The Telegraph has covered what are the 10 best languages to study and you can read the article here. The results are based on answers from UK businesses when asked what languages are most important to them, so the following list is based on real business examples rather than academic research.

The results quoted in the Telegraph are:

  1. German,

  2. French,

  3. Spanish,

  4. Mandarin,

  5. Polish,

  6. Arabic,

  7. Cantonese,

  8. Russian,

  9. Japanese,

  10. Brazilian Portuguese.

We don't think there are any surprises in this top 10 list coming from UK businesses. Germany has been the strongest economy in Europe for some time now and French has been high on the list for years, so no surprise there.
