grammar nerds rock!
We have one grammar tutorial a week for French and Spanish. I am really terrified going to class. It feels like I'm back in school again. Our tutors like to pick people to answer questions.

I found learning German a lot easier than French, we had to do both...I learnt French for twice as long as German too, so i'd definitely suggest German.

I personally enjoy German more. I just think it's a cool language.

The class also gave the opportunity to do the coolest high school project ever... make a german radio play. OoooOOOh yeah.

But I liked German more before that.

However, being a Canadian I sort of wish I had stuck with french because I remember surprisingly a lot of obscure words for having given it up in grade 9 and it is pretty useful.

My school only offers 3 languages: French, German and Spanish.

Take Spanish.

You live in the West.

It is fast becoming the second language in this country.

You will be able to use it.

Many emplyers are asking if new hires speak Spanish.

More and more of the labor force is Spanish speaking.
