Hello, I'm getting my B.S. in Physics at a liberal arts college. One of my graduation requirements is two semesters of a foreign language. I wanted some advice about what languages are particularly useful to career physicists. Here are some ideas I've had. Latin- useful for science terminology Greek- useful for learning the Greek alphabet Chinese or Japanese- useful for overseas collaborations French or German- also useful for over overseas collaborations, also useful for reading original historic papers. I've also considered the philosophical aspects of learning a second language. Languages shape people's notions about how objects interact in time and space. In this case I would prefer a language very different from English, like Arabic or Chinese. Any thoughts? Thank you.
