I'd say the larger needles would be easier to learn on. With size 5s you could make a hat with sport or dk yarn. The ladders aren't always from knitting loosely, sometimes pulling the yarn tight when you switch needles will do that too. When you start knitting off a new needle on the left, work the first stitch, then pull the yarn and do the next stitch tight.
