I am a Software Engineer by Profession.
Actually I don't know whether this is the right place to ask or not, but i am going for it.
I just started my career as a Software Engineer, and i am planning to learn 1 or 2 foreign languages(just for my interest, and if it will give some weight to my C.V it's of no harm).
I was thinking of these three:-
1.Russian

2.German

3.French or Italian

I just wanted to know which of them will be better and which has more Scopes(scope here doesn't mean that i am going to be a linguist, i will be in IT sector only because i am loving it).

Thanking You All.

I moved the topic to a better suitable forum for you.

It depends on what you wish to achieve. For e.g. If you are working for a French company, being proficient in French will be an obvious advantage.
If it is purely for a personal reason, I would suggest go for the language which you find easier to learn.

So you are planning to learn a language and then target companies from that country for jobs?
OR
You have short listed down the countries and trying to figure out which company to learn?
OR
It doesn't matter as long as you get a job outside India?

In two of the organizations I've worked for in the past, there was ( and I guess there still is ) a good demand for people who knew Chinese and English. I remember reading somewhere that Chinese have many alphabets and Chinese is one of the most difficult languages to learn. So I never even considered it.

If the choice was based on interest, I'd love to learn Italian any day. The reason behind this interest is a very nice italian colleague, I've worked with in the past. His emails would be studded with 'grazie', 'prego', and a few more Italian words that I don't remember now.

@manish Sir :: Actually i am interested in learning foreign language as well as I am planning to move outside india in 2-3 years.

So you can say the first option is somewhat more suitable.
and somewhat third one too...
