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

Another Romantic language, this one is a little hard in the beginning but you will get used to it. You will master this language. - Pony
