Regarding a foreign language, I chose to take Spanish at Midwood High; I regret not taking other languages, in addition, which were also being offered. For example in addition, French, Hebrew, and German were also offered. In addition, I took a year of Spanish at CCNY. Unfortunately, my fluency skills in Spanish are limited. I've had occasion to use some Spanish in Spain, Puerto Rico, Venezuela, and Guatemala. In Columbus, Ohio, where I live, I'll occasional use Spanish with various contractors or store clerks. On the other hand, if one travels to Europe, the Europeans are very fluent in foreign languages, and it is not uncommon to see Europeans who can speak three or four foreign languages, fluently. Of course, there is one more foreign language which was not formerly taught in school,and that is Brooklynese. Incidentally, the best Spanish teacher that I had at Midwood was Mr. Tholfsen, at the Midwood Annex.
