Starting Chinese, Russian, Japanese, etc from scratch in college?
I've never taken any of these languages before, though I am a language learning enthusiast. I'm just used to ABCs instead of completely different characters. I plan on double majoring, half international business, half language. Is it crazy to start one of these as a total beginner, especially since I would have to learn to write differently? Or do colleges focus mainly on speaking these first? I have heard Russian and Chinese are notoriously difficult, so would it be a horrible idea to pin my grades on them when I have zero experience?1 replies
