A group of people from our local college have been passing around a petition to sign so they can start an introductory "Klingon" language class... They also want it an accredited transferable class... I no longer go to this school, so I am not sure of the details... I am speechless... I am all for people having their fun, but I highly doubt this will be approved... I can see the colleges now... What language did you take to complete your 2nd language requirement??? Oh, I took Klington... LOL... Technically, I guess you can say it is a foreign language... I mean many colleges dont approve or offer classes in Sign Language as a second language which they probably should... It's just as important as Spanish, French, or whatever IMO... The fact that most people who take HS foreign language classes in the US dont remember much of anything even after 4 years tells us maybe we need to improve the foreign language system... There were people in my College Spanish 1 class who had 4 years of High School Spanish who didnt even know basics...I also believe that in college, a 2nd language should be a choice, not a requirement... Many people have no interest or their major has nothing to do with it... This is definately a subject that you wont learn much of anything if you dont have an interest... Sort of pointless if you finish everything and dont know it anyways... To be honest, I learned more Spanish from the street, self training, and tv than I ever did in a classroom... Everything I use and remember didnt come from a classroom... It came from talking to fluent people and Spanish Seseme Street... lol... I also have a basic foundation in Sign Language... I have found it to be pretty important and useful... Thats why it upsets me that many colleges do not accept it as a language or offer it... For example, Sign Language would serve you much better in US Health Care than French... But, Klingon??? Is this a Trekkie taking things one step too far??? What do you guys think about this???
