    Hey there!
    Quick question for you. I already know Italian (mother-tongue) and fluent english.
    As part of my second year (undergraduate) I have to learn a new European language. Choices are: French, German and Spanish.
    As I don't really like German, I won't do it.
    Which one do you think would be most useful between French and Spanish for finance-related jobs (not only IBD, but mainly)?
    MY REASONS FOR SPANISH:
    - It's cool and easy;
    - It's the second most spoken language in the world.
    MY REASONS FOR FRENCH:
    - I already know basic french;
    - Maybe more jobs in Paris after Brexit?;
    - France/Canada is cooler than Spain/South America.
    I plan to reach a fluent level (for business).
    Of course, my job prospects are mainly in Europe (even if I wouldn't mind working in the US or other continents)
    I know it won't be that important, but I would like to choose wisely!

    Thank you very much!
