About This Quiz

All high school and college students are required to take some units of foreign language classes. Some students study different languages for a reason. What are yours?

Maybe you're the artistically inclined foreign language student, and you study other languages to appreciate better the arts of the land that speak that particular language. You could even choose to be very fluent in that language so that you won't need to read the subtitles of their foreign films!

If you're a foodie, learning the basics of foreign languages could also help you in deciphering menus and food lists. If you've ever confused cheese with risotto or gelato with gelatin or soufflé with sake and stuff like that, then there could be a big advantage if you can just read and understand menus, right? Right! Careful with what you order!

But, of course, most people like learning foreign languages in the hopes of traveling to places where those languages are spoken. And sometimes, you don't even need to leave your country to speak a foreign language, because a country can also be diverse and house people from nations that speak other foreign languages. 

So, let's see what kind of language you took back then, based on your personality. Take the quiz, and let's take a wild guess --together!
