Honestly, I picked Spanish because I believe it to be a very useful language to learn, given the growing number of spanish immigrants in America. I know that’s why a lot of people study Spanish. However, I think if I am to be a teacher, knowing Spanish will be very beneficial and helpful, because I am most likely going to have a lot of Spanish-speaking students (especially if I stay around the Oklahoma/Texas area). I am not sure the language of Spanish reveals much about Spanish culture…if anything, I might be inclined to say it is a somewhat simple language. Many things about it are straightforward, unlike English or say, Chinese. Perhaps that says something about the Spanish culture as a whole.
