I'd choose Chinese or Japanese. I'd love to speak one of them one day but (I wish it was different) I don't think I have enough determination to learn a language where each word has its own symbol.

yes, Chinese is very useful!

I would speak Italian

Man oh man, I think about this all the time. Some days I say Spanish and then I would confidently test for becoming a translator. Other days I would say French, because I try to speak in French to my children, and certain bilingual friends, and this never fails to brighten my mood - it's like some weird sonic auto-induced euphoria. And sometimes I would choose something esoteric - Ukrainian, Hindi, Thai, or any number of other languages that deeply interest me, but would be a head-ache to actually pursue.

Here's a twist on your offer, Winnie. What if you could choose instant fluency in a language, but only by diminishing fluency in your native tongue? Would you make that sacrifice?

It is really hard to pick one, but I would go with Korean or Chinese. I really love the korean language, and also I love watching Kdramas. Chinese is really useful to so either of those probably (:
