Hello and welcome to the forums,

I suspect you already know 2. . . Your native language and some amount of English (i believe your vocabulary is more than sufficient, but the grammar could use some work).

What do you consider a foreign language? Where do you intend to work/live?

Hello,

If you know which client/locale you intend to work with, i'd suggest learning the language most spoken at that location. For example, learning Portugese when planning to work in Tokyo may not help - learning Japanese could help. And so on.

Being able to communicate with other people in your new office is quite important.
