Out of that list, Latin. It gives you atleast a basic understanding of so many languages.

That's a very good question actually. I would love to have studied poltics, philosophy and Latin and would have certainly taken them all if they were offered at my school (probably politics and philosophy in 5th year and Latin in 6th). I chose philosophy though, as I initially wanted to apply for philosophy at uni (changed my mind though).

i would like to do psychology, but our school doesnt do it. In the travel column they have it but my colums didnt work out for my course choice so i ended up being forced into taking business management, which i do not want to do. Gah, course choice sucks sometimes... dry.gif
