    Dear Friends,


    Am planning to learn a Foreign language. Actually it is my long time

    dream. Which language is very sweet to talk out of Spanish, French and

    German? What could be the fees? How many levels are there? Will I get a

    job based on that. Where are all the places I can work? Can anyone help me.

    Hi,

    I'm no expert on this but I'll just list down whatever I know.

    You could contact Alliance Francaise with your queries on French. They offer French lessons for all levels of learners and they would be able to better assist you with your specific doubts. Or check out their website.

    Since you live in Bangalore, here is the link to their Bangalore website - Home|Alliance Franaise de Bangalore

    For German lessons, you could check out the Max Mueller Institute. Here is the Bang link - Bangalore - Welcome to the Goethe-Institut in Bangalore-Goethe-Institut

    I hope this helps. Learning any new language is always a wonderful experience. Good luck with your study! :thumbsup

    Divs

    German is very difficult especially the grammar.
    I am having a funny link about learning german:
    Nothing For Ungood Blog Archive Don’t learn German

    I had french at school and it is manageable. Don't know much about spain but sounds lovely.

    I am currently taking up proficiency exams in French(equivalent to TOEFL in English). Another 2 weeks to go:drowning. Not very hard for me as I already know to converse in French and can read well too.
    I am guessing that Spanish is the sweetest of the lot. If there are some proficiency exams in that,you can take it up. If you are in India, I think you can try for translator type of jobs or if you are in IT, then I know some companies recruit based on Foreign language skills. But, for all these oppurtunuties, you wil need to cross atleast 2-3 levels.
    If you learn French,then Allainse Francais is a good bet. You can travel and work in FRance and other French speaking countries like Canada. You can apply to French universities too,if you clear their exams.

    Choosing the language depends on your interest too. Do not start to learn a subject only because of career prospects. It gets hard to master it if we have aims like these in mind. JMO.

    Good Luck,
    Let me know if you need any info in French.
