What language should I take?
    #3334226 - 11/08/04 08:47 PM (12 years, 6 months ago)

I'm registering for the spring semester and have to take a language. I can choose from:

Spanish
French
Russian
German
Japanese
Latin

I don't particularly want to take any of them, but if you had to choose, which one would you pick?

Spanish is pretty easy and well constructed. Useful too if you live in the southwest and increasingly even if you don't. French might get you shot by neocons. Russian and German are excellent for cursing at people in. Japanese is hard, but not as hard as Chinese and Latin is fucking boring and difficult and tedious.

Choose Klingon.

Spanish is the most practical, it opens alot of the world up for travel!

Spanish would probably be easiest...I don't know. I always thought the Spanish language was sort of boring. Everyone knows a bit of Spanish.

It's a shame they don't teach Body language. It's about the most universal language there is...

you don't have american sign laungage? all my friends tell me take that class if you just want to pass the launguage requirements for a degree but if i were you i'd take spanish because all the cool places to go speak spanish like signo said, and if they don't speak spanish then at least half of the people will speak english (parts of europe ect.)

I took 4 years of French and Spanish at the same time, and in college i took 2 semesters of Japanese, now im trying to learn Chinese for my girlfriend (who is chinese) I would suggest Japanese out of that list because its a lot more fun, a little harder than spanish or french, but way mroe practical, especially if youre a video game nerd like me :P
