I'm learning Ancient Greek in university along with Linguistics (1st year), with the intention of majoring in linguistics. But I'm iffy on AG. I don't know what good AG will do me later on. I chose it because I was coming out of high school having done Latin as well and I was really interested in Classics. That is, until the momentum sputtered out and I thought to myself: "What am I doing? Do I really want to be a Classicist?" And the answer is no. No offense to any classicists out there, you guys rock. But I don't think it's for me.
For those of you who chose to enter linguistics, is another language really useful? Did a living language (e.g. French or German) help you? Because I'm still at the point where I can forgo Mr Homer and Demosthenes and go for French or German.
