notoriously racist and ethnocentric. I expect the overall plight of Blacks in America to remain unchanged.

Really why Tokyo? Not mandarin first?

We live in a global village and the village is getting smaller. Resistance only slows your own progression. We should be encouraging all our children other languages and not just English. To learn Mandarin is excellent. It is a massive advantage to have.

Why do you say this?  The reason why I ask is I would assume that Chinese would be a good starting point since a lot of East Asian languages have a lot of Chinese loanwords.

Spanish/Portuguese + English and u got all the Americas covered, a few countries in Africa and Europe. Our most gifted language learners should tackle Mandarin, Japanese, Arabic.



With that kind of thinking, of course you won't learn a language but I feel that if you put in the effort and try a different learning method, like immersion, you can communicate with those who speak a different language.  True you may not be fluent but at least you can say you know a second language.
