Does anyone who took French in high school actually use it? And is Latin just a big waste of time? Someone polled over 20,000 Americans and asked what the most useful second language is. And the top choice by far was Spanish.
61% said Spanish. And then way down the list in second place is Chinese or Mandarin with 5% of the vote.
French is third with 3%, and then German at 2%.
Latin only got 1% of the vote, along with Arabic, Hindi, Japanese, and Russian.
10% didn’t know or picked some other language.
And 1 in 7 Americans think English is the only language worth learning, and that ALL of those languages are a waste of time.
