Top Ten Languages That You Should Learn


The Top Ten

1 Spanish

I live in the US and learned spanish in school. I can totally see how useful it is to some people, although it has been nearly useless to me personally, since the majority of the people I interact with are actually Chinese or Indian language speaking. Learning Chinese would have been a better choice in my situation, but given the amount of Spanish speakers in the US and in the world, I can see how useful it is. - UncleDolan

It's a amazingly useful language to learn. Especially if you live in the U.S. there language is also very fun to speak.

I like to learn Spanish

Easy to learn since my parents speak it. - Pegasister12

For the beauty of the language and it's utility. After all it's the most influential language after English since English replaced French as the lingua franca. In fact French is not harder, it's more a stereotype, and learn French is always impressive. - lili117

I speak English. Always have and always will, and yes I know its fairly hard for people to learn but it's a good language. It's a useful language, a powerful language, and the(Or similar) letters are used in multiple different languages including Russian.

Duh most the world speaks this

Almost Evertonyone knows English. But if you don't, it's not very hard to speak. Like I am, say these words. Sun,board magazine,seat. And lots of other things. If you have a library,and there is a country section, try to find a English language book and you'll find lots of words. I think there is lots of words. Maybe over a million words!
