If you could speak two languages, what would they be?

I wish I could speak Chinese and English then I would be able to communicate with half the world population, wouldn't I?

I'm hoping Japanese is gonna be more globally spoken in the future so the value of my first language will rise and hopefully become one of the languages the U.S. recognizes as official.

A single flow'r he sent me, since we met./All tenderly his messenger he chose;
Deep-hearted, pure, with scented dew still wet - One perfect rose.
I knew the language of the floweret;/'My fragile leaves,' it said, 'his heart enclose.'
Love long has taken for his amulet/One perfect rose.
Why is it no one ever sent me yet/One perfect limousine, do you suppose?
Ah no, it's always just my luck to get/One perfect rose.

Besides my first language, I speak Czech and English; I've been learning German and Spanish; I would like to speak Spanish fluently, I really like it.

I speak English and know some French, but I'd like to be able to speak French better and more fluently. To me, French is the best sounding language in the world.
