What’s the Most Useful Second Language to Learn?

Does anyone who took French in high school actually use it?  And is Latin just a big waste of time?  Someone polled over 20,000 Americans and asked what the most useful second language is.  And the top choice by far was Spanish.

61% said Spanish.  And then way down the list in second place is Chinese or Mandarin with 5% of the vote.

French is third with 3%, and then German at 2%.

Latin only got 1% of the vote, along with Arabic, Hindi, Japanese, and Russian.

10% didn’t know or picked some other language.

And 1 in 7 Americans think English is the only language worth learning, and that ALL of those languages are a waste of time.
