So, when I was in school the choices available for the foreign language requirement were limited to French and Spanish. That's it. Same for my older siblings when they had been in school. Spanish and French, French and Spanish. For decades that's just the way it was. Of course private schools have always offered a wider range of choices, and even today public schools are often offering a variety of languages to choose from. However, it seems that French and Spanish still predominate. Is this productive for the world we are educating children to enter today? If a school were limited to offering just three foreign languages (for the sake of argument), which three would you choose and why?
