I like French but it's not much use outside of dodgy third world places, like France. I like German, but all the hot German chicks I ever met spoke English better than I did. Japanese is useful only in Japan. Chinese would be useful but it sure ain't sexy.

Spanish gets you Spain (=sexified) all of the America's apart from the cold bits where they speak English (apart from the Quebecois, but what they speak ISN'T french, and Brazil but hey) the Philipines, and some truly colourful bits of Africa.

And Spaniards and Latino's are teh hotness...

I, for one, welcome our Chinese Overlords, and look forward to the day that their country provides the world with everything that we ever need.

Seriously though, I do wish I'd learnt mandarin. Knowing some cantonese is great in select parts of China, but mandarin is where it's at for everywhere else :huh:

Indeed learning the various tongues of the new overlords is a wise choice, though as much as it pains me Wachy is correct in saying there is no better language for yelling than German

Spanish, South America rocks!

Spain aint bad either!

Actually, I've got to get my arse around to learning some Quechua (the forgotten language of the Inca) as most of the rural people in the areas we ride speak it before Spanish!

Mandarin has been useful, for work as well, again its a language you need to keep in touch with or you, will I do anyways, loose your fluency in it. I quickly gave up trying to learn the written form. :crazy:

I wish I could speak Maori - it's a such a nice sounding language and I'm proud to be a New Zealander. However I have the attention span of a lab rat on meth and the linguistic part of my brain seems to barely cope with English so I guess I'll just continue being mono-lingual :huh:

Maori, as a language, appeals as it has the same vowel sounds as Japanese. And I can roll my rrrrrr's like I was born in Gore :huh:
