Better, write all languages in order from most useful to least (or from least to most).

Well when Japan is one of your favorite countries and Russia/Arabic speaking countries are among your least favorites it sure is.

Portuguese and German are pretty much tied.

Depends on where you live and where you like to travel to. If you live in NA and only visit EU while ignoring rest of the world, then one set of language will be most helpful for you. While if you visit Middle east or Asia then another set of language will be useful.

The only language everyone can agree on to be most useful is English. Even Spanish is not popular outside of SA, NA, EU.

English, Spanish, and Mandarin are all one needs to survive, the rest are for pleasure.
