Learning the third language?

I hear of someone saying that English is not enough when you want to communicate with the people from different culture. I know there are lots of countries that English isn't their native language,and that must be a limit for us to know each other better. If I want to learn the third language,which one is more recommeded? I heard of Spanish is the  second commomly used language in the world.Is that true?

(My native language is Mandarin.)

Ofc it isn't enough, especially when you want to communicate with ppl of specified culture. But here couldn't be any recommendation as well, it must be only your decision. If want communicate with Spanish folk, then you might chose Spanish, but if want to know Norwegian ppl, then your choice is Norwegian. In fact, it doesn't matter how widely the language is spoken if you want it for fun only. Another thing may be when it comes to your job and then advantage will be determinant and then it can be as well as German, Russian or smth else. But again all depends on your needs.

If you are interested in Europe and looking forward to travelling or working in EU. German would be a good choice for you to choose.

It's best to learn a language that you're personally interested in. That will keep you motivated. 

If you want a language that's widely spoken, you can look at the list of United Nations official languages. I believe there are five.

Good luck!

In my opinion spanish is the best bet. It is very similar to english and easy to learn if you have already mastered english language. It also highly depends on what culture you are interested in. If you know mandarin, english and spanish it means you can speak to like more than a half people who live on this earth.

It al depends on what you want to do with the language. If you want to settle down in a country, you might want to learn that language.
