A foreign language is a language not commonly spoken in the country of the speaker. However, there must be a defined distinction between foreign language and second language. It is also a language not spoken in the native country of the person referred to, i.e., a German speaker living in The Philippines can say that Filipino is a foreign language to them, or a Japanese speaker living in China can say that Chinese is a foreign language to them. These two characterisations do not exhaust the possible definitions, however, and the label is occasionally applied in ways that are variously misleading or factually inaccurate.Read more on Wikipedia
