        Canadian politics isn't real politics, you can't get in trouble for that.

          Why anyone would decide to take French over Spanish in today's world is a mystery to me. French is a dying language, only being spoken in France, Quebec, and a few African nations. Meanwhile, Spanish is slowly becoming the unofficial second language of the US. My biggest regret was not taking my Spanish classes more seriously because I could be making a TON of cash right now if I was even remotely fluent in Spanish.

          If you want to make a ton of cash, start learning Arabic.

                Xon, I work in the food industry and am slowly picking up words and phrases that Mexicans commonly use. What would be your advice for me speaking to them, and for me listening to them to learn more? The words I end up using most often are... Lo siento, no comprendo, no se, and repete por favor. Also, they laugh at me when I use "con permiso" to get by them in a tight space. I'm guessing this is a very formal way to say to excuse me. What's something more casual? Pardon?

                    Haha...there's a difference between not being the most important 2nd langauge anymore and "dying". I'm pretty sure French is going to remain a relatively important language.

                    But yes, every person in the United States should know Spanish. I personally know both, and a little Portuguese. Once you pick up one romance langauge you can basically learn them all.

                      I chose to learn French a few years ago, and I didn't know that the Spanish language was taking over the U.S. If I could go back in time, I'd switch to Spanish

                        I know a little bit of French, a little Arabic, some German, and I am fluent in Hebrew.

                          Fun language, I studied it for a year at university, once you get the new alphabet down, grammatically it's pretty easy.

                            Was anyone allowed to take Italian at their school? We dont have that at our school. We had French, Spanish, and German to choose from

                              My high school had Spanish, French, Italian, and Chinese. No German for reasons I won't get into. I took Spanish freshman and sophomore years, and both Spanish and Italian junior and senior years. I'm now taking Spanish as a freshman in college. I'd say I have a good feel for the language, but I'm definitely not fluent.

                                I'm orinally from Russia, so I speak it well.

                                Still, I've been in US most of my life and English has become by 1st language.

                                I'd like to learn Spanish also. It would be cool to speak 3 languages.
