Deutsch, naturlich! Da ich schon Deutsch sprechen und Deutsch verwendet die zweite Sprache der Wissenschaft zu sein, sollten alle Menschen Deutsch sprechen.

Mandarin ... I'm so very impressed you didn't say Chinese.

In the US, the most useful second language to learn is Spanish. That way, you would understand the instructions in both languages.

After the international language which is English, Spanish is one of the most used language in the world, we have so many Spanish regions and they are so in use.

In order Spanish, French, German, before all, i'll attend for Italian! Loves it!

I offer a different take:

The language of mathematics is universal and probably the Most Useful of all. It is certainly the most pervasive. 

Any of the languages you list are great choices to learn. Che mondo meraviglioso sarebbe se più persone parlano più lingue.

The choice depends on where you live and whether you plan to travel. Spanish has a lot of appeal but I'd never get to use it. In my neck of the woods I'd probably opt for German.

I recently downloaded an app to learn how to read and write Cyrillic and, inevitably, I'm picking up a few Russian words with it. Not the same as actually learning the language, but fun to do.

I'd go with French! I speak Spanish pretty well and know a little German, and though I understand French fairly well, I can't speak it as fluently as I'd like to. I've wanted to really learn Mandarin (I want to go to China!), but I gave up at some point.

In my opinion the most useful and spoken language after English is Spanish. It is also a native language of more than 400 million people in 44 countries which makes it one of the most preferred language to learn.

When you think about learning a language then you must be clear about the purpose of learning a language. Consider yourself and your future plans after that decide which language is required by you and your goals. If you are looking to start a new business then identify the area where you want to spread it and then learn accordingly. If you love travelling then you have to more than one language according to the place you want to visit.

So, when we consider the research results then Spanish is the most useful language to learn otherwise it all depends on your goals and needs. For leaning Spanish grammar must read the English Grammar for Students of Spanish by The Olivia and Press. It's a wonderful book!

It depends on the purpose you are going to learn that. If you need it for business - check the market and the top companies in your field of work. If you are going to travel or go to the current country - choose the language you'd like to know there. Here is a recommendation for you - read more in this article.
