I would definitely not recommend taking an introductory langauge course for an easy A. You should be able to earn an A, but language courses tend to require large amounts of time for learning vocabulary, doing assignments, etc. There simply isn't enough time to go over everything in class, so you end up spending a lot of outside time to prepare for conversations, etc.
Fun cool classes that I took were Principles of Sociology and Environmental Conservation. I'm taking Intro to Anthropology next semester and looking forward to it...unfortunately, at my school, I'll still have to write an incredible amount for this 100 level class.
