What have been people's experiences with taking language classes in the summer? I'm debating taking Japanese this summer. I don't need it for a requirement, per se, but I've got a research project that would be a bit easier, if I had a grasp of the language. I'm not adverse to work, and I took Latin last summer and had a blast. I'll probably take it pass/no credit, so I don't care about getting an easy 4.0. For those who've taken langauges this way, was it worth it? And how insane was the workload? I don't mind putting effort in, but I have no tolerance for bullshit busywork since passing my comps.
