If you had to learn a new language, which would you learn? Any particular reason?
Spanish. Just being practical with that answer. My high school French did me zero good living on the boarder of Mexico.

Spanish. Two reasons... 1. I love going to Mexico and I would love to be able to speak the language. 2. So many of my customers speak Spanish and I hate having to get an interpreter on the line.
French. I'm partially bilingual now, so I'd like to improve. Canada is bilingual so it would make sense. Second choice would be spanish, for travelling.

I would do Spanish also. Not only would it be super useful in the medical field, but my family on my Dad's side speaks it fluently except for my sisters and me. My Father was embarrassed about speaking it and refused to pass it down to us. He still to this day will not speak it, even though he does understand it. Unfortunate for us, because it would be a great advantage.
Je parle francais, aussi! I even had a scholarship. But I wasn't able to use the scholarship and ended up not taking French again. Now I remember next to nothing. C'est la vie!
Spanish for me. I have a bachelor's degree in Spanish. It does not really do much for me though because I moved to Indiana where I rarely get to use it. With a second language, it is either use it or lose it. Zumba helps me retain it. I can read it fairly well and I can understand about half of what I hear. I cannot speak as well as I could 15 years ago. Big bummer. I really need to brush up again. Maybe when my kids are older, I will be able to find a way to work on becoming more fluent.
