Linux Shell syntax


Does anybody know any Linux shell with a syntax similar to C/C++/JAVA instead of bash? Because I find the syntax of bash very difficult

CSH and TCSH are supposed to have syntax similar to C.

I'm no expert, but I'm trying to picture how C++ or Java would be easy, and BASH would be difficult. I would also think that any of the various Linux shells would have similar complexity.

My pea brain says learn the most common languages first, because it gives you access to the largest support base in forums such as LQ.

It's a matter of taste dude.. If you like bash and you find it easy this is fine.. But if you can find something that you like more and you find it easier then stick out with it..
