I'm looking for a useful language to learn in the future.

I already speak english, finnish and swedish. I want to learn one/two more languages. Which one should I pick? Any language suggestions welcome, but if you have any insight about chinese vs japanese from a job/financial standpoint, please do tell.

Also, sorry if this is posted all the time.

Google the biggest trading partners of Finland. Those are the most important languages.

So German and Russian.

im learning python right now
super easy

>>1080448
I have actually been interested in studying German and Russian for a while. But at the moment I'm leaning a bit more toward Russian. Do you have any personal experience or opinion? Thanks.
>>
>>1080449
I have actually done some coding w. python a while ago, too.
>>
>>1080432
german
chinese
russian
spanish
portuguese

out of that list i would probably want to learn chinese first, but
>>1080448
is probably right w/ respect to where you live

Any French speaker here?
I'm studying it on my own, would love someone to chat with.
Nativeness not required
>>
>>1080453
I speak German. It was easy to learn because I already spoke Dutch. Knowing Swedish gives a big advantage as well.

German has quite a few rules but are fairly consistently applied so it's no big deal. It's harder than English and Swedish but easier than French.

Whatever language you pick, make sure you find enough ways to immerse yourself in it. Finding subtitled tv series and radio streams would be ideal.

And dont waste your time on internet tests.

>>1080463
Go to /int/. There are threads for that.
>>
>>1080468
Alright, thanks. I'll look into German a bit more then, and in the end I could choose both German and Russian.
>>
>>1080468
>easier than French
depends on what your native tongue is
in my native language lots of words are the exact opposite gender of those in german so it was a real mindfuck for me, but in french they're fairly similar (except for some small stuff like omelette, which to me sounds masculine but is feminine in french)

German has a fuckton of retarded rules. I suggest learning something more international, perhaps spanish.
>>
Here are your options imo:

>Chinese
>Arabic
>Farsi

If you want to be a trade pioneer in Iran there's Farsi. You want to do business in the Arab world or act as a liaison there? Arabic. You want to move into Asia? Chinese.

I can't tell you which future is best for you.
>>
>>1080432
Any business language or languages that your country trades a lot with.
Best to worst for a Finn/Scandinavian*:
German
Russian
Chinese
French
Japanese
Spanish
Korean

But learning east Asian languages are a lot more fun.

>*Finland is not in Scandinavia
>>
>>1080432
Chinese

Because china is #1
>>
>>1081998
As others said, Arabic is also a good language, top 3. More than just for businesses.
Strongly consider German though. As far as I know, very few people study German these days so there is a lack of German speakers to help businesses. Other languages are more popular, but Germany is and will be the biggest trade partner. Russian is also good, but I don't see them going anywhere but down.
>>
>>1082005
Alright, thanks for the reply. I was originally curious about Asian languages, which sparked my interest in learning Chinese, but German would be good too. Maybe I'll start both, but I just don't want it to take too much of my time.
>>
I speak Spanish, and somewhat write it. I use it on a daily basis at work. I live in California though so it has its use here. So as some people have said, check to see who is your biggest trading partner, but also see who the major minorities/immigrants are, also. If you can communicate with them you can do business with them.

>>1080432
Chinese and Spanish

You want to target the biggest audience to get the most opportunities.
