I think it is very important to know a variety of languages. It gives you significant cognitive advancement or one thing, and for another, the door is opened in a whole new way to a foreign literary and oral tradition/discourse.

I can speak some Spanish, due to the fact that I took three years of it in highschool...however, yes, I do think it is very important to be fluent in another language. It can be very helpful and will easily broaden your horizons.
I speak three languages, two fluently. Spanish, English and Urdu/Punjabi. I do consider it important to know a variety of languages. It's easier said than done though. Two I grew up with, and the third I learned by marriage. The third I was determined to sit down and learn the alphabet with took me a year. Its easier to learn a new language if you are around others who speak it. The importance at least for me is it has helped when searching for a job.
