    Foreign Language and Active duty

    First of all, sorry if this question's already been asked, it's kinda hard to specify this in the search tool. I was basically just wondering if whether a foreign language minor affects where a graduate is stationed. For example, if I chose to minor in Arabic, would there be an increased chance...

    AFROTC Foreign Language offer

    Hello, I'm super excited to have been offered a 4 year type 7 AFROTC scholarship.

Is there a list of schools that where I can...

    Majors and Courses

    Do fourth class cadets select their courses and majors before their first year, or are your first courses selected for you? Like foreign language. I notice that foreign language is a core course that everyone has to take, but how is it decided what foreign language you’re going to take? Does...

    Foreign Language class

    Hey guys! I was just wondering if it was possible to take a different foreign language class than the foreign language you learned in High School. In my case I am a native Spanish speaker and let's just say I want to take Mandarin if I go to the USNA, is it possible?

    Foreign Language

    Is there any advantage with admissions/WCS for more modern foreign language than the 2 years recommended when applying? For example, 2 years of Mandarin in middle school plus 4 years in high school, including AP Mandarin senior year? Also, would attending an almost month long language immersion...

    Foreign Language

    I thought it would be helpful to have a recent thread on foreign languages. So just a couple of questions to start it... 1. What language should our younger lurkers/posters take? 2. How important is a foreign language in the application process? 3. How much choice does one have regarding foreign...
