Uh, again, that's a difficult one, but there have always been two that I've wanted to learn over others, the first one is Portuguese, and the second one is French.

And I think French would be the next one I would learn, simply because I think there is (are) more French speaking nations than Portuguese. Because I think Portuguese is just Portugal and Brazil, there might be some other places.

But you know, I've always loved French I think it's a very romantic language, I like the way it sounds, (the way) it feels, it comes off the tongue really nicely, you know, there's just something about it that is just very appealing.

So I think if the next language, I definitely plan on becoming bilingual, and I think French is definitely going to be the one that I'll choose first.
