Did your school have any foreign language requirements (as in, that you have to take, or at least prove your proficiency in before you can graduate)?
What school, if I may ask?
And where is that school? (country if it's not in the US/or state if it's in the US, works for me =)
I go to a 4 year University in Ohio (US), and out of the 6 (I think?) colleges that my university has. . . . most of them (I think 4) have a foreign language requirement of 4 semesters. . . . of course, one can test out of one or more, if they're proficient enough.
I didn't think that this was that abnormal, but upon talking to some people they seemed to think this was a lot. So I wanted a broader perspective :-P
