You shouldn't learn a language based on how 'useful' it can be. If you don't have any interest other than that it's going to be very hard to commit and most likely end in a waste of time (and we don't live forever yet)
Either way, is there something you want to watch/read in chinese today ? (cartoons, books, movies, courses, sports, etc)
do you have desire to live in China ?

if you don't have any yes, don't learn it. You already know english and you'll be fine with it during the 21st

Probably just the kanji part. Vocab is the heart of learning Japanese. I started from there, and worked outwards to grammar and such. Learning from a traditional grammar book won't help you a whole lot in Japan. If you don't want to go to Japan, than it's not worth the effort. Learning Japanese takes a lot of time (studying every single day) and some money.

I dunno, I think the grammar side is more similar to Korean so it would be easy to study that later. And Japanese does use kanji, so you could read some Chinese if you get good enough.

Learning a language is really something you should do just to market yourself, anon. It's an absolutely massive investment and if your only interest in it is to make a few more bucks you'll either not stick with it or get that job and be absolutely miserable. There are times to pick the marketable option, this is not one.

This. Same thing if you live in Hawaii. It's a regional, nice-to-have, niche, language. I would learn Chinese first, and pivot to Japanese if one finds it interesting--the simplified Hanzi will still give you about a 2000-2500 character head start on Kanji.

Spend some time around gooks before learning one of their languages. I went to university with a bunch and we never spoke. They don't talk to anyone who isn't Asian and are impolite little cunts

If you want to interact with them you are a sadist. They are really ugly too and I say that with no irony from my inbred island, gooks are just that bad

Don't even enable the chinks. Regardless of their economy, just don't learn their languages. These countries need to fuck off and go back to irrelevance

I've spoken to a lot of international students. It was mostly Chinese at my school, and more than one told me they just keep to themselves because other students tend to be dicks to them. Never had a bad experience with one personally. The Japanese I met at uni were either absolutely delightful or incredibly withdrawn. Hell, I started learning Japanese because I liked them so much. The Brazilians on the other hand were basically irl shitposters.

The one Aussie I "met" was a grad student giving a drunk lecture and no one could understand him. Good going, Australia.

They are dicks to everyone else. I've never seen such a race that just refuses to even sit with English students to talk to them. Nobody was a dick to them ever here but they just gave up when it was just gook groups huddled together in the corner never speaking English

They're second only to Europe of the last 500 years. How does that make them terrible? That entire region is the only other pole of high human civilization on the planet. What the fuck is wrong with you? Maybe they don't teach East Asian history in school in the UK.

>>61147925
I had a few approach me when I was just chilling, doing whatever. They would chat, talk about whatever basically. Their English wasn't great but if you listen you can definitely understand them. I wouldn't say they "give up," English is fucking hard to learn. Asian languages are hard too, but you'll be good as long as you know the vocab and very basic sentence structure. I get a sense that English is much "denser" than other languages, personally.

Japanese is useful for:

2- You have ties with Japan (Work, Girlfriend)
3- You live in Japan (otherwise, you're an illiterate)

That's it.

Japanese and Chinese have the same relationship as Spanish has with Portuguese. So while "it helps", you'll not automatically and magically learn the other just because.
>>
>>61148231
He's right, senpai. "That entire region is the only other pole of high human civilization on the planet" umm.. you're thinking of Ancient China.

No, everyone who knew English, including other internationals from Europe gave up trying to talk to the gooks. For every other region of the world it was an exchange of cultures and language, I picked up quite a decent amount of several European languages just due to exposure. For the gooks, it was just sit in the corner ignoring anyone that wasn't a flat face and pretending that not knowing English so well makes it impossible to speak to others despite all the Europeans managing it easily
>>
>>61148415
Why, because they wear suits? Please. Confucianism is still alive and well, and the Chinese communist government is almost identical to the family-elite bureaucracy of the Imperial era. Unlike Germany, Japan has refused to accept post-war narratives about its culture and people, and it depopulating in part because there are too many fucking people, and not enough opportunities, which makes the costs and stresses of having children undesirable. I doubt you've ever even been to East Asia, so that would mean you talking out of your ass. You'd call anyone who wasn't wearing silk robes and a painted face "western".

