I'm really unsure right now of which language to take. I am deciding between Spanish and German. Which is considered the easier to get an A in...

    Dude, seriously...? Choose the one you will like. An A is attainable in most language classes here (lots of work, but I imagine at least A- is doable). Stop worrying about the easy A for foreign languages. What you get out of these classes may help you if you go abroad. Look at the big picture, not "I'm just going through motions, I must have an A". If you take only courses you expect an easy A, you will be disappointed by the education you got here, because many of those classes suck (prof. or the general way in which the topic is approached). If your education is only about As, do it for other classes, but please not for this. And besides, I here, that if you have experience, most languages here will be easy (except for Chinese, Japanese, and perhaps Italian). Just pick one.

    Well I have taken Spanish for four years and enjoy it, but at the same time I have always wanted to learn German. I was kindof using the "which is easier" strategy as a tie breaker...
