Sprechen Sie Deutsch? Ja!: "Hannibal Hopson, a freshman at Pittsburgh Schenley High School, has taken German since he was in kindergarten.The language instruction in the city schools in some situations is wonderful. Sadly, it isn't always nearly as good as it should be -- and could be.
He said he had chances to change languages, but said, 'I actually like the language personally. I want to be at the highest level I can get.'
He likes the pronunciations and the fact German is close to some other languages."
