Which language would be more useful to take in college, Spanish or Chinese (Mandarin)?
Which would be more useful for the future and for life in general. I am interested in doing business in the future (hopefully in the tech industry).
Neither language would be extremely hard. I took Spanish in middle and high school for six years, so I'm pretty good but not fluent. With some study abroad I could become fluent.
However, I am of Chinese descent, but I am not fluent. My parents spoke some Chinese to me when I was young, so I sort of have an intuitive feel for it. I also took weekly Chinese classes for many years, but they were poorly taught. I can usually sort of understand what people are talking about in Chinese, but I can't really reply because my vocab is very limited.
Any ideas? I'm leaning towards Chinese right now, but someone told me that everyone in China is learning English now, but many Spanish speakers don't learn English.
