It might just be me, but it seems like most Europeans I've managed to come across have had to learn at least a second language in their studies, at least the ones from nations that aren't directly English. Obviously they offer to teach those courses in universities in America, but only French and Spanish seem to stick to anyone in grade school, if they even wish to learn them in the first place. I always felt like that was a little strange. I guess it makes sense just because the US is an island of it's own, and not connected to multiple other nations, excluding Mexico and Canada.

Well in Ireland and the UK learning a second language doesn't seem to be as important as say maths or english, in mainland Europe like Frace, Spain or Germany i think most people are almost fluent in a second language whereas here and in Britain its far less common. Although it is compulorary in the Republic of Ireland to learn Irish the whole way through High School. Where I am in Northern Ireland it was compulorary to do a second language at GCSE level, but thats been abolished.

French, Spanish and Irish would be the main languages on the cirriculum here and in Britain

Are you a music major or something? Unfortunately at my school to take music classes you have to have like classical training and all that stuff so I can't do it.

I'm a history minor. I find history interesting for the most part, as long as I get to pick and choose time periods.

i think a lot of european students learn second, third, etc. languages from an early age (which is when it's easier, anyways), whereas in the US it's put off til high school and college that you absolutely take a second language, and even then, i think we have taken for granted so many years of being like the "#1 country" and expect other countries to know english, should we happen to travel there, and we don't bother to seriously learn any other languages. i mean, i've taken french before and seriously wanted to learn it, but thought, what's the point? if i don't know anyone else who speaks french with whom i can regularly converse, i will lose that skill anyways.

that's true, I started studying english when I was 5 years old and french when I was 11 and it helped A LOT.

If you want to speak french with someone just use those website like livemocha.com, I use that to practice russian!

I think that's endearing. She doesn't care that much about what you want to do in life as long as you are happy.
