    The best language to learn is Afrikaans from South Africa. It is a hybrid of European languages including English, French, Dutch and German. You could esily learn a lot of those other languages with your primary language in mind, as they do not variate that much from the language posture - the spine of the person language wise.

    The second best language to learn is French, as due to the location of France they spoke a lot with the English and thier neighbours, all powerful countries and have spread thier languages far and wide. It is spoken in North America, North Africa and the far flung islands near to New Zealand and the Philipines... around there.

    Afrikaans is similar to French so they will have a good foundation for learning all the languages of the world. Afrikaans is also very easy to learn as it was thrown together for the natives to learn as well, so is probably the second youngest language. The newest language is not spoken enough to practice though, so teach your children Afrikaans. You can pick it up at bhyki language centre on the web for a small amount.

    It isn't really. We do have a few French derived words though. There were quite a few French huguenots that got assimilated into Afrikaner culture.
