Do You Guys Even Know The Language By Taking It In HS?

<p>I mean I took french 1,2,3 in school, but I still can't even speak the language that well. All I really know are the basic things like hello and others.... </p>

<p>I think it doesn't matter to colleges if you take 4 years of that language if you still don't know it.. anyone agree?</p>

<p>Just use the french google or read wikipedia articles about stuff that interests you (in french of course) and you'll be surprised how fast you will learn the language/expand your vocabulary. I'm sure you can find Disney movies and others on youtube to watch in french. A structured enviornment isn't great for learning languages. It's all about immersing yourself in it.</p>
