    Based on your experiences in the field, which languages (apart from English) seem to be the most useful for global health ?
    Thanks in advance !

    I've collaborated a lot with Chinese scientists over the past 7-8 years in my research training. So that's my personal recommendation, Mandarin.

    I've seen quite a few global health positions requiring french.

    Thanks for your replies. I speak varying levels of French, Spanish, Arabic. I was leaning towards adding an Asian or Middle eastern language, but since I don't have a specific preference I was wondering about job prospects.

    French, Spanish, and Russian are ones I'm working on. I'm not sure how Russian will play out, but maybe I can work on the East Coast or something.

    This is a good question because I'm curious about this too.
