Hi there! I am about to begin my freshman year! My school requires 4 semesters of a language before a study abroad language immersion program. I was initially considering French, because I have always loved the language, but lately I've been considering Greek. My parents do not like the idea of me studying Greek, because they feel it is much less useful than French. I feel like Greek is good because I am interested in the language and it's not as common to be fluent in as French is, but Greek is only spoken in Greece and modern Greek isn't the same as Ancient Greek so I couldn't use it to study ancient texts. French, on the other hand, is spoken in many parts of the world besides France, and I could study French plays, etc. Thoughts? Thanks!!
