That other French class has been taught since before I came to HOL, I took it a couple years ago and was confused as to why it wasn't being taught again this year. Thanks for clearing up all the confusion, Ian.
I have a different class in mind that I would like to see offered in the future. Through the years, we have had different kinds of language classes. We have or had a French class, parseltongue class (which was quite good), a Hungarian class, languages 101 (about learning different kinds of language). The class I would like to see offered is a language class with languages that can't really be spoken. There are people in the world who can't communicate like others can. Some who are hearing impaired or visually impaired. I had a friend a few years ago who was partially visually impaired and she taught me some braille and it was quite interesting the way it works. I have also learned and am still learning sign language as well. Languages that enable us to communicate with people who we couldn't otherwise communicate with could come in handy. Never know when you'd come into contact with someone who is visually or hearing impaired. It would make it easier for them to communicate with us as well. If there are other languages that can't really be spoken, this class could include them as well.
A couple years ago we had a parseltongue (snake language) class, so we could also have a fun class to do with animal languages and what they're trying to tell us by their barking and body languages. I know that's probably kind of dumb, but it's an idea nevertheless.
