Hi, I've been seriously thinking about learning a language and then taking it as a GCSE for a while now.
1st reason why is to gain extra GCSE's and the 2nd reason why is that it just sounds interesting. I first wanted to take Bulgarian as a GCSE as at the time, I was planning to study abroad. But then realised no exam board does Bulgarian GCSE. So after looking at all the exam boards language options, Italian and Japanese stood out to me.
I'm interested in Japanese, as the Japanese culture and language interests me, but the only thing that worries me is that it does seem like a tough language to learn.
I'm interested in Italian, because it's a place that I would love to travel to in the future or maybe even move their one day (but probably not).
So I was mainly wondering which language choice is easier to learn, also since i'm a complete newbie to languages (well except to Spanish, which to be honest I never paid attention too) what do you think would be best for me.
I would most likely take the exam next year, so I have a lot of time to study it.

Italian would definitely be easier for an English speaker because it's much more similar than Japanese but if you're interested in Japanese and willing to put the time into it I'm sure you can do well at that as well!
