katyapryde asked: Can I just say as someone who lives in Arizona and goes to school in Los Angeles and majors in French, I totally hear the whole "why do you learn french" thing so often. My french professor told me that in the business world learning Spanish isn't always better. She said that because there are so many people who know Spanish that you don't even have that much of an advantage, and that if you know french or german you have a better advantage than those who know spanish.
This makes me so happy to hear! Aside from recently realizing the usefulness of French in my experience, I’ve been seeing this article about how French could be the language of the future.
(Please nobody think I’m hating on Spanish. I think Spanish is still a very important and useful language. It’s the attitude that Spanish is the only useful one that I’m attacking.)