You sound like some Chink apologist, senpai -- probably cause you are one.

China in classical times was god tier. P.R.C. is a fucking laughing stock. Those retarded communists destroyed any and all Chinese identity, heritage, and culture. Modern day China is like if you removed someone's soul, er.. a science analogy would be like lobotomizing a person. I've never been to Chinkland, but I've seen Chink immigrants in my high school and college and there's something "off" with them. It's like if you told a barbarian to act civilized -- that's what a modern day Chinaman is. Don't know or care about other east asian countries. Korea, Hong Kong, Japan, Singapore etc. are only good because they're literally modeled on Western civilization.

The same thing happened to Russia, but the underlying civilizational instincts remained to be reintroduced in the present. The PRC is cultural impoverished, but the KMT probably couldn't have achieved what it has managed to do on the mainland--it probably wouldn't have even survived the Cold War. If China succeeds in reintroducing Confucianism into public life and schools, as is their current plan, I have no reason to think they won't continue on a good trajectory. After all, East Asian nations will be some of the last ethnically homogeneous societies left on the planet by the end of the century, and if /pol/ believes a damn thing it ever says, the lack of a race problem is the first criterion for a successful culture. That's why I'm not discounting them, not because of the idea that the greatness of their past is still alive and well in full.

The communists did some damage but you're delusional if you think there exists a force on this planet that can change the fundamental character of a billion people country.

Study Chinese, the Japanese will always hate you even if you learn their language. It also provides zero advantage in business.

The Chinese hate you too, they'll just be less open about it. Also, if you can read/write Chinese you're less likely to get screwed over in business there. Which is still a bfd, even after the TPP inevitably passes. Also it's the written language of PRC, HK, Taiwan AND Japan. It opens more doors.

A kimono wearing otaku social studies professor and hikikomori was teaching a class on Asian History.

"Before the class begins, you must get on your knees and worship Emperor Akihito and accept that that the Japanese are the most highly-evolved human beings that the world has ever known."

At this moment, a sagacious, filial, scholar-gentleman who has scored ahead of 150,000 students in the Civil Service Exams and understood the full extent of the barbarity of those living outside Zhongguo held up a copy of the Nihon Shoki.

"What are the characters written upon the pages of the Nihon Shoki?"

The arrogant professor smirked, tightened his hachimaki, and smugly replied "Kanji, you baka."

"True, Kanji, which loosely translates into "Han characters." To be precise the Nihon Shoki is written in Guwen, which is Classical Chinese script. If the Japanese are indeed perfect human beings then they would have come up with their own culture & civilization as opposed to just borrowing from the Chinese or from anyone else."

The Professor was visibly shaken and dropped his calligraphy brush and copy of CLAMP's Cardcaptor Sakura. He stormed out of the room and tried to commit seppuku like in his animes.

The students applauded with a big "wansui!" and all signed up with the Popular Uprising that day and declared that the scholar-gentleman has the Mandate of Heaven. A dragon named "All Under Heaven" flew into the room and coiled around the Chinese flag and magically turned it yellow. The Analects was read several times, and the Jade Emperor himself showed up and enacted territorial seizures of disputed territories around the country.

The professor lost his tenure and was fired the next day. He died of complications caused by an erroneous performance of the seppuku ritual and went to Diyu, where he is tried, found guilty, and punished by the Ten Yama Kings of Diyu.

It seems to be the other way around. The Japs are in the twilight stages of an obsession with everything France. The two countries do share a love of aesthetics and both have discerning tastes.

Same dilemma as OP. I am fluent in German, Russian, English and Spanish. And I just can't decide whether to learn Chinese or Japanese. Chinese is hard as fuck to speak because of the sounds and there is nothing that interests me culturally like movies or manga. Japanese on the other hand is beautiful in my ears and there is a shitload of things I can read like ln, vn and manga but it's just not a very useful language.
China is crashing though and will likely become the next Japan economically, so it will be not very relevant.

Actually this thread just made me decide.

Even "classical" American culture is garbage.

You people were already thought of as white niggers in the 19th century.

