My wife and I both have strong _negative_ feelings about the public school system here in the U.S., so we elected to pay for a private primary school, which teaches german, spanish, and Latin (although not all at the same time...the youngest groups only do spanish, then add german later...I forget where Latin fits into the scheme).
