"What is a foreign language worth? An economist has calculated that the earnings bonus for an American who learns a foreign language is 2%. Over a lifetime, that adds up to a tidy return. But some languages are worth more that others; it is better to study German that Spanish, for example ." I wonder what methods were used in this calculation. Do you think this is realistic?
