*in dr. nick's voice from simpsons* Hi everybody!
I'm selecting courses for my junior year in h.s., and I need some advice.
In my spanish 2 class, we have not even STARTED learning spanish 2 level stuff, we are still reviewing, I think this is going to hurt me mucho if I enter spanish 3 next year knowing barely any spanish 2 stuff.
There are a couple options:
1. My mom suggested taking german 1, i'm half german and almost all my relatives speak it fluently including my mom and dad.
Pro - I can get experience in a different language.
Con - Colleges might not like it, and I might not continue it into senior year.
2. Take spanish two again with a different teacher
Pro - I'll become much better at spanish than failing and not understanding spanish 3
Con - I don't think Colleges would like seeing a class repeated.
So, what is your guys' experience with colleges. Do they care if you switch languages, retake a language class, or would they rather you move on and get a worse grade?
3 year language is obviously a big +, should I go with trying out german, or retake spanish 2, or go on to spanish 3.
I'm definetly leaning towards learning german (the only reason i took spanish (which i hate now cause of my dumb teacher) was because I live in california where the language might surpass english in speakers).
All input would be great guys
Btw: other classes i'm taking
English 3 (required)
U.S. History (required)
Language (Not sure which right now)
