So I might want to learn a new language. Which should I learn and why? Practical reasons please. How hard is it to learn French compared to other languages? A few people I know might be learning it soon and I am wondering if I should give it a try. It's either that or Spanish, which is definitely a more popular language in the US, which is one good reason to learn it. So, which makes more sense to learn? I don't have any pressing need to learn either but I do want to know more than one language eventually. I figure why wait.
