You may choose one language, which you will be able to speak, write, read, and understand with perfect fluency. Expect delivery of this ability next Tuesday at 2 P.M. EST.

I'd say Japanese just for the convenience of being able to stream anime and play video games without having to wait for localization/translation/dubbing.

Spanish makes the most sense for me, for job purposes. But I voted French because I plan on spending a lot of time all over Canada. Plus it's just a pretty language.

Gimme Irish any day.

Gallic is less pretty.

Of course, it'd be helpful to improve my French but LOL no sensible choices here.

Well I am learning Spanish right now, which is helpful to me in my area, but I much rather learn Japanese considering I want to go there XD

I'm surprised at the lack of love for Italian.

I chose Japanese because, in ascending order--

-Kanji calligraphy is almost as cool as Hanzi calligraphy.

-anime/manga

-Classic movies, poetry, and novels that are nearly impossible to get without intimate familiarity with the language.

-Japan is one of the world's largest markets for American fiction exports.

-Ain't no where better for ESL teachers than Japan.

I learnt Italian at school, that's why I didn't pick it.

 

It also might be for some people because it's not that useful a language worldwide; very few places speak it outside of Italy.

Japanese seems to be the best bang for the buck, I wouldn't pick one that I could more easily learn myself.

Japanese; I studied it for a while, it's a neat language and I really like Japan. Although the practical language to know would be French, seeing as I live in predominantly French speaking part of Canada.

Japanese. My friend is learning it so it would be cool if we learned enough to have conversations in Japanese XD

Russian, bro. Love the slav languages, the history and their cinema and literature aint half bad to boot. Plus I find the pronunciation really difficult so the freebie would be handy.

If I went for convenience for my job however, I would definitely have to say Punjabi.

I would rather learn Greek

I was debating between Greek, Latin, Korean, or Scottish/Gallic.

 

I ended up just clicking one.
