Is French or Spanish easier for a monolingual American to learn?

Spanish probably, given how it's more accessible for you.

Spanish. French is a bit fucked up at some points, spanish is straight-foreard. Not as simple as english but whaddoyouwant, its an roman language>>16856945

Spanish. Once you figure out grammar properly, french might not that hard to learn also, but pronounciation is a whole different thing.

As someone who has studied both (fluent french, spanish meh but good enough to read the news).
Spanish is easier to learn all other things being equal. But other things are usually not equal. It'll be far easier to learn a language you actually need/use.

with Spanish you can:
>travel to south america / spain
>talk to mexican illegals
>read the handful of great south american authors / poets
>watch almodovar flicks if that's your thing
>shitpost on /int/

with French you can:
>travel to france / québec / half of africa / a handful of abnormaly rich islands in caribbean / indian ocean / pacific
>have access to the massive repository of all french literature
>take job opportunities in France, particularly with a STEM background if you're competent enough to do R&D (no offense to spain but it isn't in the same league for science / industry)
>get free croissants at your local Alliance Française

I hardly ever use my spanish (hence why it's meh, but I plan to work on it eventually) and I'm moving to france in september so make that what you will.

You'd be able to read french philosophers, that's a plus.
