It would be awesome to take a foreign language class while already being fluent in that language, amirite?

Wouldn't that just be a waste of time? I mean... you already know the language O_o

You have to take english classes and that's hell, right? It'd be the exact same thing.

Not exactly. In the majority of most (at least basic) foreign language classes, you're only taught and tested on the actual words of the language, as opposed to an English class where you must write essays and put your knowledge of the language into an argument.

If you're fluent in a language, taking a basic class in that language would be like going back to kindergarten, but without the naps or recess. Just the part where you learn your alphabet and the names of the numbers. How thrilling! And in the advanced language classes, you do usually have to do a lot more reading and write more essays, so yeah, it would be a lot like English class.

Exactly. You'd get perfect grades with no effort.
And the advanced ones would be pretty easy.

I plan to read college stuff like mad during NS so I can sleep during lectures and still get a degree. Basically the same thing.

NS is National Service, which is pretty much the government taking two years of every male citizen's or permanent resident's life for army training.

In my high school, they had Spanish for Spanish speakers. My friend, who's Puerto Rican, said it was actually kind of difficult, because they had to learn proper grammar and spelling even though they could speak the language.

Same. It's basically like another English class but in Spanish. And at my school they had to read and analyze books in Spanish and stuff.

I'm in the highest level Spanish at my school, and out of the 9 people taking the class, 2 of them already fully know Spanish. It really bugs me sometimes because I just don't get why they're there and they always show the rest of us up even though we know Spanish well too. Why take a class with literature and essays if you're already bilingual?

I do French in uni and there are people who are fluent in French in my classes
