BusinessInsider.com republished a Quora piece from Sanda Golcea, highlighting the most useful languages for English speakers. From the piece:
"Of course, when you learn a new language, your point is to reach to the biggest amount of people that language can offer for you. You probably want the language to be the most useful language when you trave. And languages used by mega international worldwide organizations are good ones to take into consideration.
"If you only speak English and this is going to be your first foreign language, then you want an relatively easy language to learn.
"You don't want to take years and years learning how to read all over again. You want a language that will empower you and a language that will be easy to learn and master to fluency.
"Because if you're not fluent in the language after years and years of study, it's not going to be very useful."
