    Depends what kind of biology you're interested in. If you're looking at cell/molecular biology, you'd probably be working with a lot of European countries, so you might consider French or German. If you're thinking about environmental biology, it depends what you want to study. Tropical biologists, for example, would be wise to learn Spanish, because of the many rain forests in Central and South America. On the other hand, if you're interested in the tundra or the arctic, you would want to take Russian or a Nordic language.

    You would need Latin, and maybe German or Japanese. Germany has always been very good at advancing in science.
