Cunning linguist

Hi all

Thinking about learning a second european lingo. What would you recommend? So what would be most useful in the world of business next to English?

babelfish to Cunning linguist (#1)

If your question was serious, you'd be learning Chinese or Arabic already and wouldn't be looking to learn a second European language at all

Cynic to babelfish (#3)

As an experienced consultant, I have found it invaluable to be fluent in both English and Rubbish.

Agree to babelfish (#3)

Fully agree with the Arabic !

At my firm, Arabic language skills saved people from certain redundancy.

If you really were a cunning linguist then you would already know enough not to ask the question! Change your name at once you fake!

PS. I'd recommend Swahili and Welsh

First Dog Barney Bush to ... (#8)

lol, the bullshiit responses are funny.

I'd say chinese, arabic, spanish, french.

Dont worry about hindi, everyone speaks english in india anyway, and business will be conducted in english.

Linguist to First Dog Barney Bush (#9)

Follow the BRIC 'repositioning' that's bound to happen, but bear in mind that language skills are long term; if learn't properly...

Linguist? to Linguist (#10)

"long term; if learn't properly"

I do hope that was meant to be ironic.

pigdog to Anon (#12)

'consultantese' is an international language with a very small base vocabulary required to deliver all the permutations required eg just 'strategy, transformation, drive, value' can generate 'drive transformational value strategy, transform strategic value drivers, value transformation driver strategy' plus many more....
