Two Foreign Languages Every American Man Should Learn
There is no stopping the rapid degradation of the USA, both with its economy and women. In short time a large portion of the male population will be unable to find a good job or a good woman, despite their best efforts. The smarter ones will pull the eject lever and parachute down to a foreign land where more professional and sexual opportunities can be found.
As Iâ€™ve written here many times before, you canâ€™t expect to arrive in a foreign country and make it rain with only speaking in English. I canâ€™t say anything about the level of fluency youâ€™ll need for establishing a foreign career, but with sex you need basic knowledge of the local language, especially outside of Europe.
Having to learn a new language for every country you go to is impractical, so you want to get some bang for your buck. The language you choose to learn should have the following benefits:
be spoken by a large percentage of the world population
be a stepping stone to other desirable languages
be spoken in countries with beautiful women
The two languages that best fit the above requirements are Spanish and Russian.
Being able to speak Spanish is as close youâ€™ll get to having a superpower: there are 20 countries that speak it, homes to the biggest bootied women in the world. An added bonus is that Spanish is very close to Portuguese, unlocking three additional countries for rape and pillage (Brazil, Portugal, and Angola). If youâ€™re conversational in Spanish, it will only take you a couple months of intensive study to achieve the same in Portuguese as well. Both of these languages also give you a running start for the other Romance languages: Romanian, Catalan, French, and Italian.
Spanish is hands-down the easiest language for English speakers to learn. Attempting it as your first foreign language is worth your time because you have to learn how to learn a language, as strange as that may sound. In your Spanish studies youâ€™ll develop tighter language habits that help you for much harder Russian.
Russian is the language spoken by the most feminine women left on the planet. Unfortunately, itâ€™s hard as balls. Besides the cyrillic alphabet, you have noun cases, gendered verbs and nouns, comparative adjectives, difficult pronunciations, and all sorts of other crazy shit you donâ€™t see in English. However, learning it will open up a whole new world of Former Soviet Union (FSU) p***y, such as Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Ukraine, Turkmenistan, and Uzbekistan. You probably know nothing of these countries, but guess what: neither do most of your countrymen. There are no cheap RyanAir or EasyJet flights. There are no stag parties. There are no Australians getting drunk in hostels. These are pristine but challenging places that have women you canâ€™t find anywhere else.
As an added bonus, Russian is similar to Bulgarian, Serbo-Croatian, and to a lesser extent, Polish and Czech. Russian will give you the grammatical foundation to more easily learn these other tough languages. Youâ€™ll be shocked at how far you can get with a language such as Russian from studying only one hour a day. As for Spanish, studying one hour a day for three months will enable you to start having real conversations.
My advice to you is to learn Spanish first. Make it a project for the next 2-3 years. Take 1 or 2 trips a year to Latin America and work on your world game. Dabble a little in Portuguese and Brazilian poonani. If youâ€™re content with Latin women then carve out a niche while seeking employment opportunities that are sure to open up with your increasing fluency. When youâ€™re ready for something new and even more challenging, Russian and the former Soviet Union awaits you.
Recommended Resources For Learning Spanish
Pimsleur Spanish (Units 1-3) â€“ three units of Pimsleur give a great language foundation
Madrigalâ€™s Magic Key To Spanish â€“ intuitive, easy approach
Spanish Verb Tenses Activity Book â€“ a million exercises that drill Spanish verbs into your brain

Recommended Resources For Leaning Russian
Pimsleur Russian (Units 1-3)
New Penguin Russian Course â€“ the best Russian textbook (not like thereâ€™s a lot of choice anyway)
RussianPod101 â€“ tons of downloadable audio programs, fairly priced
Again, start with Spanish first. Success there will give you the confidence that youâ€™ll need to tackle Russian.

