Quiz: What foreign language class should you take in college?

Do you have a foreign language requirement for your studies? Or perhaps you’re just keen to pick up a new language?

Bilingualism, or even better – multilingualism, is something employers increasingly look for in candidates, especially as the world becomes increasingly globalised.

Plus, it gives you an advantage if you wish to study or live in other countries where English is not the main medium of instruction.

College is a great time to learn a foreign language as you can take a class as an elective, and you’re already firmly set within the learning mindset. Many adults find it a challenge to learn a new language once they start work, so it’s best to do so while you’re still in college or university.

But which language? No language is better than the other as they all have their advantages, but there are so many to choose from that it can be pretty overwhelming, and you don’t want to spend a whole semester regretting your decision.

It’s good to determine exactly why you’re drawn to a particular language, as some are ideal in business settings; some are better for liberal arts majors; while others can be picked up easily if you already speak a similar language.

The four most popular and beneficial languages to learn are Mandarin, French, German and Spanish. So which one should you learn? Take this quiz to find out!
