Is it easier to learn Korean after learning Chinese?

I´ve heard that about 60% of the Korean vocab is related to Chinese. I´m still in a early stage of learning Chinese, but within 3 or 4 months I want to start learning Korean. Will I mix them up? Will it be easier?

@brunort6 - I think that mixing up Korean and Japanese is a lot easier, as the pronunciation is more similar. Chinese will help if you’re more advanced and know lots of characters. I studied Chinese for about a year but didn’t know enough characters at that point for it to be really helpful in my Korean studies.

You may mix them up, but don’t worry about it too much. I remember Chinese coming out when I tried to speak French a few years ago :stuck_out_tongue:

Thanks, alex! I guess I´ll put more effort into Chinese before starting Korean, then. Maybe until the end of the year. After Chinese, my goal will be to learn Korean, and then move on to Japanese, but sometimes I wonder if the other way around wouldn´t be better.
