A question you should ask yourself when setting up a new Youtube channel. I’ve got my observations.
Should I start a YouTube channel in English or the native language?
I have got my experience because I am vlogging in Polish for five years. And then this is the tenth episode of my daily vlog.
While choosing, you have to consider the possible audience you will have. The English-speaking YouTubers community is much broader, choosing to vlog in English lets you direct your vlogs to a bigger audience.
The second thing to consider is the culture. I have got my first comment from a Polish viewer after one hundred episodes. And I have got my first comment from an English viewer after 2 episodes.
In my opinion, the English-speaking community is friendlier. I think vlogging in English has more advantages than disadvantages - especially if you do not look for a very specific niche.
