French here. Being less than an hour away from the Canadian border, a lot of our "locals" speak French better than English.

French here too, because we are pretty close to France, but also spanish would be kind of useful. Now I have finished my masters I have been thinking of going to night school and perhaps studying french conversation. Though I was thinking more of the benefits of holidays in France rather than for work!

We are seeing more and more Eastern European people coming to Britian and so perhaps Polish or Romanian would be pretty helpful for many of my colleagues.

Cool Having to be practical

If we are being practical any of the following would be useful:
Vietnamese
Turkish
Italian
Greek
Russian/Masadonian
Mandarin

Due to the nature of European Immigration there is a large ethnic base. Some of the African languages would be useful too. But Vietnamese is probably the most common in this area. The issue is that we also have to learn the cultural aspects as well, like the practice of coining.

I already have Dutch under my belt (being born there) and of course ESL...but it would be wonderful to get some spanish in there, or french-even though we don't really encounter those languages as much as closer to Vancouver.
I think along with learning about people's cultures as we do in school, some languages would help too. To see the look on people's faces when they are confused as heck from the morphine and they are actually being understood for the first time...worthwhile and priceless
Merry Christmas!

I love Spanish and use it every single day that I work. I would love to learn Japanese.

I've heard of the Rosetta stone learning tools and may look into that. I should be learning more languages, I seem to have a knack for picking them up.
