Just came across this very interesting slide show (Daily Telegraph) about the 10 best languages to study.
And who would have thought that the number 1 language is… (ta ta) German. But… “Why?”, you wonder? The slide states that “Germany remains the largest single export market for British goods outside o fht UA, and Europe’s largest economy – with a GDP of more than Euros 2.4 trillion – continues to defy the eurozone downturn. So it’s no surprise that UK companies want to hire employees who know their umlauts form their eszetts.”
