For the life of me I can't decide which to learn first, Polish or Russian. I intend on learning both languages, I just don't know which would be the better language to start with. Would having a Russian base help me learn Polish faster than having a Polish base to learn Russian? I've posted a few threads already regarding Slavic languages and learned quite a bit, but that extra knowledge has also made the decision even harder. So I've come here again. If it's any help, I don't know any Slavic language already. The languages I speak are English, French, Portuguese, Arabic and German, I also know some basic Turkish and Farsi, like ask for the bathroom and some bad words lol. So I do have some understanding about different world languages and scripts, so the fact that Russian in Cyrillic doesn't bother or scare me at all. Like I said, I intend on learning both languages fairly well and just want to know in which order I should try and learn them and why you would suggest this order. I've decided to post this thread here, rather than the Polish and Russian boards for obvious reasons.
