Must have more time!!!

Here we are in October already. Mid-terms are breathing down our collective neck and the stresses of student life at QC are building up at a slow but steady rate.

I noticed that over the last couple of weeks my French studies are dominating more and more of my time. I am not majoring in French, nor is it my minor. I am simply trying to satisfy the three semesters of foreign language required of every matriculated student at Queens College. Okay so here is the thing… you can’t cram a new language. You must learn a new language little by little, day by day just like you learned your native language as a small child. Consider now that you didn’t have to learn so much grammar and vocabulary in such a short amount of time as a semester back when you were a wee small kid and you may start to realize as I have why just about all of my spare time needs to be devoted to French. I like French. It is a beautiful sounding language and I am increasingly happy at how much I enjoy it. The problem is that I feel that I am being forced to neglect my other courses of study. My study time with core curriculum classes is almost non-existent! The very classes that are supposed to be preparing me for my chosen career as a music teacher are being pushed to the back burner by this side bar requirement of the college.
I want to know if you are experiencing a similar situation. Is there a required class you are in that you feel is causing your coursework in your chosen field of study to suffer?
