As I'm working with a couple of Catholic Non-Profit Organizations in US, the language I really "need" to learn is Spanish, as more and more Spanish speaking American Catholics are on the rise.  It is definitely a necessity and I know it; It would definitely be great for me to master Spanish, so I can be of a help in making pamphlets or in translation at organizational conferences. 

My high school had French, Latin and Spanish as a choice for foreign language course. Michigan historically has higher population of French American thus French was always available choice, Latin, tho it's technically a dead language, it is used in academia thus certain popularity among students remained, and Spanish emerging necessity as Hispanic population started to grow.  I took Latin, as I saw merit in learning which would be in future scientific field I would major in. 

Anyways, I see more necessity in learning Spsnish at this time of my life, but what I truly love is Italian language. I wanna be able to master Italian language so someday I could do pilgrimage trip to Assisi, Italy one day; A homeland of my baptismal Saint, St. Francis of Assisi.
