Language enrollments drop in USA

THE DOWNWARD SLIDE CONTINUES: Foreign Language Enrollments Drop Sharply. From 2013 to 2016, enrollments fell 9.2 percent. Declines include Spanish, still the most commonly taught language (Scott Jaschik, Inside Higher Ed). Ancient Greek and biblical Hebrew have now slipped behind Korean. Latin is the only ancient language still in the top ten (9th place).