>They fail to see the extent to which America is “negrified” not only racially and demographically, but above all in its civilization, in the behavior, and tastes of Americans, even when there has been no actual mixing with negro blood.
>Instead, besides its Puritan-Protestant component (which, in turn, as a result of its fetishistic emphasis on the Old Testament, possesses many judaized, degenerate traits), it seems that it is precisely the negro element, in its primitivism, that has set the tone in important aspects of the American psyche.
Julius Evola

>Another thing that struck me [in the American] was the great influence of the Negro, a psychological influence naturally, not due to the mixing of blood. The emotional way an American expresses himself, especially the way he laughs, can best be studied in the illustrated supplements of the American papers; the inimitable Teddy Roosevelt laugh is found in its primordial form in the American Negro. The peculiar walk with loose joints, or the swinging of the hips so frequently observed in Americans, also comes from the Negro.[3] American music draws its main inspiration from the Negro, and so does the dance. The expression of religious feeling, the revival meetings, the Holy Rollers and other abnormalities are strongly influenced by the Negro. The vivacity of the average American, which shows itself not only at baseball games but quite particularly in his extraordinary love of talking – the ceaseless gabble of American papers is an eloquent example of this – is scarcely to be derived from his Germanic forefathers, but is far more like the chattering of a Negro village. The almost total lack of privacy and the all-devouring mass sociability remind one of primitive life in open huts, where there is complete identity with all members of the tribe.

Took the N3 last time, scored in the 2nd percentile.This year, I'll try the N2 (though I'm currently already somewhere between N2 and N1 level, gotta aim for them highscores) and I'll go for the N1 next year.
My interest in Japanese started out like with everyone else, gaems and anime. But since I started being able to read Japanese without much of a problem, it's just lost some of its magic. At the moment, I pretty much just continue doing it for the challenge, and being able to "read" doujinshi without having to rely on shitty translations is also kinda nice.
Waste of time and money? Maybe. But at this point, the daily vocab and kanji has just become something I want to do every day. Plus it's probably a good memory exercise.

>>61150345
>A language spoken by people today will die in your lifetime

That's not how language works. At worst, Japanese will continue to incorporate borrowed words from other languages and continue its progression into being a largely different language from what it was a century before... as it's pretty much done for nearly two millennia since the Chinese discovered the island.

Shit, by your definition of a "dead language" English has died about four or five separate deaths in the last 1000 years alone. Japanese is a fucking iron wall of language preservation compared to some of the radical shifts English went through following the Norman conquest.

Good luck. N2 ain't so bad if you keep a well-rounded study regimen of new words, grammar and kanji up while figuring out how to study quickly with contextual knowledge that goes beyond rote memorization.
The fluency gap between N2 and N1, though, is wider than the fucking grand canyon. I've been stuck here at N2 for a better part 2 years. If you can't breeze through a Japanese newspaper like you could in your native language, or listen and fully understand a college-level lecture, N1 is pretty much out of reach.

Are Americans genuinely this retarded?

Korea is literally a knock off Japan, Japan was growing at some point, Korea is literally slowing down already they have the exact same demographic issue already looming. The only difference being is that Japan is the main regional power along with China while South Korea is more the baby, Japan has much more international presence and weight. Japan has literally double the people and triple the GDP. If Korean is a worthwhile second-language then Japanese is only more so. Japan is so big it can stagnate forever and be relevant, Korea can't ever reach that level.

>French is the secondary language of business

fucking what lmao? Arguably French is still important sure but the secondary language of business in the current year, delusion.

Spanish is worthless for a European but I can see why Americans might be interested, although along your line of thought the entire Latin world is fucked and basically Africa level of relevance anyway.

I agree Mandarin is overrated but its not worth less than Korean.

Maybe its because I'm in Europe but German is no less used professionally than French, the English level of the German world is far overrated. Despite being cucked the German speaking world is probably the highest quality area in the world and is a literal economic monster, the language isn't going anywhere.

Nah you must be talking about the mainland Chinese.

Some of the Koreans could be a lil wierd but for the most part Koreans/HKers/Japs that came to uni here are doing so because they are interested in the west to an extent and therefore a decent enough. They tend to gather with other Asians sure but its only natural i though they are generally pretty decent.

Honestly actually some of the mainland Chinese were decent enough if you actually talk to them.
