Hi everyone, just wanted to get people's opinions on this.
My youngest dd will be starting high school in the fall. She is going to a Catholic high school that offers French, Spanish, and Italian.
Are there any compelling reasons to choose one over the other, in your opinion?
She mentioned she is thinking of taking Italian. Our last name is Italian, as my father in law was Italian, but mother in law isn't, not really a heavy Italian cultural influence in the family. I think it may be because one sibling took French and one took Spanish.
Spanish is offered up to the AP level, but I believe Italian only has regular and honors classes. That isn't an issue, regular or honors level is fine.
My older two had language requirements in college-depending on where they tested in ability. One dd transferred in college credits in Spanish and only had to take a semester of Spanish and fulfilled her requirement. The dd that took French in high school switched to Spanish in college so had to take two or three semesters to meet the proficiency. I would think most colleges have language requirements, is that correct?
Any ideas/opinions, or am I overthinking this? (older two dds are already in college, I guess I need something to worry about!)
