Personally i would say French because a lot of other languages like Italian are similar to French if you want to learn others.

Go for French, German is very difficult to learn, especially the grammar, to many rules you must learn. Even though German is quite similar to Dutch, it's still very difficult for us (Dutch people) to learn.

But if i were you i'd check this site first :D

as to grammar in german, i've been told that it's just like in russian, with all the rules and stuff. so that's not gona be very difficult. plus edish(one of jewish languages not sure of spelling) is about40-50% based on german, so it's posible to understand them if u know german. prononciation i think is ok too. but what about french? how's the grammar and rules in it?

I don't know Russian, so i have no idea if it's got the same rules and stuff. Ok, with German maybe the rules are not so complicated, the problem is (in my opinion) all the exceptions on those rules.
Anyway, you're right about Jiddish or Yiddish if you can understand German then Jiddish wont be a problem and visa versa.

Jiddish: Jiddiš is gor ništ asoi šwer!
German: jiddish is gar nicht so schwer!

Almost forgot

I had French (a long time ago) for three semesters, i thought it was not so difficult, i think the grammar and rules are quite logical. The problem is the prononciation. If that's not ok when you go to France they just ignore you, even when your spelling is perfect.

I don't speak French, but I do speak Spanish and from what I can gather this is the translation.

"Hello, I am a Quebecan who is from Montreal and you are strongly urged to learn French."

I doubt that is completely correct, but it is nice to know at least one Romance language.

Oh and depending on where you are, you may want to learn Spanish.

German vs. French

Because far more people speak French than speak German. If you goal is to be able to communicate with more people, French is the better choice.
