I am a native English speaker and have learned Korean up to the beginner-intermediate level. I have also studied about the 100 most common Hanja. I know that Japanese is very similar grammatically to Korean, but I do struggle alot with the Korean grammar when I try to understand long sentences. However I read that Kango only makes up 18% of words in speech. But I have heard it is easier to learn to speak and listen in Japanese than Korean, which really appeals to me since I want to focus on speaking and listening before learning to read and write well I want to know if it easier to learn Chinese or Japanese after learning Korean? Do Japanese speakers learn Korean faster than Chinese speakers?
