What foreign language should I take in college?
I'm starting college in the fall and I'm a little stuck on which foreign language(s) to take classes in. I want to learn the ones that would be most useful in getting the types of jobs I want - something like a CIA intelligence analyst or a job in international relations. I'm trying to decide between Arabic, Spanish, French, and Russian. I'd really appreciate any advice or thoughts on which languages are the most useful nowadays.
