In but a matter of a few days Killersup will be choosing his electives. His school district demands that every student take a foreign language. Now here is the question. Spanish or French? Killersup has yet to meet either of the teachers, and has heard mixed reviews from both classes.

Do Spanish. You're going to meet more people from Mexico than people from France.

If you want to interact with more people.

Or do it in a way from your favorite thing.
Oh, football? Well Spanish is the way to go!
Oh, fashion? Well French is the way to go!

I picked my language by thinking of which place I would rather visit. (I had Spanish vs Italian) I picked Italy, so Italian. I like their food, culture, music, and basically everything.

*shrugs* Spanish and French sound the same to me.
Ooh, you should take Chinese, if it's offered. It's a freak load easier than people say (but then again, since i've been learning for a while, that may be just me.)
Anyway, is Spanish and French all that's offered?

Between Spanish and French I would go with Spanish. More people in the world speak Spanish. Also Spanish is very similar to Italian. So if you know one you pretty much can understand the other.

And Portugese.

But I would say if you're looking for the easier one it would be Spanish. But don't listen to me. I'm not in high school ^^

If my high school will offer it then i'm gonna take German ^^

I flunked Spanish my freshmen year....got an 8%.

So I don't need to tell you I wouldn't suggest Spanish, though a lot of people say it's the easiest to learn.

You don't really NEED a language, I'm attending college in the fall and I don't have one completed. Though it is possible I have to take a foreign language in college, so it may be better to do it before you have to pay for it.

I would choose French. A ton of people know Spanish, but you don't see many people that can speak fluent French. (You'll probably never need either, but don't let that stop you. Think of the bragging rights you acquire with a second language.)

I would choose Spanish because it;s easier to learn French and Italian and a few other languages by just knowing Spanish and English.

Though it could be the other way around as well but I'm not sure.

In any case I would take French since I already know Spanish :P That or Japanese. .-.
