You should learn Spanish since that's what the national language is gonna be in like 5 years :P I'm thinking of double minoring in art/Spanish. This should probably be in the student campus forum.

Your profile states you are from the United States. If that's so then Spanish might be of interest given the growing influence of Mexican-Americans. What other languages does your university offer?

Pretty much anyone you could like. To be honest I really do not want to learn Spanish. I have taken classes and just do not like the language. I figure when it really becomes a problem I will learn it. Good thing my aunt knows it.

Deutsche. That way, you can compliment people AND scare them...at the same time! :P Jk, Germans don't always sound angry. But the language sounds cool to me. I started to learn it but never stuck with it. Auf wiedersehen, mein komeraden.

choose foreign languages which help you in hard economic times as it will help with job finding and other stuff. Word of warnig: avoid most asian languages because they are least closest to the english alphabet so more hard work is needed

I think you should really take the advice
of learning Spanish, I live in Texas, and
I'm from Mexico, and knowing Spanish
has helped me endlessly from cursing
out teachers without their knowledge to
getting a job over an other server cause
i know Spanish and they don't.

In the US you should know Spanish and
English to exhale.

If you really don't like Spanish, I'd probably
say Persian, or some sort of Arabic language.

If you are going to be doing a lot of business, or live in NYC, then Mandarin. I want to learn it soooo bad, but it doesn't really have any application to me. Maybe after I already have at least a bachelors in Spanish I might go to school and learn it. :\
