I am currently a sophomore in college, studying mathematics and possibly double majoring in physics. So far, I'm thinking of going to grad school in some field (not sure if it's math, physics, or etc). Right now, I'm wondering if I should study any foreign language at college. I'm already fluent with Japanese (as I've lived there for 12.5 years), so I'm already bilingual. My math department recommends studying either French, German, or Russian, even though I don't know why they are recommended (I guess a lot of scholar journals are published in these languages?). My experience with studying foreign language hasn't been very good; I've taken Spanisih at my high school, and I thought that was somewhat boring (memorizing a lot of vocabularies, understanding some grammar concepts until exams, and forget all of those after the exams) and difficult (an easy A, but never been able to speak it), and therefore, I've seen them as pointless because I realized it's almost impossible to be able to speak/read/write a new language unless if I live in a country that actually speaks that language, or if I practice intensively. On the other hand, I do like the sound of becoming trilingual (just for the sake of snobbyness: "Look at me, I can speak 3 languages!"), and I am somewhat interested in living in another country besides Japan or U.S. (you know, one of those kids who always want to "see the world"? Talk to some kids who have some experience with studying abroad, and they'll tell how "different cultures" have changed their views). But I'm also wondering if studying another language would benefits me when it comes to getting a job, going to a grad school, or etc. Thanks!
