It's French and English here. But Spanish is getting very common too. I learn some from Dora the Explorer. Lol

 Once the kids get into middle school they must take a foreign language class

I wholeheartedly agree with the list. We thought we should get our boys learning at a young age so our older son attends a foreign-language magnet school. His sibling will go there also when he is of school age.

My kids are 6 & 7 years old and they've been learning french, on and off for the last year or so. They pick it up so quick.
