    According to the Spanish Coach. I speak Spanish on a 2nd grade level. I really don't think this is true.

    I took a semester of Japanese my Freshman year in High School but then my family moved and my new High School didn't have Japanese so I took two years of Spanish instead

    I had English, Latin and Italian in school. The latter two were such a waste of time.

    I really hope that as globalization goes on we'll just replace all other languages with English one day.
    Would make life so much easier.

    I can speak, read, and write natively my language of Tagalog/Filipino. I can also use the Bisaya dialect natively, which despite being called a "dialect", is really an entirely different language with entirely different construction. Also, I know how to use English, and been complemented that I use it like a native, so I guess there's that too.

    Currently studying Japanese. Been at it for the past...2 years, I guess?

    It was incredible boring. And unlike 20 years ago, you don't need it for any jobs any more.

    It is totally unnecessary to teach it in schools.

    you seem to think that something has to be necessary in order for it to be taught in a public school

    which makes me think you are pretty dumb

    Things taught in school should have at least a minimum of relevance in real life.

    Having basic knowledge in a broad field of subjects is useful.

    That's why kid's are taught both numerous social and scientific subjects.

    Run, out of curiosity, did you opt to take Latin or was it a requirement? And was this in high school or college, or what?

    While I believe that my three years of Latin at a university level helped me when it came to my grasp of linguistic development and my comprehension of English and the Romance languages, I'm not sure there's a justification for it being a required course at a high school level or below. Relevance is the key word - it's actually the crux of my problem with the U.S. approach to history curricula, as well. If you're going to teach a subject as a requirement, make sure it's taught in a way that brings home the importance of it in their own lives and in today's world.

    It was either three years of compulsive Latin or French.

    Anyone out there speak more than one language?

    In many European countries Latin is offered in secondary schools. In some countries, it's compulsory, but in most it's optional. I took six years.

    I don't know if I'm jealous or cringing. Do you feel like you took something worth while away from your years of Latin? Or was it just something to fill a requirement?

    At my school, you could either take Latin or French as a third language. I took Latin as the third and French as a fourth.

    I think Latin was worthwhile. It gives you a better understanding of grammar and language in general. It's also a requirement for the degree I'm aiming for, most of my fellow students have to take courses in college.

    But I should probably have taken it as a fourth language (four years) instead of a third (six years). I perhaps would be better at speaking French.

    Conversational Spanish and a few Japanese and Korean phrases, mostly because I spent a lot of time studying their cultures.

    German I tried to take once, back-to-back with my third year of Latin, and after one week I was pretty sure my tongue was disconnected from my mouth and my brain was disconnected from everything.
    Aw, come on. German is basically like English - only spoken underwater, by a shark, into a walkie-talkie.

    It's also one of the few languages whose name doesn't denote some kind of sexual act.
