This was discussed recently on these Forums, and if my memory serves me correctly, the kind-of-consesus was that it was French or perhaps Spanish, followed closely by Japanese and maybe even Korean.

Probably French but it would be a lot smarter and useful to learn Spanish since 18% of the world's pipulation speaks it. So if you could speak English, Chinese, and English, you could communicate with 76% of the world's population.

Whatever. Just throw me a bone to chew on while you rant.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
