Usefulness

Is it worth to learn Spanish and French anymore? So many people seem to learn it and I wonder if there's any value to picking either up. I'm sure there are other reasons like travel, literature, food to learn them but from a utilitarian perspective, how useful are they? Is the 'market' saturated for these languages? I'm in Malaysia and many people just jump for French/Japanese/German/Spanish and some others. I'm sort of motivated to learn a minority language at times. At least few people learn it, heh. What are your takes on this?
