Hi! So far I have only been learning Germanic and Romance languages, but I would like to also start studying Slavic languages.
My question now is: Which is the best Slavic language to start with, if you have a background of Germanic (English, German, Dutch etc.) and/or Romance (French, Spanish and so on) languages?
I do not only refer to the alphabet - Latin (Polish, Czech, Slowak, Croatian, …) versus Cyrillic (Russian, Ukrainian, Bulgarian,…), but also to grammar (not too many difficulties and exceptions with conjugation and declination) and to vocabulary (good basis to understand and learn other Slavic languages).
I read somewhere that for that purpose the Slowak language was the best and Polish the most difficult? Can you confirm that or do you have another opinion?
Thank you very much in advance for your input.
