The Ethnologue catalogue of world languages, which is one of the credible linguistic resources, currently lists 6909 living languages leaving the variations and dialects of them aside. So, my question is is how many languages you can speak, write, and understand? The limits of your language are the limits of your world. So, it is always good to learn as many languages you can because they open every door along the way. If you have inspired from my words and decides to learn a foreign language then choose Spanish but why? Here are the reasons to learn spanish that would justify my bet on it.
It is practically impossible to crack the books of everything but you can certainly choose a few to learn. In fact, Bengalurians can speak and understand at least 5 languages from Kannada, Hindi, Telugu, to Tamil, and English. Language is the road map of a culture. It tells you where its people come from and where they are going.
