1. Can you speak another language?
I am Dutch, but I can speak English very well. At work I speak German and French, at least well enough to properly have a work related conversation. I speak a bit of basic Spanish too.

2. If you could learn any other language you haven't learned yet, what would it be and why?
I've lived in China and I'd love to learn Mandarin and Cantonese. Part of the reason is that learning a new language gives me the ability to 'think more broadly', because of different words, different degrees of subtlety, different proverbs and such things. I think that learning a language completely different from the ones I know will broaden my mind even further. Another reason is that I'd just love to be able to understand it for traveling and movies :)
