Hi, last year I had lessons of Spanish 4. I got bored of Spanish and my schedule was tight. I had begun a new program in college and I could not much Spanish, because there were always new teachers every year and then I did not learn so much before. So I decided to skip Spanish to catch up on the new program I had started in. I was not smart and I figured out too late that Spanish 4 could give me merit points. Also, it could help me get a higher grade, even if I had a low grade. My friends had already been in that course but now I am late to go back but if I return next year then my friends will be gone from Spanish lessons and then it would only be people who are younger than me if I chose that course again. So I am also doubting if I should study Spanish in the summer and return back to get the merit points for the university or should I skip Spanish totally and start with German 1 who will not give me any merit points? What would you do? I hope you understand what I want to mean.

Well, Spanish is a much better choice than German simply because Spanish is much more of an asset in life than German.
Almost 5% of the world population speaks Spanish, while English is spoken by less than 1% of the world population. You get much further ahead in life speaking Spanish than German. Furthermore, Spanish grammar is easier than German grammar.
As a matter of fact Spanish language is spoken by more people in the world than English. Therefore, it would be a much better asset to you because except for Germany, Austria, parts of Switzerland and a few other minor countries, German is not readily spoken or understood while Spanish has more common Latin roots with a number of other languages.
If you speak Spanish, you can understand parts of Italian and Portuguese language as well.
It is so true. Thanks for your opinion!
Actually, I made a small mistake. It is German that is spoken by less than 1% of the world population. English is close behind Spanish.
Yes, you`re right
