    I was surprised to not find this asked before, but it interests me to know the diversity of languages spoken on this board.

    I speak English and German.

    My fluency in German is relatively good, though improvement is still needed.

    So what language(s) do you speak and how is your fluency?

    Most people would say that is a great idea, but the reality is that Chinese will likely not be the dominant language even though China may be a growing country.

    If you already know German rather well, continuing your education would likely serve you better than starting something new. But at the same time I see the sense in learning a little bit of another language. Learn as much as you can!
