I’m chinese and I’m having difficulty choosing a foreign language for high school. I’m gonna be an incoming freshmen. I already know how to speak mandarin, and read and write a bit. In addition to mandarin, i know how to speak Cantonese as well. I know that chinese is very big on our society right now, but I live in california. Many people here know how to speak spanish. I’ve also heard that many colleges are more interested in students to take a language that is unfamiliar to them like Chinese to take french, german, or spanish, and Caucasians to take mandarin. In the future, i would like to become a doctor. Which would be a better choice for me, mandarin, or spanish?
