    I want to learn a language, but not sure which one. It is for something extra to put on the CV and also because why not.

    - French
    - German
    - Mandarin
    - Japanese

    I'm thinking one of the above but not sure, the latter two are harder but probably more useful....

    You could always go for Latin or Classical Greek. They are useful to learn.

    Not much use on a CV though TBH as noone speaks either. Interesting though, I know small pockets of Latin but it could be written on an envelope what I know :lol:

    Queens were really bland at Pukkelpop last year.

    Mandarin is apparently what people should be learning to make there way forward in today's business world... If I were learning another language it would be German.

    Actually many employers are impressed by people who learn/ have qualifications in Latin. It is a highly valued language. People in the Vatican and in a small village in Switzerland speak Latin!

    Having learned German, I have to say it isn't hugely useful outside of the three main German speaking countries. It comes in handy now and again, but basically the other languages are probably more useful. I hear Mandarin is hard, but I kind of want to learn it myself.

    That was on the list, but then I realised I never want to go to Russia.

    My GF is half German as well so there is added reason to learn that I suppose :lol:

    I'm considering the same thing next year through my uni. I've got a choice between French, German, Spanish, or Mandarin. I'm leaning towards German because I did GCSE.

    According to whom? It's only spoken by the Chinese, and all Chinese businessmen speak English.

    What if the business you are in relocates to the Vatican/ Switzerland? You'll be sorted then.

    I'm surprised they only offer three. French is nice and easy, so I am always tempted to learn that.
