I know English, and a tiny bit of Japanese, am a native speaker of Bahasa Indonesia. Any suggestion for a new language for me to learn?
Preferably
- one that that would be advantageous, i.e. help me earn more money in any kind of way (I've had several different kinds of job and I plan on trying another different kind of job once I'm done with my current one), or
- one that's simply interesting, or
- one that's super rare/unique/outworldly, maybe not even a real language (like made-up languages in fiction, etc.)

Thank You ^_^

Klingon comes to mind. It's the fictional language of the Klingon Empire, from the Star Trek TV series and movies.

Georgian.

Spoken just by about 4 million people in the middle of the world:



You will not be understood anywhere but in that patch of land.

Script - original and intuitive. What you see is what you say. Just five simple vowels and no diphthongs:

ა - a
ე - e
ი - ɪ
ო - o
უ - u

And a wealth of consonants (28) some of them queer.

Interesting literature spanning 10 centuries. Though I must confess I only read one book:

And that when I was in my teens.

აბა ყვავებს ვინ დაიჭერს, კარგო? გალიაში ბულბულები ზიან.
