I think the best thing i ever did for myself when I was younger was take like 3-4 years of Spanish. it has stuck so well with my. my speaking is terrible, but my ability to read/listen and comprehend is still very reasonably good compared to the average American EFL speaker and it has helped me in more situations than i can count since then.

this also has convinced me that the US is so dumb for not offering language courses to much younger students because i know for a fact the reason i retained so much is because i learned it while i was a preteen. I got so lucky with the teachers too, they taught us how to break down words and guess their meaning both in and out of context based on word structure, placement, roots, prefixes, suffixes, etc. such a good skill man, i am so grateful for it
