Anyhow I took three years of French in high school, which was recommended for me since I had my eyes on CMU and other big universities. I suppose it helped in the idea of critical thinking about how words and sentences are construction and how language works. Have more computer language skills seems more practical, but is it a language with a short shelf life (the class I took was in Pascal)? A spoken language is helpful with communicating to more people, but is translation technology making this less of a need?
