Languages you wish to speak

I wish I could speak Cantonese.
I also wish to speak Japanese as I love Japanese cartoons and animes.
I also wish to speak Korean as I have many Korean friends.
I also wish to speak Russian so that I could understand when Anna curses in Russian.

Spanish and Italian because they are two places I will visit when I am older. I have a friend in Italy who I want to see and my friend in England is taking me on holiday with her in Barcelona soon. Plus they both sound very fluent and beautiful.

German - cause a lot of Science journals are written in it. It's only second to English. I also like Germany, Austria and Switzerland a lot.

I would actually learn a language that was meaningful to me in someway and if I was going to use it in my career/Travels.

Ones I know are German, Helvetic, English

Im learning Japanese at the moment through English.

In a few years I might consider spanish, because of it's international diversity and is spoken in alot of countries in different continents, ie: Spain, South America, Philipines etc and also because it is strongly related to Latin.

and if I want to get into Banking/Business I would learn another Asian Language particulary that of the Dialect of Mandarin, because it's the most populous language and that China is opening up to a free market, making great career oppitunities.

Languages that would be good to learn the bear necessities of would be Dutch, Italian, French.

Apart from my own language (Italian) I'm ok with English and Spanish which are without a doubt among the most widely spoken languages around the world... so now I'd like to learn a language that is spoken just in some smaller area, as Swedish, or Finnish, or maybe something very unusual, exotic... for the sake of speaking a language few people can speak
