I didn't know that people were being forced to learn Spanish. Here in PA you can't learn a second language until you are in highschool. I'd much rather take Japanese but it's not available in my district. But Spanish is a really useful thing to know. I'm just taking Spanish because 1, I don't have to do a graduation project if I pass all 4, 2 it will look really good on my resume, 3 I know a few people that speak Spanish and it'd be cool to have whole conversations in a different language. Plus, I've heard that Spanish is extremely easy to learn. I agree, though I've only been in the course for like...11 weeks. But yeah I don't see why anyone should be FORCED to learn Spanish. But, people that move here from another language speaking country should learn English. I agree with that fully. What's the point of being in a country where you can't understand anyone?