Pah, what do those alphas know? Learn Mandarin Chinese and you can date goddesses of women.
colombia, venezuela, argetina, spain have on average VERY GOOD LOOKING WOMEN, much better than american women or other latin countries, so if you speak spanish you'll be on top of your game when it comes to getting women there.
Plus portuguese is like a broken spanish, so it wont be hard to make yourself understood in brazil
and if you speak english it's one of the easiest languages to learn.
World traveler, questions about women from a certain country? Ask!!! I can help
I speak both of these among others but make sure you have some money or a good source of income to go along with that. Also, if you shorter than 5'6" maybe learning Tagalog would be better for you.
Russian is now a colonial language much like English or Spanish. It is spoken by some 140 million people outside of Russia. Countries like Ukraine and Kazakhstan tried to get rid of it but could not. Too ingrained by now.
To those who are learning Russian I would give the same advice that I received when I was learning Arabic- learn broken Arabic with no grammar. Just learn it. Later on you will correct it as you go along. Same with Russian. In Moscow you can meet many Asian people from Uzbekistan, native Siberians, Azeris, etc. They all speak Russian fluently but wrongly- the grammar is all messed up. Same with Africans in Ukraine. The language is broken but flowing. They can explain everything they want.
If an uneducated Uzbek fruit vendor can speak fluent but accented and wrong Russian and still communicate everything he needs, so can you.
So don't get caught up in all these niceties. Use phrase books, make sentences in your head and just talk wrong but talk.
This is my poem about Spanish. Don't let this happen to you!
Spanish Language vs. Language of Money.
When I was young
I had a dream-
To fall in love
On distant shores.
My teachers said to me
To learn the language
-It opens doors".
If local cultures
The people will
You will have friends
And go on dates,
And you will never
And then I bought
A Spanish book
To help me learn
That graceful tongue.
I then that project
I studied hard,
I studied long.
And then in Spanish
A fluent speaker
In a year.
I spoke it well
And felt no shame
To make myself
To others clear.
And to a sultry land
To fall in love
I hoped immensely,
With swarthy maidens,
Hand in hand,
Walk on the beach
And kiss intensely.
But even though
I could converse,
I did not score.
If fact, I kissed
No one at all
And moped alone
Upon the shore.
"What was the problem?"
You will ask.
You see, it wasn't
Was one such task
That needs no tongue
I saw some other
No Spanish, not a word.
And they were fat
And had no hair,
Each one just looking
Like a nerd.
But boy, each one
Would have a girl
That made me boil
With jealous fury.
In Spanish dances
They would whirl,
In their breasts
Why, why not me?
And I speak Spanish
Like a native,
I 'm kind
And gentle, not high-strung,
And friendly, humble
But that was not
What those girls
Would look for in
A Gringo tourist-
I had no job
No cash, no pearls-
In fact, I was among
And since no money
They could smell,
Down their noises
At me they sneered,
Although I spoke
The Spanish well
Like one big loser
To most of them.
Oh, boy, it sucks!
I learned my lesson
All too late
In Latin countries
It's your bucks
And not the language
That gets the date.

I've learned enough Russian to have basic conversations, but it's too hard to learn to speak fluently!! It was kind of like "ground-hog" day to keep having the same basic conversation with girl after girl. So I doubt most people will ever totally learn these languages.
"Woman is a violent and uncontrolled animal... If you allow them to achieve complete equality with men, do you think they will be easier to live with? Not at all. Once they have achieved equality, they will be your masters." Cato the Elder
I agree. How about this? Men should choose 2 out of 3: Spanish, Russian, Chinese!
I would also add that in Europe, German can be quite useful because in countries like Hungary, the young people study either German or English as their main second language. I think other European countries are similar. So the people who aren't very good at English are often much better at German, and of course, many countries have German or a language which is related to German as their official language.
In America, everything German is villified, but German culture is as legitimate as any other culture, and Germany existed long before WWII!
Everything Russian is even more vilified. Chinese is not vilified because it would be racist to do so. But with Russia and Germany as well as with Arabs, it is an open season. They are not among the protected species.
A brain is a terrible thing to wash!
You know as an erstwhile actor, that gives me an idea. I make a mean, tough-guy face on my headshot photo, and list language skills of Russian, German and Arabic. I know a few words of Russian and German and my accent is good.....
and of course I can shout "Y'Allah! Allahu akbar!!!!"
