    Would learning French or German give me more value added to my earning potential?

    I do not have any exams yet and know that exams are the #1 priority but since I learned Spanish so quickly I was wondering if learning French or German would help me more to gain employment or an increase in earnings?

    I highly doubt it. Change your strategy.

    In Europe your SOA/CAS exams will be mostly ignored, whereas in the US you need the exams to compete with other entry-level candidates. Languages will give you no points in the US.
