I took three years of Spanish, but stopped two years ago...of course, in one of the bigger ironies in my life, I ended up spending 3 weeks in Costa Rica this past summer, with Spanish class being two years removed...I'll fess up that it would have helped a little bit there...

lol even as an American high school senior, I'm taking both German and French...by choice. (Which is why I'm not on the boards often anymore!) Most seniors drop their language after junior year, but I just added another one!

I took two semesters of French but didnt learn anything. Some words did stick. But i mixed spanish and french together all time. And the teacher was like, thats spanish not french. She would get anal about that! I always hated it when test time came around. never did good on those. I think i will just stick to english and spanish, i think its enough speaking two languages. But i am thinking of taking some courses in Italian, Too bad my school doesnt offer it. They only offer spanish, french, german, and russian.

French is my mother tongue and I am fluent in English. I am also pretty good in German. I have also learned the basics of Czech (very difficult) because I often go to Czech republic (Prague). Now I am learning Italian as well. I simply love languages. I think it is great when you may be able to exchange a few words when visiting a country.
