I think the down votes are because the link has been posted twice already: https://www.duolingo.com/comment/10680940 https://www.duolingo.com/comment/10694643

Anyway, great work with the site - very addictive! (In a good way)

I have never in my life believed anything the Washington Post has published, but still an interesting article. However, I draw different conclusions from it. There are a lot more factors to consider when choosing a language to learn.

What do you believe are the best languages to learn?

September 27, 2015


It's relative. Let's say you live in Germany and want to learn a language spoken a lot in your country. Turkish would be a good option, but it wouldn't be the same case in America. It all depends on why you want to learn a language then you have to go from there.

> The number of American students who learned a language other than English decreased by about 100,000 between 2009 and 2013

According to the Modern Language Association (MLA) "The study of enrollments in college foreign language classes found that 1.4 million students studied a language other than English, the highest number ever recorded and a 18 percent increase from 1998."
