If you've ever wanted to learn a second language, consider trying to learn one of the more popular ones first. What foreign language should I learn? Want to speak the language of love? Time to learn French! Spanish can be extremely useful, as can Japanese (though the latter is decidedly more difficult to learn to speak and/or write).

Whether using the best language learning software or a language immersion course, learning some languages can be more challenging than others. Arabic, for example, might be more challenging for a native English-speaker than, say, Italian, but it's also among the more popular studied foreign languages worldwide. And while Mandarin Chinese might seem really difficult to learn, it's spoken by more people across the world than any other language.
