There are a couple of differences between C and Java that immediately come to mind. None of them should make learning C any more difficult, though.
- Java does garbage collecting, C does not
- Java is Object-Oriented, C is not
- Generally, there is more abstracting in Java, I think.
- Consequently, though, C tends to do things faster.
