It depends on how long you are traveling to these countrys, for example, if you are traveling to France next year for a while, you might want to learn french.

French is the third easiest language for native English speakers to learn, so I would suggest that you try learning French. Also, once you know French, other Romance languages like Spanish, Italian, Latin, even Romanian will all be easier to learn, since they are all connected. Hope this helps!

You should try to learn all of them, but focus on the one which you will be using the most. So learn French, German, Italian, and Greek. Good luck and have fun on your travels!

Do Italian. The culture there is rich and the structure of the language is most similar to the three others than French or Greek. I myself will begin learning Italian soon. Good luck on your trip next year! Here's three lingots!^_^

I personally am going for Polish and Ukrainian I picked it because of my heritage but hey you pick whatever you want to

I would recommend Italian. I randomly got started on it when a friend of mine started and raved about Duo. I love Italian because of how it sounds, and I personally find it easier to pronounce than some other languages, but that may because I know Latin.

My recommendation for Greek: Learn at least how to read the greek alphabet. This alone helps a lot.

As much as I'd be willing to list them, my flag order was destroyed by Duolingo. Check my profile for my languages in proper order.
