i speak cantonese (chinese) but i wouldn't suggest on learning cos it is really hard, espcially with the slang and all
but mandarin is good, u shud try it cos i went a class for complete beginners and learn loads from it. it's easier

Sign language would be pretty cool. Is their different versions of it?
you said american as if there's more than one, i didn't know there was.

German because my dad knows it and it would be pretty easy to learn because of that.

If you just want an easy language to learn for an easy grade, then I also recommend spanish.
