Imo knowing how to speak more than one language is one of the more useful skills a person can have.

Plan for and do what YOU think is the best course of action for YOU and yours.[/QUOTEWhat do you guys think about learning a new language as a prepping strategy ? Do you think its an asset? Do you view prepping as multi -dimensional or are you more gear-centric?
I am with Chipper on this one. Even though I speak German and understand and speak a little Spanish, I don't believe in a SHTF scenario that reaching out to the illegals that contributed to this great Nations demise will be on my Buddy list. Just because they were given a run on freebies from our Gov, doesn't mean my stuff is negotiable. Not under my watch this time.If you meet someone that can't speak English it's most likely the enemy. Being I'll be eliminating the threat anyway I see no need to talk to them in their language.
