    That depends, what do you want to do? Do you want to live in Japan? Learn Japanese. Do you want to live in China? Learn Chinese (Mandarin, Cantonese, etc...). If you are not serious about living in Japan, or China, but want to play Japanese games, or be able to read manga, or understand anime, then learn Japanese. If you do not care much about just learning Japanese for manga or anime, but want to learn Chinese because of your heritage, then learn Chinese. If you want everything, give priority to one, study it, then, once you are finished with it, start with the other one; unless you can study both (at the same time) with no problems.

    It's not useful or not easy to learn?

    It's pretty easy to learn how to read. It's just another romantic language after all.

    I'm just saying that it's disrespectful to the culture.

    Depends, are you planning on living somewhere in Latin America, or Spain? Are you intending on working on business relationships with Spanish speaking countries? Are you planning on giving it any good use, at all? If you just want to learn a new language, there are tons of good languages, which are more useful than Spanish.

    Reading it may be easy, but writing it is not. Grammar is not easy, and Orthography is quite hard. Then again, I was never (and I still am not) really good at Spanish.

    Anyways, if you really want to study it, then give it your best. Not many non-native Spanish speakers talk/write it properly.

    I am also a Chinese and can not speak mandarin ( the China Republic national languages ). So that means i must go to measure my own coffin's size right away.... ?
    But i can speak Hakka and Teo Chiu, Just for u know Chinese dialect consist of more that hundreds of sub languages. And Mandarins is just another one from that sub-languages...

    Learn Chinese if u can.... Chinese is on the lead nowadays, some expected that in economy they will soon overthrow Germany and Japan.... If u want to learn it, learn ASAP cause in my own experience. Learning Chinese is difficult if u're already 20+ years old T_T.

    I suppose the people who said to learn spanish live in the US. Considering that, it is a useful language to learn if they do live in the US.

    Spanish is very useful for Americans in general.

    I'm Chinese and sort of speak Mandarin but I do speak Cantonese..
    I think you should learn Japanese because it's not "that" hard to learn Mandarin if you're a Cantonese speaker.. Not saying it's easy.. But it's just not that hard..

    Why can't you can take both? I assume you're going to college so you can take one in high school and the other in college. But it also depends on how good your school's program is..my friends took 3 years of mandarin in high school and learned nothing. So um maybe you could save the more important one for college? =]
