I am currently learning chinese because I think for the future it will be a very good language to be able to speak fluently.
However I also would like to learn another one which would be useful for the future. Are there any that you think would be very advantageous to learn?
Ideas are appreciated!

I would say Korean, Japanese, Russian and Chinese.


But the most importantly one would be English, some many people cant even speak standard English- I am one of them.

Latin. Perverse choice you may say -- not very useful for the future -- but you'd be wrong. :p: Around 60% of English words come from Latin, and so the language will help to give a better grasp of your native tongue. (You can guess [often correctly] at big words, whilst learning the roots of common ones.) Moreover, the statistic is roughly the same for most European languages (which are of course spoken the world over, not just in Europe) and so no language could be more useful, in my opinion, than Latin!

The Queen can't even speak the Queen's English any more. Though I can. :p:

Yes, as I can remember her saying that she was down with her homies.

I don't understand it as of yet. But I'm going to learn it when I get to university, along with Ancient Greek.

And about the Queen: she'd have never have said that, you must have misheard her. She probably said, 'I'm down with my Corgis', or something.
