The army taught me fluent french (Defense Language Institute, and SF Language School).  I'll only use it for my international business activities though... or, better, for picking up chicks...

IMO Portuguese is definitely the sexiest of the Romance languages.

I haven't had too much exposure to it. To me it sounds like someone got lazy about pronouncing their spanish or their italian lol ... but maybe that will change once I learn it.

I speak Spanish fluently. Does anyone know if there is a lot of demand for attorney's in business law-especially with companies in the US/Latin America?  I know that being bilingual in English/Spanish probably isn't that special anymore.  What about immigration law maybe?

hi,

I will be applying this fall. i can speak 5 languages and am very interested in international law myself since I was raised abroad.  I hope i can get into American WCL to do the 2 years at American - 2Years in Paris dual degree like the one in Spain.

btw, o portugues e a lingua romance a mais bela!

portuguese is the most beautiful sounding romance language!

Portuguese only sounds good coming from Brazilians.  People from Portugal sound angry and speak like they have rocks in their mouths. 

Personally, I'm partial to the Germanic languages.

I'm a Spanish/English speaker, and would LOVE to learn Portuguese- it's the next language on my list. A friend from college was half Brazilian and half Colombian, spoke both languages fluently and always said that Portuguese is like Spanish with a potato in your mouth.  ;D
