Five languages? I'd be happy with three. On top of English, Russian and Spanish would be nice because they're widely spoken by beautiful women.

If I could really learn five, I'd learn French and Wu. I've heard the Shanghai chicks are meant to be insane.

English - #1 world language by far, and will remain that way for a LONG LONG time
Spanish - Useful language widely spoken
Korean - I like Korean chicks and being famous in Korea as a foreigner is as simple as simply speaking Korean
Russian - Useful language for understanding the propaganda war West v East
Chinese - Business language for cheap at source prices

English

Russian

Arabic

French doesn't make my top 5 because the places it is spoken have English equivalents e.g. In west Africa; Ghana and Nigeria (biggest economy, Lagos; biggest city) people speak English. Europe and Canada have the same situation.

Speak English, mandarin and cantonese already. Learning Russian at the moment.

After Russian I would like to get Arabic and Spanish and perhaps Turkish under my belt because of their usefulness.

RE: If you could be fluent in only 5 languages (including Eng.) which would you choose?
Since I'm now based in SEA and never plan to leave my list would be something like:

English
Thai
Tagalong
Vietnamese (or whatever language would help me in Vietnam most)
Cambodian (whatever language would be most useful there)

Right now I'm native level at English and Polish, intermediate in Thai and French with a tiny bit of German and Spanish.

English, Mandarin, Spanish, French, Russian

Why would anyone choose Cantonese? Everyone who speaks it also speaks Mandarin (in Guangdong Province and Macau) and/or English (Hong Kong and overseas Chinese).

RE: If you could be fluent in only 5 languages (including Eng.) which would you choose?
English: Native
Japanese: Fluent
Russian: Has always appealed to me
Chinese: might as well fill out that section of the world

Gothic: An extinct language [ https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gothic_language ] mostly for the novelty, not much thought was put into the last one but if given the choice I would like to have a dead language at my disposal.

Those would be my 5

RE: If you could be fluent in only 5 languages (including Eng.) which would you choose?
Honestly the only reason i'd become fluent in a local language is really to show off to the locals (mostly women). but i agree with being happy in 3 languages; actually already know 3 but not quite fluent.

1 - English
2 - Japanese
3 - Thai
4 - Arabic (for business reasons)
5 - Portugese (for Brazil)
.

The only time success comes before work is in the dictionary.

You could access to most of the worlds women with 4:

English
Spanish
Russian
Chinese

The tough one to choose is the fifth and comes down to preference. I would go with french because it unlocks a bunch of Africa. Love those big booties.

Spanish for the Chicas
Mandarin? Business in China.
Japanese - life long interest

But I'd have to travel to Brazil and the FSU to pick one of those.

RE: If you could be fluent in only (including Eng.) which would you choose?
I speak English , French and Spanish and that's enough, I don't really have any desire to learn others but would consider Portuguese if a work opportunity in the oil biz came up somewhere like Brazil or Angola. Don't forget guys as the old saying goes, with languages: If you don't use it, you'll lose it. Ten years ago my French was at near native level (BA in French and certified bilingual by the Canadian government), I was going to school all day in French then working at a bilingual call centre at night, people on the phone knew I wasn't Quebecois but many assumed I was French African, which I though was hilarious. Then I moved out west and stopped speaking French on a regular basis, I can still hold a conversation but I'm always searching for words and my vocabulary is simple. Also, I often mix up French and Spanish, the worst is when I meet a French person in Colombia and switch between the two its a big mess but if their Spanish is decent then they understand.

God damned them all, I was told we'd cruise the seas for American gold, we'd fire no guns-shed no tears, now I'm a broken man on a Halifax pier, the last of Barrett's privateers!

1. English = language of the world.

2. German = most spoken native language in Europe and an esteemed language of science and literature.

3. Russian = language of the most beautiful women.

4. Spanish or French or Italian = language that sounds beautiful to speak.

5. Mandarin = language that sounds disgusting to my ears, nor am I particularly fond of the culture but I suppose this language would be very useful for business purposes.
