I am an undergraduate physics student, and it is required at my school to take and pass a 200 level course in a foreign language. I need to start taking a foreign language either this summer or fall. It will take at least four semesters to finish with my language requirement. My options are as follows: French, Spanish, German, or Japanese. There is also a possibility of Portuguese or Chinese, but they are scheduled oddly. I have talked to my adviser about which one would be the most helpful to me. She said all I need to know is English. However, language is a requirement for me. Which language do you think would be best?
