I believe many pupils have pulled this off during their years of forced learning.

Forced learning... Yes, because having the possibility to learn another language is such a punishment.

In my school you don't have the option. I don't know how it's where you live, but we can't choose our classes. We just have to take them.

Whether we have the option or not, I fail to see how trying to learn another language will ruin your life. Trust me, here in France the people are the very first to complain about having to learn another language which, in all honesty, is a pity.

I don't think getting to learn another language is a bad thing, I just find it sad we can't choose which language we prioritize. I wished I'd have gotten more English and German, because my English grammar isn't that good, and my German is, aside the pronunciation (West-Flemish is very similar to German), is terrible.

Et le français.. C'est une langue difficile.

For a fellow polyglot, I find it disappointing you call taught languages at school "forced learning". Sure, you might not choose which languages you WANT to learn now but that's what uni's for, personal enlightment! Aren't history, mathematics and biology also just forcefully taught?

Et oui, j'en suis fortement conscient, j'ai dû très rapidement m'adapter du Néerlandais à la langue de Molière!

Very true, yet I never said I hated the concept of forced learning, did I?
We are forced to learn in Belgium. Whether that is a bad or a good thing is something everyone decides on their own.

Although there are some classes I wouldn't have mind not having. I doubt I'll do much with the history of drama in the Netherlands as a foreman..
