French vs. Spanish: Which This American Thinks Is Harder To Learn

Like any good comparative article, I'll present the pros and cons of why I think each language is harder than the other to learn. Now is a good time for me to write this, as my Spanish and French capabilities are about even (though Spanish is slowly overtaking French, due to more use). Obviously, this is from an American's point of view, so it will be loud and obnoxious, with as much ethnocentrism as possible, yet somehow still awesome. Enjoy.

TMax, tu parles toujours le français?

Bien, TMax est-ce que tu as perdu ton français pendant que tu as été en Espagne? Mais non! Grace aux années en Belgique, je pense que j'aurai besoin de plus que quelques mois sans français pour perdre tout! Et maintenant, pardonne-moi pendant que j'écris la reste de ce rédaction avec l'aide de Google traducteur!

J'ai appris le français à l'université, mais quand je suis arrivé en Belgique, je ne pouvais pas parler. Pourquoi? Parce qu'on apprend de la vocabulaire et de la grammaire, mais on n'apprend pas vraiment communiquer. En Belgique, j'ai appris plus pendant une année que pendant presque sept années à l'école. Maintenant, je parle français, mais le moyen Belge, comme je dis "septante" (70), et je demande "un essuie" après un bain, et je commande "une mitraillette" (un type de sandwich) quand j'ai faim.

16 Even More Random Things This American Has Noticed About Spain and Europe

First, I noticed 14 random things about Spain and Europe. That was like, whoa, Random City, population, me. Then, I noticed 21 more random things. I felt like arbitrary things were following me just so I could notice them. And, now, the whimsical bug has bit me once again, as I present 16 even more random things that I have observed, noticed, judged it to be random, wrote it down, organized it, and now I am sharing it with you. That's how the process works.
