While it may seem that the Portuguese - the language is not very common, it is - the state language 200000000th growing Brazilian population. Brazil - a promising emerging market. Thanks to imperialism, Portuguese is the official language of a number of African countries, some of which in the long term can be to have a great market value (some of them already investing China).

Although Russia - not exactly growing economic superpower (because of its very slow population growth), there are a number of wealthy oligarchs who spend a lot of money abroad. I have friends who have earned a lot of money by selling the western Russian property, because they knew their language and understand how they do business. The first step in this direction - to speak in Russian, and it is a relatively easy language in comparison with some other on this list. Russian - popular language in a number of developing countries in the CIS and Eastern Europe. Where they speak in Russian? Russia, Belarus, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Ukraine, Kazakhstan, Moldova, the breakaway regions of Georgia; popular language in Armenia, Azerbaijan, Bulgaria, Finland, Latvia, Lithuania, Serbia, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan.
Spanish - it has long been popular in North America as a language to study in schools.

Some South American countries - have a growing market, and countries such as Paraguay and Ecuador offer cheap agricultural land for those who are looking for business opportunity or subsistence farming. And in the South, and Central America to live cheaply.

Arabic - the main language in many advanced countries, rich centers and frontier markets. The Middle East is becoming an important player in the world of finance and investment, and those who spoke in Arabic, will have an advantage in this closed market. Places such as Dubai and Abu Dhabi began developing international financial centers. In addition to the oil-rich countries, Arabic is also an official language in Iraq and most of the countries in North Africa.

It is no secret that China is implementing the invasion on the world market. Only 10 million Chinese speak in English - it is very small when compared with the 1, 4 billion people living in mainland China. Chinese influence has spread to Africa and not only, as the Chinese consumer needs for energy and other resources - which will require communication with Chinese buyers and investors. Chinese businessmen are pragmatic and have made great progress in learning English, but I think that as grow their purchasing power, they become more demanding. Someone who will speak their language, will definitely have a competitive advantage.
