Take Foreign Language or a less time-consuming humanities elective?

  1. Apr 21, 2012 #1
    at my school students need to take either 6 hours of "foreign culture" class or 6 hours of a foreign language.

    Which do you think I should do? The foreign culture classes are way less time-consuming but I thought it would be interesting to learn a second language.

    I don't think you can learn a language in any meaningful way in a purely academic setting, it is a lot more effort than that.

    Well since I don't want to take 4 math classes at a time, I have an open slot in my scheudle each semester so I thought foreign language would be an interesting way to fill it.

    What non-math class do you guys think I should take each semester?

    Well if your math classes take up a lot of time, take whatever is the least amount of effort for a non-major class in my opinion.
