Will it look bad if I drop a foreign language?

NeonSignNeonSign Registered User Posts: 2 New Member
I'm very worried about taking French again for my sophomore year of high school. French has dropped my GPA by tons since I have gotten a C for one quarter and a B for another quarter. I was thinking of dropping it and taking Spanish instead just so my GPA wouldn't be as hurt. I'm already fluent in Spanish so I could most likely transfer into the higher level of Spanish classes. However I don't know if colleges will think that is ok, and I think it might look bad for me. I don't know wether I should stick with French and lower my GPA for the rest of highschool or take Spanish and possibly look bad to colleges.

    Since it seems you will not be majoring in French in college, I would switch to Spanish. This will free up time to focus on your other classes and hopefully enjoy your language class. If you do well in the Spanish class, I don’t think it will “look bad”.
