Continuing with spanish vs taking latin 1?

<p>I can choose between continuing with spanish(level 5) and taking latin 1. I'm very very interested in latin, but not really in spanish. (I'm somewhat interested in spanish, but not nearly as much as I am in latin.)</p>

<p>I don't want to potentially damage my college apps by quitting spanish for an intro to latin, though. Should I be worrying about this? I really do want to pursue my interests and be authentic, but not at the expense of my college applications. I can always study on my own if necessary.</p>

<p>If you were asking this after 2 or maybe 3 years of Spanish, I'd say do more Spanish. But 4 years is enough to show commitment, so feel free to take Latin. (In that it's not much different than quitting Spanish to take economics or whatever.) Go for it.</p>

<p>Bonam fortunam!</p>

<p>Can I have someone else comment on whether this is true? Not that I don't trust exultationsy, but I just want to make sure.</p>

<p>Take Latin.</p>

<p>The most colleges recommend is 4 yrs of a FL. Since you've done that it's fine to take Latin.</p>

<p>At many colleges you can place out of a foreign language requirement if you've completed enough in HS. Check to see whether this applies at the schools you want, if if it does whether you already have enough. If you do, then I'd suggest taking Latin.</p>

<p>Go for Latin! I'm in Latin 3 now...it's a great language that will likely enhance your understanding of Spanish and English (even if you don't continue Spanish courses).</p>

<p>You should take foreign language each of your four years which you are doing. If you start a language in middle school and complete level 4 as a junior and don't take language as a senior, that is inadvisable. As for switching to Latin you may find that some colleges require more than Spanish 4 proficiency to complete language requirements. If you want to take Latin or some other foreign language in college, then by all means do the switch now if that is your interest.</p>
