English, is the best foreign language that every computer science engineer should learn.

yea english is most important of all languages but students go for languages like german, french etc!
which 1 is most productive of all!
@ISHAN TOPRE • 26 Dec, 2011 Spanish. It is spoken in many countries. 😀

Also it depends on your interest. For example I think a mechanical engineer should learn either German or a European language.
@surbhi bakshi • 26 Dec, 2011 as i mentioned i'm a computer science student, and best in job prospects in my field. plus, no particular interest YET in any particular language!😉

Well, there is no ONE language and there will always be arguments for and against the foreign language one should learn. But the main problem with learning a language is that one must keep on practicing it else it's forgotten easily. I'd strongly recommend learning any language of your choice which you think you should learn. Don't connect it to employment. Because it will take away the whole happiness in learning a new language.
@ISHAN TOPRE • 26 Dec, 2011 • 2 likes One more thing, if you want to learn a foreign language, then learn its basics and watch related Youtube videos, movies in that language or informative videos related to your interest. It is the best way that you will develop interest in your chosen language.

Being a computer science student & learning foreign languages are not really related things.
As a CS Student, you should concentrate on languages like PHP, Java, Python, C# etc..

Learning Foreign Languages is completely a personal choice.
@manishks • 26 Dec, 2011 let it be any language...but english is one global languge..english is spoken in silicon valley...in banglore..in europe......every cse student should learn english..
@Pensu • 26 Dec, 2011 It doesnt matter what you choose, you are gonna learn it for a semester, get a good grade, and then you will forget it. So, talk to your seniors and choose the easiest one.....😉
@Dancer_Engineer • 26 Dec, 2011 English please, with proper grammar and punctuation! 👍

There are many foreign languages you can chose from.
If you are looking at it from placement point of view, then find out companies that come for recruitment in your college and see the demand of foreign languages in these companies.

Some companies do have a foreign language as a criteria to be eligible for the placement procedure.

So find out from your seniors or TPO about the companies.

French... Relatively easy!!! 😀
@Gandalf • 26 Dec, 2011 • 1 like It's my view
English is enough with programming expertise in any of a particular domain
ASP.NET , Oracle 10g or later , PhP and other languages is enough

People can communicate using these even if they do not know a local language for starters
They can work in a team successfully
@Ankita Katdare • 25 Oct, 2015 • 1 like I see that a lot of students are landing up here by searching for the same question - best foreign language for computer science engineers. Well, the question has been well answered here, but here are my two cents after all these years of experience.
Learn a foreign language because you want to. The best years are when you are still in school or college. As, you will have considerable amount of time to cover all the basics and practice. By the time you graduate, you have at least 1 or 2 certifications in that particular language.
Now, since you can highlight that part on your resume, you will have something that not all your fellow candidates have when you apply for a job.

Since the whole point of this discussion, is fetching a good job that goes along with your programming skills and the foreign language, above is the best course of action you can take.

Do understand that, when you apply to MNCs, you will have a chance to select a project whose client are in a foreign country (and if you know their language, chances of you getting selected there will be much higher.)

Alternatively, when you dedicate 1-2 years of your study time to a particular foreign language, searching jobs that are related to it with your technical background become much easy. I know a lot of people who are engineers be degree, but didnt have a job, and upon learning the foreign language got placed in Google and Amazon with really great salary packages.

Sky is the limit for the opportunities that come knocking at your door if you learn a new thing religiously and can exhibit proficiency in it.
